Harper’s Bazaar UK’s Senior Fashion Editor Vanessa Coyle has the magical touch when it comes to styling spectacular high fashion looks for a top magazine, but her talents continue to work wonders when it comes to dressing herself.
This style maven has a simple sense of fashion, gravitating towards timeless shapes with elements that exude a balance between feminine and masculine.
From a boxy boyfriend blazer in an eclectic blue to an outrageous leopard printed sweater, Coyle wears it all, yet manages to always look subtly sexy and effortless.
The key is her sharp color coordination of soft colors and basic neutrals, and we can all take cues from her on how to make spring’s prettiest pink color edgy.
Coyle takes the pastoral vibe out of her gingham skirt with the sweetness of a pastel pink collared blouse. The addition of a masculine, camel-colored coat toughens up the skirt and blouse combination, and her edgy lace-up booties pull everything together by adding a rock and roll touch that is constant in all of her looks.

When it comes to wearing a masculine piece in the most feminine way possible, a baby pink blazer is definitely the piece to sport.
The contrasting black lapels keep things fresh and unexpected.
A pink blazer is the season’s most versatile and standout staple that must work its way into every closet – with or without black lapels.
