INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

HOW TO WORK WITH HERITAGE CHECKS

By Joanna Kyte, 22 November 2017

This year’s coat hotlist is in, featuring amped-up puffers, coloured faux fur and, now, a wealth of heritage checks. Debuted first on the AW17 catwalks and then adopted by our very own ASOS Insider Anna, these longline babies are ruling the season. Get inspired…

It's a known thing that Japanese brand Sacai specialises in bringing fresh twists to classic prints, so it came as no surprise that switching up the styling of heritage checks was high on the designer’s agenda. Here, the trick is all about layering: mix a fuzz-lined puffer jacket with an OG patterned midi coat (yep, believe) and tie the look up with a pair of statement heeled boots.

First inspiration pin-up ticked – here’s your second. When ASOS Insider Anna picked out a neutral-hued plaid jacket for autumn, she also pulled out a colourful style trick to help up her seasonal game. Take a lemon roll-neck jumper and tuck it into a vinyl mini skirt before braving the chill with a pair of party-ready leopard-print sandals.
