Need a new going-out look? Look no further than to the British model-turned-entrepreneur who consistently nails the balance of sexy and elegant. Throw on the topper over a flirty cropped tank and slinky silk skirt to provide coverage when you're en route to the bar. Add on crystal drop earrings, embellished strappy heels and a mini bag to complete the glamorous ensemble.

Yes, blazers can and should be styled with jeans, as seen on the model. It's the easiest way to elevate the casual piece. Wear with a minimalist bodysuit and a high-waist, rigid straight-leg pair for an effortless, cool result. Finish with edgy combat boots and hoop earrings.
