If there’s one item I’m excited to wear this autumn, it’s the checkered blazer. The perfect transitional piece, it’s a must-have item in your wardrobe. This particular jacket was what I bought when in New York. We walked along 5th avenue and I saw it in H&M and instantly got Chloe Plumstead vibes – I think the inspo came from this outfit. So what’s so great about the checkered blazer, and in this case, the oversized checkered blazer? Well, let me tell you.
Dressed down? It works. Chuck on some jeans and an old tee. A big old chunky roll neck underneath, even better.
Dressed up? It also works. Put on some fancy work pants, or even go all out and get the matching trousers – you’ll look like the ultimate boss woman who’s definitely got their shit together.
A bit warm out, but not t-shirt weather? The perfect blazer weather. These are the ideal transitional piece.
Haven’t got the funds right now? There are SO many brilliant high street blazers out there right now. Here are some of my favourite picks:
Blazer – H&M | Tee & Jeans – Topshop | Belt & Sunglasses – ASOS
