Checks are a must have this season! This pattern can be seen on coats, skirts and jackets, especially worn by Victoria Beckham, the undisputed fashion icon. No wonder, since it is timeless and will give any dull outfit a boost. Find out how to wear a checked jacket like the English star!
Classic with jeans
One of the most popular combinations of a checked jacket on the streets of fashionable cities is pairing it with classic jeans and a white T-shirt. Such a combination was chosen by Anna Lewandowska, who chose a classic check pattern on a beige background fabric. This season checkered jackets combined with jeans are best complemented with white T-shirts, not the classic ones though, but ones with large prints, such as the one from COACH with a dinosaur
A great idea of what to wear under a checked jacket are also all kinds of lace and silk tops, which perfectly fit into the still current fashion for pajama pieces used in everyday outfits. This outfit will be perfect not only for going out with friends but also for a date with your lover. Especially if it is paired with stilettos
A blazer that flirts with dresses
Checked blazers are also great for complementing outfits with dresses in the lead role. This season it is best paired with a dress with a striking print or lace inserts. You can also choose a skirt to go with the checked jacket, especially one made of extremely fashionable eco-leather, which is another trend this autumn and winter! In this case, opt for midi lengths and pair them with knee-high boots!
Why is Victoria Beckham the godmother of this season’s checked jackets?
Victoria Beckham’s autumn/winter 2020 collection, presented at this year’s Fashion Week, is the epitome of minimalism. The designer focused on universal cuts and patterns, especially the checkered one. It was the leading motif on coats, scarves, sweaters and shirts, most often appearing on models strutting down the catwalk in the interiors of Banqueting House. Victoria Beckham combined it into single styles or showed it on individual pieces: dresses or skirts. That is why she is considered this season’s godmother of this pattern, which, among other things, thanks to her we can observe so many on the streets of not only Polish but also European cities
Apart from that, David Beckham’s wife has been a fan of checked jackets for years and presents them in her outfits, both in casual outfits with jeans and a white T-shirt, as well as those for bigger occasions. He usually opts for simple and tailored models.
How to choose the right checkered jacket for your figure?
If you don’t have a single checked jacket in your closet yet, it’s time to go shopping. To be most satisfied with your shopping, you should know which models to choose for your figure. Women of petite build can bet on jackets in the style of the 80s, characterized by a nonchalant character and casualness. Slim-fit check blazers are also a great option for them to emphasise their figure
Women with a pear and apple silhouette should reach for extended check jackets, which will effectively hide wide hips and excess stomach kilograms. On the other hand, if you have an inverted triangle silhouette, you can bet on Chanel style jackets and box jackets, which will help to even out the proportions of your figure
