Checks, plaid and houndstooth this season were definitely all over the runways. Due to high demand, companies like Zara, Topshop and H&M quickly equipped themselves with some great affordable options.
I have in general a thing for checkered print, especially around fall / winter time, playing off of the seasonal contrast, so I didn’t need to be sold to jump on the pattern hype. But I did get the urge to find a coordinating suit version. Jackets and blazers are always welcomed in my closet but I wasn’t sure how much use I would get from matching plaid pants. So finding this wonderful suit at H&M was a major score that satisfied my suit cravings for checks.
While I was browsing H&M store I also stumbled on the loveliest polka dot blouse which to my surprise was only $9, so I right away grabbed it in 2 sizes: one to be worn with a skirt or tucked since it runs more snug and a little shorter and the larger size, which is a little looser and longer, to wear with pants and jeans. Do you do something similar when the price tag allows and you like the piece a lot?
Did you fancy adding any plaid or checked pieces this FW season? Or may be rediscovered some of your already beloved finds in your closet?
