Y’all know I LOVE the clean-cut sophistication of a blazer but just add some interest with a checked print and you really kick it up a notch. Grab those basics from the wardrobe girl cos you’re good to go!
I’m writing this post from a beach house in North Avoca on Easter Long weekend. Temperatures are in the 30’s, the waves play my background tunes and autumn/winter dressing would normally be far from my mind. But, with the checked blazers popping up everywhere this was a highly requested post so here goes! Hope it’s helpful 🙂
I picked up a checked blazer from Missguided at the start of Spring last year and it was the perfect transitional piece as we moved into warmer weather. I swapped the knits and jeans underneath to cotton tees and skirts (as seen above) or teamed with a slip cami dress and mules (my uniform when it’s an ‘I slept in and have 5 minutes to look presentable’ morning!).
Checked Blazer + Slogan Tee + Jeans
Don’t pack away those slogan tees from summer just yet. Add a blazer and jeans for warmth and team with white cons for the weekend or boots for casual Fridays- definitely trying this very soon! (Images sourced from Pinterest)
Checked Blazer + Slip Dress
Ah the aforementioned go-to when running late! Also, a great way to bring a slip dress from Summer into Autumn before it gets too cold!
Checked Blazer + Skirt
Probably my favourite way to wear a checked blazer as I love the clean-cut but feminine combo. I’ve styled below with an old black Target skirt and a new Zara tan skirt. The best news is that the Zara one also comes in black and you can pick it up for $40 instore. They also stock the tan online (yep, Australia finally got an online Zara store!), but it’s priced at $46- anyone else noticed the price differences online and instore?

Checked Blazer + Colour Combos
Neutrals such as white and black are the no-brainers for checked blazers but I also love the colour pop from red and orange (more great leftovers from the summer wardrobe!).
Next up on my combo it list are blush pinks, cozy tan and icy blue knits. (Images sourced from Pinterest).
