Style hero: The double breasted checked jacket
Welcome to the first post in the style hero series! Rather than buying lots of fast fashion, I prefer to buy well and buy less so 'style heroes' is about those versatile key pieces you will wear over and over again throughout the season but which can update any seasonal wardrobe and be worn in multiple ways.
First up is the double breasted checked jacket or blazer. Wear it atop a chunky knit or even a hoodie or slogan tee, pair it with jeans and Converse for a causal dressed down look or dress up with a pair of suede pumps to take you from desk to bar in the evening. It's an easy way to update your Autumn/Winter 18 wardrobe. Here's a round up of some of the best high street finds below.
