Fashion week is in full swing, and one outerwear that we kept spotting on the most fashionable streetstyle stars is the versatile and neutral checked coat. See how they wore theirs, and check out the ones you should buy for yourself below:
#1: The trench
Do like Caroline Issa and get a neutral checked trench coat – it’ll be a timeless classic.
#2: A peek of colour
A neutral checked coat is also the perfect canvas to play around with hints of colour, like a pair of bright red pants.
#3: A short coat
If you’re afraid that a long coat might overwhelm your figure, follow the petite Miroslava Duma and don a shorter version.
#4: Elevate a simple outfit
A neutral checked coat can instantly make a simple white shirt plus jeans combo look more polished and put together.
#5: With a newsboy cap
To kill two trends with one stone, be like Anna Dello Russo and wear your neutral checked coat with a newsboy cap.
