The new version of the masculine tailored blazer is one of autumn/winter‘s key pieces.
It gives an androgynous touch to a very feminine wardrobe. Wear this cover-up on your favourite lace dress, express you love for sartorialism and last but not least, show the public your sense of glamour.
Menswear fabrics and an elongated silhouette confer to traditional Sicilian elegance a modern update. No need to search very far, Dolce&Gabbana have the answer for our next season “pick in my man’s closet” mission. Like the designers, who created the rest of their AW 2010-2011 collection around the mannish blazer, you should build your capsule collection.
The rule is to keep it fitted so go for a straight-leg trousers or a forties knee-length skirt. There is more than one style to choose from and various proportions have been running down the catwalk. Single or double breasted, short or long, this piece of clothing turns any last year’s outfit into fall’s hottest look.
To bring this trend to life, think chic, powerful and ultimately feminine.
