Model, designer, and onetime Karl Lagerfeld muse Ines de la Fressange is a master of proportions. When you stick to classic pieces, such as a blazer, button-down shirt and the like, mix it up by playing with length and volume. De la Fressange's look here is a case study; with a long-line blazer, cropped pants, and an untucked shirt, she takes what could be a boring outfit and makes it tres jolie!
