As you know I’m a huge fan of neutrals for their versatility and wearability. However every so often a neutral garment is elevated into something more by its finishing details. Case in point: this Fendi blazer. Not only is it a beautiful cut, the subtle white trim throughout gives it a dramatic touch, but the piece de resistance is the bow at the back. I love pieces that feature a statement back detail as generally it’s so unexpected. It’s a great element of surprise.
There’s no other better pairing with a blazer than a crisp white shirt. This smart button down number (also by Fendi) features a simple embroidered logo near the hip, which I think is a quirky touch that differentiates it. For this occasion, I decided to cut through the dressiness of my ensemble by pairing it with jeans. I think a touch of denim adds a relaxed vibe that is the perfect counterpoint to sleek, polished pieces.
I don’t usually go for matching pieces but I couldn’t resist the oversized tote in the same hues as my blazer. I like the inverse colour palette and the fact that it’s roomy enough to fit all my essentials and any extras that may pop up. Finishing off my look, are my black Aquazzura heels and slim Poppy Lissiman cat eye sunglasses.
