As much as I would like to be, I’ve never really been a jeans-and-a-blazer girl. Other people (like Lizzy, bloody look at her) make it the coolest look in the world, but I just look like Scott from uni who works ‘in The City’ on his Friday night out in Clapham. I’ve found a happy resolution to my problem with tailoring and denim in this outfit, though, thanks to the relaxed fit of this Mango blazer and the choice of red denim. I think a mule rather than my (usually preferred) trainers results in just the right balance of smart/casual, and ensures the blazer looks like an on-purpose sartorial decision, rather than borrowed from a boyfriend because I was cold.
