As temperatures begin to drop, forget the oversized outer pieces and opt for something with a more elevated flair: a cropped blazer. For the office professionals, look to model Jenny Tsang and wear your midriff-baring piece with a cropped poplin shirt, skinny jeans and a pair of lace-up heels for an ensemble as fit for your board meeting as it is for after-work drinks. Alternatively, for something more off-duty, swap your skinnies for a wider leg and wear them with some chunky sneakers and colourful accessories.

A monochromatic colour palette is key to looking put together. Bold shades of bright colours are perfect for the more adventurous dresser, while a muted hue like brown is great for those looking to play it safe. That said, safe doesn’t have to mean boring. Add interest with patterned accents like this chequered embellished jacket from Celine or contrasting materials such as these suede loafers.
