Autumn Trend Report: Prince of Wales Check

September 18, 2017

 

I don't know about you but every day I wake up a little disappointed that I'm not a chic Parisian lady who chucks on a blazer with some Chanel mules, grabs her Gucci dyonysis bag and goes to get morning croissants and a cappuccino (with cream not foam of course) 

Parisian style is chic, expensive, classy. Now when I say expensive I don't mean pricey. I know I mentioned the Chanel mules and Gucci bag but you can always get the look for less: 

 

Gucci dupe: Missy Empire 

Chanel pearl mules dupes: SHEIN  

You just need to find pieces with style and class but you don't always need a designer budget. Tailoring goes a long way to getting that classy style, and it doesn't have to look boyish, belting a jacket or wearing trousers with a paper bag waist can give a more feminine shape to a tailored look.  

This season a huge trend is prince of wales check or glen plaid, this print is one to look out for in tailored pieces to keep the Parisian look on trend for autumn/winter.  

It's so easy to pair a blazer with a slogan tee, jeans and heels for that 'off to get croissants' look, also a silk scarf never hurt anyone and always gives your look that 'je ne sais quoi' 

 

Here are my favourite pieces under £50 to incorporate this trend into an overall Parisian style: 

Plaid Trousers £23 

Baker boy hat £14 

Girl Gang Slogan Tee £8 

Check Blazer £20 

Silk scarf £25 

Snake ankle boots £14 

White knit £20
