Some gals are all about the basics, but I am a lass who LOVES to chuck a trend or 40 into my closet. While I was a bit sceptical of lasts years top trends (the corset belts are going to haunt us forever), this season is KILLING my bank account with all the fresh colours and prints peeking out at me in all directions. Pop a few into your style arsenal and prepare to turn heads in every direction.
My earliest memory of the check print comes in the form of Cher’s yellow skirt in Clueless. The check print is part schoolgirl, part farmer and part prep; making a cute AF essential print for every fashionista. While the print began its comeback on blazers and trousers, it’s graduated from chic suit sets to asymmetrical skirts, jumpsuits and the humble button-up.

I wasn’t loving this trend to begin with as it honestly looked like the jacket my nanny has been sporting for about 15 years. But jokes on me as Nanny is clearly ahead of the trends. The teddy coats are the warmest, most comfortable thing you’ll ever wear AND you look adorable in them.
