Checkmate

September 10, 2017
Checked blazers are massive this season. From the high end to the high street, this is one trend that you will be seeing a lot of! I for one love blazers – they have the ability to take your outfit from 0 to 10 in the blink of an eye, plus they just make you feel so much sassier don’t they?! Pair jeans and a t-shirt with a chic checked blazer and you’ve got that perfect yet effortless off-duty look.
And if that’s not a good enough reason to love this trend, blazers are also an excellent transitional piece. Autumn in the UK means unpredictable weather but a blazer will always have you covered. Cold but not cold enough for that faux fur coat yet? Blazer. Grey, drizzly, but mild? Blazer. Sunny intervals with showers? Blazer. Can you tell I’m super excited about blazers right now!?!

I’ve been looking for the perfect one for weeks, maybe months, but they’re all either out of stock or require me taking out a loan – both of which are definitely not ideal. I finally found this Prince of Wales blazer on Mango and it’s already settling in as one of my top wardrobe stables. It’s safe to say we’re going to be seeing a lot of each other this Autumn/Winter!
