Checkmate











What I'm Wearing:
Dress - c/o Lily Lulu
Boots - River Island
Fedora - Whistles
Clutch - Whistles
Necklace - River Island

Today's outfit is inspired by one of the key prints seen on the Céline runway at Paris Fashion Week....check print. Phoebe Philo switched it up a gear by providing colour at the runway show in the form of checks reminiscent of laundrette bags. Once renowned for storing laundry, the laundrette bag got a well deserved makeover with the checked skate shoes and oversized clutch being favourites of mine. Who knew that the crackly, plastic checked laundry bag print could look so chic. If its good enough for the front cover of Vogue then it is definitely good enough for me. 

Since the Céline autumn/winter '13 fashion show this check print has been scattered across the high street with the likes of Zara, ASOS and Topshop providing great copies. If you don't want to break the bank then the high street is definitely the place to head to stay on trend this season. 

Are you a fan of the revamped laundry bag check print or is it a trend you will be over looking this season? I would love to know your thoughts and whether you like this 'What's In Her Wardrobe' look.

  31. I love the checker/plaid cross over print for the winter and fall! There is something so cozy about it, just like there is something light and airy about flower print for spring! I also think the length of this dress is very chic, quite mature
