While this outfit on Acne's brand manager Louise Du Toit may seem like it proves the fact that a sharp blazer makes anything—even denim cutoffs and white socks—feel polished, there's actually a bit of smart styling in here that makes this perfect outfit work. Firstly, make sure those denim shorts fit your every curve—and whether that means taking a pair of scissors to a pair of worn jeans, or dropping some dough on some that really fit. Keep the rest of the outfit sleek as well, with a pair of slim ankle boots, a nylon bag, and spare accessories.
