Checked Blazer

I have aways been an advocate for a blazer. At one stage a blazer, jeans and T shirt was my signature style- I thank Victoria Beckham (circa 2002 ish) for the inspo. 
So, the current checked blazer trend is really working for me. I love the versatility of a blazer and how it can be worn for smart and casual. 

Here are some ideas..

My Style

I managed to get my hands on the Primark bargain blazer in 'Prince of Wales' check. For only £18, a great buy.

 Here are a few ways I would style it...

Here are a few items that I would wear with a checked blazer (as above)

Slogan tee- Boohoo at ASOS // Mules- H&M // Jeans- ASOS // Hoodie- H&M.

Shirt- H&M // Vans- Office // Boots- Zara // Jeans- ASOS

A bag is a great way to break up this outfit and add a bit of colour. Loving these two from Zara.

Red and green

Autumn/Winter always brings beaut colours to the wardrobe and my fave colours are this year are green and red. Green is always a top colour for me as feel suits me well and now I'm taking to red too.

They're both really workable colours so whether you buy a coat, jumper, skirt or trousers, you can easily find an item to team it with.

Here are some ideas.

My Style

I bought this top recently from H&M (link below) and I love it!!! I wore it for a night out with friends with high waisted blue jeans, strappy black sandals and my camel trench over the top. For casual I would wear with biker jacket, jeans and ankle boots. 

Secondly was this red jumper from H&M. Also worn with jeans (I mean, when do I ever not wear jeans?!) and flat mules for a casual look but am also quite liking this with heeled boots, black jeans and black fedora hat for a bit more dressy.  

Top picks

Here are my top red and green picks...

Top left- H&M // Top right- Zara  // Bottom left- Zara // Bottom right- ASOS.

Left jumpsuit- Reformation (also in red) // Right jumpsuit- H&M

Blazer- Zara // Earrings- Zara // Bag- Zara // Jumper- Topshop

Top left- H&M // Top right- Zara (also in green) // Bottom left- Zara // Bottom Right- H&M

So there's some personal faves pf mine but plenty more online and in store... let me know if you spot any more beauties.
