INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
HOW TO WORK WITH HERITAGE CHECKS
By Joanna Kyte, 22 November 2017
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.
