Why We Love It

The exaggerated details of this season's tailored pieces are sculptural more than menswear-inspired.

How to Wear It
You want to look impressive but not confrontational, so aim for balance. A sharp-shoulder coat over slim flannel trousers or a wide-lapel jacket with a straight pencil skirt comes off strong but approachable. Complete the silhouette with a framed bag or a grounded closed-toe pump and you're in business.
