It’s 2017 and the world is becoming ever more difficult to navigate. Which foods give you cancer? How to talk about politics at the dinner table? And, that old chestnut, how do I wear tailoring now?
We’ve browsed street style and catwalk looks to bring you this: a guide on how to make your tailoring wardrobe contemporary, fabulous and enviable.
Whether you’re a karate extraordinaire or not, adding a black belt to your trousers or to the waist of a boiler suit will instantly add a feminine silhouette with a masculine accessory.

Go a couple of sizes up in that jacket you like so that it becomes your new favourite (and comfiest ever) dress.
