A well-kept secret of fashion editors everywhere is to always opt for oversized when it comes to tailoring. Blazers are no exception and can, in fact, elevate a very simple outfit to new heights.

'To say I like blazers is an understatement. Almost a third of my wardrobe is dedicated to well-worn versions, from single breasted to statement, with a range of price tags. My most-worn are a linen-blend men’s blazer from M&S and this collarless version from Zara. Both have something in common: they’re neutral. When buying tailoring from the high street, a classic colour palette and an oversized silhouette can make something look instantly more expensive.'
