You Can Get an Expensive-Looking Checked Blazer on Every Budget

If we had to call one piece the item of 2018, it would be a checked blazer. It played a heavy part in throughout last year, into our spring/summer outfits and now it's continuing through to autumn/winter 2019, too. We've spotted them on all our favourite street style stars from houndstooth to heritage and herringbone, any style goes as long as they're checked. And luckily there is no shortage of alternatives we want to buy.

BurberryGucci and Chloé have created traditional jackets that are beyond beautiful, but if you can't quite justify spending £1000 plus on one item, there are offerings from the likes of Ganni and Mango that are just as good. Sold? See how to style up a checked blazer below, then shop the best ones for all budgets, starting with Gucci and ending with an affordable version from H&M.
