Hope you guys are all o.k. Since August I have been scrolling through my Pinterest (have a butchers at ours here) and was seeing so much Prince of Wales check that by the time it came to September and I was limbering up to kick start my Autumn Wardrobe, I had started to get checked print fatigue!. I had seen so much of it that I am now sick of it. Most of the prints are in this grey and black and when you already have a grey blazer, a black and grey jacquard blazer, I ask myself do I really need another grey and black blazer?? It would not be in-keeping of my capsule wardrobe ethos to buy something I clearly don’t need just because its in ‘Fashurn!!’
What I have been looking, at is a more camel base check, similar to Burberry’s choice for this season which could really freshen up my wardrobe and be super versatile. Then comes price “how much can I afford” or more “how much am I willing to pay?”. Imagine my excitement when a Bloggers Pic (KatesCloset.uk) caught my eye, she was wearing a grey and black check from a brand I had not heard of…… Bershka. I went online and was so pleased to see some really nice pieces at a affordable price. I took a look at the blazer and low and behold they had it in a camel check for only £25.99 Bargain!. I bought it instantly, and I received it a day later… RESULT!.
The Masculine Blazer from Bershka really is very good quality and is fully lined which for £25.99 you are really getting a lot for your coin. I chose this one in the medium as I wanted a more structured fit,and to steer away from the more over sized silhouette. It has these two darts down the front which really helps to accentuate your waist, which is really flattening. Introducing more camel colours has breathed new life into my wardrobe and I am looking forward to styling this with other items. I would really recommend having a look at Bershka if you are thinking of picking up some great items for Autumn. I thought I would incorporate a bit of lady of the manor meet disco diva with the kick flare trouser!. The Cashmere Polar neck was a bargain from Marks and Spencer in the Sale back in March and the black flared trousers are from Mango. I finished the look with a simple pair of sock boots from ZARA.
Take a look at some others that I found below.
