Spring's #1 Jacket Can Be Found Everywhere, From Zara to Isabel Marant
The street style pictures from fashion week have made us want to buy one thing this spring—a heritage checked blazer. We have spotted double-breasted Prince of Wales check jackets on all our favourite street style stars, and luckily there is no shortage of alternatives we want to buy. Balenciaga, Gucci and Prada have created traditional jackets that are beyond beautiful, but if you can't quite spend £1335 on one item, the high street also has some gems.
We've spotted H&M's £70 checked jacket with ruffled details all over our Instagram feed (Pandora Sykes owns this one), while Zara has a boxy oversize style for only £90. Our favourite jacket of all has to be the Isabel Marant Étoile plaid linen jacket, which we think is exactly what Clueless's Cher Horowitz would wear today. But it's selling out quickly, so you'll have to move fast to buy this one.
This is a trend worth investing in, as heritage suiting is set to continue to be huge next autumn. We've seen these jackets all over the A/W 17 collections this fashion month, including at Jason Wu, Victoria Beckham, Toga and Mulberry.
Sold? We have found the best checked blazers for all budgets, starting with Prada and ending with an affordable version from H&M.
