Photoshoot: Gaia Repossi by Karim Sadli

From Diane Keaton in Annie Hall to Phoebe Philo at the CFDA's, the most stylish women wear menswear. Another case in point: Gaia Repossi, shot by Karim Sadli, for Issue Four of The Gentlewoman. Photographed in a mixture of Dior Homme and YSL with her father's suit thrown in for good measure, Repossi is the epitome of effortless chic, perfectly striking the balance between masculinity and femininity.

The Essentials: The Polo Neck

If black polo necks make you think of the milk tray man, think again. My most recent acquisition from COS has become a much loved staple in recent weeks. Made out of merino wool, it's the perfect weight for that tricky stage between seasons. I like to wear mine tucked into a leather A-line skirt with black opaque tights in a nod to the sixties, but I love the way it's paired in the images above with a classic pair of cigarette pants. Hey, if it's good enough for Phoebe Philo, it's good enough for me...
