The checked blazer is my latest obsession in the outwear department. In my attempt to move away from my black, white & grey ‘oh-so Melbourne’ colour palette this Winter, I have been investing in jackets, coats, blazers etc that are anything other than glum and have added a little bit of colour to my wardrobe repertoire.  Recently, I’ve also been spending a lot of time thinking about how much I am spending on trend driven pieces, particular as the cost of fashion seems to be going up.

Therefore, the checked blazer or a statement outwear piece is the easiest way to add a bit of character to your capsule wardrobe and can be reworked multiple ways with everyday pieces that you already own. Buying only key pieces, but getting more out of your cost per wear, is this season’s moto!

The first look I have created with this Glassons’ checked blazer is one of a casual nature, think Sunday markets, lazy brunches or just something to throw on for a day of shopping. The pieces I’ve paired it with are pieces that you will see me in constantly like my levi’s 501’s, a comfy pair of black mules and an oversized white jumper which seems to be my base uniform as of late. With the sleeves of the white jumper peeking out, it dresses the blazer down and makes it feel less cooperate as jackets like this can sometimes feel.

Pairing my checked blazer to it’s skirt double and matching set, created my second look. Adding something as simple as an ‘of the moment’ slogan tee, emphasises a playful tone and is an ensemble, when paired with pointed booties can take you from dinner, to bar.

I’d love to hear how you would your checked blazer. Comment below!
