A crisp white oxford lays a polished foundation so the rest of your outfit can be more relaxed, and an elegant cape coat imparts a sense of drama while streamlining the whole look.
Tone-on-tone pieces are slimming and keep the palette clean and concise. Rethink the cropped top: With a snug fit and curved hem, the right cropped sweater can rein in a looser-menswear inspired button-down. Continue the elongating (and super flattering) waterfall effect with a coat that hits a good ten inches below your shirt.
A sculptural short-sleeve jacket refines sporty separates just enough. For the ultimate in sleekness, start with a fitted turtleneck. Then top off your sporty look with a pair of track pants and mesh backpack.
A boyfriend coat is roomy enough to accommodate whatever you put underneath and should end just a few inches above the skirt. Inject some color into a neutral palette with soft pink that will give you a skin-flattering glow.
