Gentlemen, think of this as a refresher to pulling off the trendiest looks; and ladies, here’s how you can incorporate envy-inducing men’s wear staples into your own wear.

Layering

Layering is not only about wearing a chic blazer or coat over a hooded sweater. The trick lies in how you mix you r co-ords by colour, finish and silhouette.
