Keeping My Wardrobe in Check

It's that time of year again where checks are everywhere and I can't get enough, my favourite girly flick Clueless always springs to mind, with the most memorable 90s look below where Cher and Dionne arrive at the school entrance, wearing matching checked skirt suits. Don't they look fabulous? If only I could pull off that yellow...

The classic check trend is very versatile being worn in a variety of styles and colour options (think mustards, browns and greys) especially for office wear. I'm all about rocking a sophisticated checked blazer with black jeans and a tee or cute pinafore dresses over roll neck jumpers, mini skirts under a knitted jumper the options are endless! Below are two check outfits that I have worn over Autumn/Winter that I absolutely love and hopefully inspire you to get your check on!

I purchased this lovely check coat from George at Asda for just £30 which i think is a really reasonable price and I have received lots of compliments. Its natural hue checks, faux-fur collar and tailored cut design make it the perfect transitional piece from Autumn to Winter. As checks already make a huge statement by themselves I styled the coat with a burgundy dungaree dress from Primark and black boots from New Look.


For my second check outfit I am taking it back to my city break to Prague, it was quite mild for October so I had no idea what to pack but I spotted this Primark pinafore dress (£13) and grey tee (£5) in store which styled together perfectly. 
The great thing is the versatility of this checked dress, I can wear it over multiple coloured tops including navy, black, cream and grey.

I finished off my evening look with the colour black as you can never go wrong! This included my black blazer from Peacocks, black bag from New Look and black knee high boots from Forever 21. 

Which is your favourite check outfit?
