Check Mate – Autumn trends


One of Autumns biggest trends this season has to be checked print, there are variations of the print all over the high street and lots of pieces to choose from to introduce the trend into your wardrobe.

 The check blazer is officially the most popular jacket of the season – one key piece that you can mix and match with pretty much anything in your wardrobe for an instant style update. Dressed up or down it’s a really easy to wear way to introduce the trend. Classic in shape and style, it is the ultimate versatile piece to add to your capsule wardrobe.

Wear it with a slogan t shirt and a pair of skinny jeans for an on trend casual day time look or change it up with a killer pair of heels and a lace detail cami accessorised with a choker and a detailed belt for a dressier look.

Try pairing the jacket and slogan t shirt with a leather skirt or trouser for an edgy alternative and  for an updated on trend work wear look try it with a matching pair of checked tailored tapered trousers for the ultimate sharp power suit combo.The possibilities are endless and it is a great classic staple piece to have in your wardrobe and mix an match.

There are so many affordable versions across the high street that there is a style and shape to suit everyone. Newlook, Mango, Miss Selfridge, ASOS, River island and H&M all have some great versions to choose from in different styles of the checked print that look very high end but without the high end price tag. Also try H&M for some great pencil skirt styles and River Island has some lovely coat options to carry the print through to winter.

 If the Blazer is not your thing there are lots of other options available to get in on the act with! From pencil skirts and tapered trousers to shirts, coats and knitwear check is everywhere so this is one trend that you can definitely check off your list! – #no pun intended! 😊
