Check Paperbag Waist Grey Women's TrousersAs soon as the colder weather hits, I tend to retreat to a world of block colours.  Bye prints!  However, having seen endless streams of strikingly bold prints hitting shops and runways alike, I've been persuaded to at least dip my toe into the pool of prints this Autumn. If, like me, you go all out with florals/stripes/gingham in summer, and then regress to only monochrome looks from September onwards, now is the time to experiment a little.  Just a tiny bit.  To start with?  Heritage Check.  It's bold and yet subtle if wanted, pretty yet powerful and ideal for wearing from desk-to-date, and day-to-night!

If a full-on blazer doesn't sit comfortably with you (yet), the next best option is to opt for trousers; look for a heritage fabric with contemporary silhouette.  Honestly?  They're popping up everywhere you look right now, and so won't be hard to find - but I've linked a few below anyway!  Not gonna lie, I'm loving the country vibe that heritage checks offer, it's so much fun to counteract with contemporary pieces, like this ruffle shirt (or other classic-but-statement shirts shared last month!) and maroon fur sandals.  It's because of this the print makes an ideal choice for taking from desk-to-date, and from day-to-night; checks blend in with their surroundings, depending on how you style them.  I've been crushing on so many street style looks lately, with the very top of the list being identical trousers to these paired with fishnet socks and patent loafers.  Dreamy!
