The Jil Sander brand is synonymous with minimalism, a look that's seriously popular right now.

This Kelly green knit has been teamed with tailored ski-pants no less -- a sartorial gem that you'd think is surely best left back in primary school.

Well, fashion genius Raf Simons has resurrected them with gusto.

For those in favour, Topshop are doing a legging version complete with elasticated stirrups. Alternatively, choose a well-cut trouser like these from Zara.

Minimalism is all about detailing, or lack of, as the case may be. This River Island textured knit with its chunky crew neck collar is perfectly in keeping with the Jil Sander vision. While the clean, black leather platform boot is a style that Topshop nails time and time again.

For a final finishing touch, take note of the rich red lip and turquoise eye-liner.
