Tone down a structured blazer look with a T-shirt: wear a statement tee under a bright yellow blazer to balance out the edginess of the boyfriend jeans. Go for a classic round cross-body bag and you’re good to go!

Who says maxi skirts don’t go well with T-shirts? Best when worn tucked in (or half-tucked in), pick statement tees with print only on the upper half to avoid tucking in the words. Stick to basics and steer clear from heavy accessories. Go for t-bar heels –certainly this season’s ‘it’ shoes.

When pairing a top and bottom of a similar colour, differentiate the texture to prevent yourself from looking monotonous. Throw on a contrasting vest and some neon kicks once in a while for a funky finish.
