Ripped jeans can be appropriate.

Style Notes: Just the simple switch of sneakers for crystal-embellished stilettos will make all the difference when you're heading for a night out straight from work.

Style Notes: You may be forever entwined with your straight legs or skinnies, but prepare for the fact that baggy jeans are doing the rounds in high-fashion circles.

You can be super-minimal.

Style Notes: Your white skinnies don't have to wait for the summer months—try them now with a beige blazer and dark accessories.

Embrace neutrals.

Style Notes: Don't shy away from lighter shades—a beige blazer looks effortlessly chic when worn with mid-wash denim. Worried about looking washed out? Add a pop of colour with a top-handle tote.

Experiment with different types of blazers.

Style Notes: Your blazer doesn't have to be super-sharp—it's worth trying out softer styles for a more relaxed look.

Revisit pinstripes.

@jeannedamas

Style Notes: Dress down a structured pinstripe blazer with a basket bag, logo tee and frayed denim. 

Experiment with prints.

Style Notes: Not into neutrals? Switch out your go-to navy blazer in favour of something pink and printed. 

Don't overlook corduroy.

@leiasfez

Style Notes: Modern corduroy is ideal for the weekend—just add slim-fit indigo jeans and white accessories.

It's all about balance.

Style Notes: When choosing structured suiting, offset the roomy silhouette with high-rise jeans belted at the waist, and then team them with a fine knit and heels.

If in doubt, keep it classic.

@monikh

Style Notes: There's absolutely nothing more reliable than an oversized blazer, a white tee and some jeans. Bonus points for adding woven mules and a basket bag.

Ease into colour with muted tones.

Style Notes: If you think colour is a terrifying option, then start small with a powder pink iteration and team it with ankle-grazing denim and white heels.

Consider unexpected accessories.

Match your shoes to your suiting.
