If you’re not wearing or looking at a check blazer right now you could well be dead. Ok maybe a slight exaggeration but you know what I mean! It’s the IT piece for Autumn Winter and in the wardrobe of every fashion blogger / influencer / fashion girl worth her salt, and for very good reason. The affordable check blazer looks great on everyone and is the easiest way to raise your casual game this season.
My check blazer is a recent find from ASOS. Of course I completely fell for the double-breasted cut and boyfriend proportions. I’m still loving oversized everything these days.
It’s €95 so pretty good value too considering that I plan on wearing it with most of my wardrobe from jeans and heels, to skinnies and loafers to a leather skirt and boots. Get your hands on it here!
In terms of fit I would say this jacket is true to size. I’m wearing my usual UK size 8. It’s generous in the body and long and slim in the arms. By the way the blazer is meant to look oversized with a bold shoulder. It has huge shoulder pads! Just so you know when you’re ordering!
Other options I have my eye on include…
1… this oversized stunner from Tibi, $695 (so much love for this jacket)
2… this double-breasted beauty from Stradivarius, €40.53
3 …the blogger favourite by Anine Bing, €315
4 …this double-breasted blazer with matching belt from Zara, €99.95
5 …this piece of plaid perfection from Designers Remix, $595
6 …and this Prince-of-Wales check blazer from Mango £79.99 which is currently sold out but is coming back into stock soon!
