It doesn’t seem to matter exactly what you’re wearing
this season: cocktail frock, jeans and a tee, bejewelled
caftan and turban – pretty much everything has had
the ubiquitous blazer thrown over the top.
Blazers are such a fantastic staple: they can be
gussied up by fabric choice and lapel adornments, or
dressed down over your favourite basic cotton dress,
completing any look with minimal effort.
Obviously, not many boyfriends would take to a
lilac cotton jacket with peach lining like the divine
one by Therese Rawsthone (above). The ‘boyfriend’
incarnation is a looser, slightly slouchier take on
the tightly tailored original, keeping the look more
laid-back than your 9 to 5 suit, but still giving any
look a bit of polish. Roll or push the sleeves back so
the nice people can see your lovely forearms (and it
doesn’t look like you’re being eaten alive by fabric).
To steer your boyfriend blazer away from Miami
Vice territory; accessorise. Throw on a pair of heels,
chuck a simple silk camisole underneath or add a
gorgeous cuff like our pearl one from Jan Logan – it’s
a classic touch of femininity that balances out the
masculinity without going too far.

Run, hide, live in denial – there’s no escaping the
reality that double denim is back, and this time: it’s
personal. I mean, you’d be a little distraught and
seeking revenge if you were a trend referred to as the
‘Texan Tuxedo’, wouldn’t you? If you were vilified to
the point where you were only deemed appropriate
for fading country music stars and your dad? Well,
thanks to the cyclical nature of fashion, double denim
is having the last laugh: and it’s a deep, maniacal one.
It all started with the patched-up double denim
sent down the runways at Chloe earlier this year.
The crisp blues and devil-may-care simplicity of it all
captured the hearts of fashion forecasters everywhere,
and has since been brought back into the mainstream.
It’s still a tricky one to tackle, though: the most
important thing is to steer away from the straight,
buttoned up, matching denims. It’s easiest to get it
right with a pale denim up top and a dark one on
the bottom, and roll the cuffs so you’re breaking the
blues with a bit of texture and a flash of skin. Another
great way to attempt it is to wear the denim shirt
unbuttoned with a tee underneath.
