Today I’m wearing one of winter’s BIG trends… the checked coat.
Although the fact this is being touted as a trend makes me laugh!
Anyone over the age of 15 knows that checked coats are no more a ‘New Trend’ than white shirts.
Checked coats have been around for (what feels like) forever.
A smart checked coat is so easy to style and can be worn with anything from a dress to a pair of jeans.
Checks also look great clashed with other patterns such as leopard, stripes, spots or florals.
Checked coats are chic and definitely here to stay!
Today I’m wearing a fab checked coat that I picked up in Asda, of all places.
It’s amazing what you can find when you’re buying your veggies!
To be honest with you, I didn’t have high hopes for this coat as is was from a supermarket.
However, I was so surprised with how great it is… and such a bargain price.
Granted, I’ll need to layer up with a down-filled gilet when the temperature drops BUT it’s just as good a quality as most of the high street coats I’ve looked at.
(Some at 5-10X the price!)
BTW… in case you’re wondering Asda are NOT sponsoring me, nor did they send me this coat.
I just like to share a good buy!
I wanted to wear some masculine-looking trousers and a simple roll neck with this coat to keep things simple.
Adding trainers finished this outfit off casually and comfortably
Do you own a checked coat?
Is yours a new purchase or donkey’s years old?
I’d love to hear about it!
