destruction and restoration work well with a sword and spell class.

Alright, and do you know what armor is good?

Don't use Destruction one handed. Just don't.

Illusion, Alteration (specifically Paralyze), and Resto are all much better choices.

Destruction and one handed is kind of redundant. Restoration is a must have. Then I would recommend illusion or alteration.

Spellsword is the style I adopted for my character, and what I've learned along the way is;

Restoration is, for very obvious reasons, very useful.

Illusion is, perhaps, best of them all. Nothing better than making your enemies fight amongst themselves while you clean up, or simply removing enemies from the battlefield all together by pacifying them. It's great crowd control.

Destruction is good fun (IMO) but generally not that useful (though the Cloak spells help to increase damage output when you're in melee range, which you will be with the sword).

Alteration is kinda meh IMO. If you're wearing armour (which you should be) and it's enchanted (which it should be), then really the only spell it's got going for it is Paralyse. Granted it's an awesome spell, but I don't think one spell justifies spending perks. Just calm them instead (again, Illusion!) if you don't want them to fight.
