Autumns coming and its time to break away from last seasons strict monochrome prints, coming in are softer and brightly coloured checks. Here are my designer inspired autumn / winter trends 2013 showing affordable ways to bring checks, plaid, tartan, blanket weaves and laundry-bag squares through high street finds. Take the square route into winter.
Tartan, square patterns and plaid are a fantastic outfit feature but don’t over do it or it can become tacky. In my list I have begun with a Plaid Full Woven Skirt by American Apparel. This comes in 4 different colour variations and would be great worn as a high waisted skirt with a jumper and tights for the colder months. Second are these gorgeous checkerboard bow hair clips which can be found at Forever 21. These come as a pair and are lightweight alligator clips. Thirdly is ModCloth‘s gorgeous Curriculum of Cuteness Dress, the name highly suits the dress! This dress gives a back to school feel and is made from 100% cotton. This dress is extremely flattering with the red and navy print and pleated A-line skirt. Number 4 are the gorgeous Rosie Tartan Ankle Strap Perspex Mid Heel, a steal from Boohoo at only £20! This minimal use of plaid has a great effect on this sexy pair of heels. Louche Ronnie Check Coat from Joy rounds up my list. This coat has the elements of a classic with a contemporary stylish twist. With a large faux fur collar and fitted body to skim the waist this sweet 60s shape cout is incredibly flattering.
