MMM: A checked coat = instant wardrobe updater

This is one of those trends that you knew was coming. Stella McCartney, Celine and Ganni all created covetable check coats for Winter.

Full disclosure, I am NOT a checks kind of a girl. Anything tartan? No thanks.

But grid coats have become the street stylista’s go-to this season, probably more so than pink.

This Zara one is pretty much the ultimate if you like the look. Perfect for wearing to work, over jeans and for generally making a statement this season.

Plus, it’s a great one for every age.

    I’m with you on the tartan so I’ve been struggling with these coats…..especially the Zara one because I freaking love it!! How, after slagging off tartan on the blog for months, can I explain buying a whole coat made of the stuff?! xx
