THE GREY CHECKED JACKET

Re­write the rules with this ver­sa­tile outer­wear

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE STYLE -

For women who want to power up their look at work in an in­stant, the grey checked jacket is a blessing: It doesn’t pos­sess the sever­ity of its plain black coun­ter­part, yet it achieves the ef­fect of for­mal­ity all the same. How­ever, this cor­po­rate jacket is break­ing away from the hum­drum monotony of of­fice life, thanks to de­sign­ers who are putting a youth­ful spin to it. Louis Vuit­ton’s Ni­co­las Gh­esquière cut de­con­structed ver­sions last sea­son, and this fall, the likes of Alexan­der Wang and Stella McCart­ney fol­lowed suit with vari­a­tions that’ll make the jacket a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence on the streets. Layer a colour­ful var­sity sweater un­der a checked jacket for a quirky take on col­le­giate dress­ing.To switch things up fur­ther, opt for one that’s cut over­sized, then pair it with a sexy patent skirt for ex­tra swag­ger.
