We have designed the entire look around this piece! The large, flared cut of the trousers are currently all the craze. Inspiration has been drawn from the fashion of the 70s with the denim fabric and high-rise fit. The wide leg and traveler's crease elongates the figure no matter your size. We love the big, rounded pockets as well as the tiny watch pocket—a signature element of any classic pair of jeans. This model can also be sewn in gabardine for a positively elegant allure.

This blouse is discreet, feminine, and absolutely timeless! The frill along both sides of the hidden top-to-bottom placket adds a particularly romantic air to this piece. Tiny gathers at the cuffs are also delicately dreamy details. The viscose fabric with dainty floral print strays from the classic look of this model to create a harmonious boho feel.

There was absolutely no hesitation in the selection of this blazer to complete the look. The clean, polished lines highlight the preppy style. There is a simple and classic cut to the model thanks to its lapel collar, pockets with piping, yokes, pleats, and double-breasted buttons.  The fine lines against the beige background of the blazer pair so well with the floral print of the blouse, creating a look that is marvelously new! Don't hesitate to sew your blazer in one size up and wear it open for an amazing loose-fitting look. It can also be tied closed with the wide sash for a fresh, coquette touch.
