Moving right along to day four of the Fall/Winter Trend Memo, it’s time to talk prints, and the star of the season is all. things. CHECKED.  Today I’m covering how to wear the trend from desk to drinks and where to find the best checked pieces of the season, but before we get to it, have you hit up the crazy Shopbop sale yet?  It ends tomorrow and things are selling out left and right, so if you wanna score basically everything you need all fall and winter while it’s on sale, run, don’t walk.  Just don’t forget to use code EOTS17 for the discount!  Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming…

Whether it’s a glen plaid, a prince of wales check, or a 70s-style tartan, these classic menswear prints are having their day in the sun once again, and if you ask me, it’s about dang time.  My 80s-inspired look today was one of my favorites of fashion week, and let me tell you, cropped blazers like this Sara Battaglia number are not only back with a vengeance, but when paired with anything high-waisted, the boxy line of the cropped jacket makes your waistline look teeny tiny.  Take THAT giant lunchtime burrito.

But whether you go for a cropped glen plaid blazer, a classic tartan blazer, a houndstooth bootie, or even a windowpane coat, there’s a little something checkered out there for everyone.  Check out (no pun intended) my favorites for the season below!


WEAR TO WORK

BRB, OUT OF OFFICE

  • This checked shirt dress is great for days when you’re running late to brunch after a slightly-later-than-planned night out, while this Lovers + Friends dress is the perfect option for said night out.  (This has never happened to me but, like, I can imagine.)
  • These cuffed trousers are insanely cool, and there’s a matching cardigan!
  • This incredibly soft ruffled top is just the sort of thing I live in all season long, apple-picking excursion or not.  I also love this oversized plaid boyfriend shirt as well.
  • All my pink lovers, look no further than this perfect blush jacket. Also, you don’t want to miss this pink DVF mini that’s on SALE!
  • Last but not least, you can plan on seeing plaid mini skirts EVERYWHERE this season, and I just purchased this one.

    That high waistline makes your waist look tiny. Not my personal style but VERY becoming on you.

  3. Maria says:

    What color top do you recommend wearing with a black and white check blazer? Other than white and cream?

    Really great outfit. I LOVE your earrings! Where did you get them?

    Great outfit. LOVE the earrings! Where did you get them?

  6. Another great look! I think my favorite things about this look is the pop of red in your bag and I love the chain belt that you’re wearing. Both pieces add a little edge and funkiness to your very sophisticated look!
