I love that the checked pattern has made a comeback this season. I’ve always loved a classic check, so it’s serendipitous when I like something that is also “on trend”. There are a whole lot of trends that come and go that I do not like and refuse to join in on, but checked pattern items? Yes. I can get on board with that.
I knew that I wanted to find a checked blazer to add to my closet, so I had been searching high and low. I find it interesting that most of the European brands had something to offer, but the American brands did not. Just an observance on the fact that America is behind on the trend… I wandered into H&M one day just to poke around. I don’t purchase much there because the quality is not great, and the whole ethical/conscious thing. However you can find some gems now and again, like this blazer. Great pattern. Great cut. Classic. It fit me well. Sold!
Oh, and it was only $49.99 USD. What???
Pro tip: It’s “oversized”, so buy your regular US/CA size. I typically buy a size 12 in jackets at H&M, but I am wearing a size 10.
Wearing: Check Blazer – H&M, T-Shirt – J. Crew (sold out), Denim – J. Crew (old), Loafers – Rag & Bone (old), Bag – Celine.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your week is treating you well.
