CHECKS & CULOTTES

how to style a check coat

You may be living under a rock if you haven’t noticed the print of the season – check! Checked coats and blazers are now a staple in every fashion girls wardrobe and for good reason. The Zara coat featured here is one of my current favourites. It adds an effortless polish to any outfit. The secret to a great check coat/ blazer is the structure and tailoring. Tailored blazers in longer lengths tend to be more flattering. It is a great complement to this culotte jumpsuit for an office-friendly ensemble.

I remember trying on this jumpsuit in the H&M store in Shibuya, Tokyo, trying to decide whether to buy it or not. It is quite unique because the simplicity is nicely accentuated, allowing the fit and lace-up detail speak for itself.  I continued this simplicity theme by keeping the accessories to a minimum with gold hoop earrings, Michael Kors watch and a pair of Nude stiletto pumps from Aldo.

In other news, have you checked out Zara’s new season? They have some really stunning designs; makes me so excited for spring fashion! Also, I’ve been feeling all types of wanderlust lately. Might just start planning my next getaway! 

Please leave a note in the comments section to let me know how you are doing and what you think of this outfit.
