Dressed up Fridays: A smart blazer


While we all have that mandatory black blazer in our closets for emergency meetings, why not go with a white crepe-linen blazer for a change? Satin-lined with a nipped-in waist, this blazer from Altuzarra is a chic and flattering piece to wear on days that you want to switch up your smart casual ensemble.

This wide legged trousers with leather tie embellishment from Martin Grant ticks all the right boxes in our fashion books. Instead of a predictable pair of tailored trousers, this high-waisted ones make more of a statement with its contemporary denim-like material and sleek leather ties.

High heel pumps are just what you need to elongate your frame. These burgundy point-toe leather pumps from Francesco Russo are made from vegetable-tanned calf leather and come with an ultra sexy curved back panel that peaks along the heel. While that detail might be hard to spot with your floor-skimming pants, no one will miss out on that gorgeous hue.
