11 Double-Breasted Check Blazers We’d Do Bad Things For
The Debrief: A blaze of glory
Vogue has called this trend ‘Dadcore’, but considering how many women we saw touting it at London Fashion Week we’re inclined to think of it through a more feminine lens. Though the double-breasted blazer may have roots in menswear, this season it’s got girl boss written all over it.
Unlike its masculine counterpart, this winter’s checked blazers are not intended to be worn with matching trousers as a suit. Though they have the natural inclination to add a sartorial smartness to even the most revealing of outfits it’s only extra incentive to play with the juxtapositions a piece of tailoring creates. For instance, take a leaf out of Kim Kardashian’s books and wear a blazer with a tummy-skimming bandeau top and sheer leggings. Or, follow the Paris Fashion Week crowd’s lead and team it with skinny jeans, a band tee and heavily-loved Converse. The beauty of this new IT item is that it's actually affordable as the high-street has dutifully created a handful of options starting at just £35. See you at checkout!
