If you're going to buy anything this month, make it this.
If we had to call one piece the item of 2019, it would be a checked blazer. It played a heavy part throughout last year and now it's continuing through to Spring/Summer 2020, too. We've spotted them on all our favourite street style stars from houndstooth to heritage and herringbone, any style goes as long as they're checked.
That said, there has been one blazer in particular that everyone from Emma Louise Connolly to Helen Anderson cannot stop wearing. Made to be worn with a dark berry lip, this check blazer is not like every other check blazer. Oh no, this check blazer has padded shoulders, a notch lapel, a two-button closure and a sharktooth pattern. At glance, this is the kind of blazer you could only imagine comes from the kind of designer you'd have to remortgage your house to own. However, after further expectation, it turns out this check blazer comes directly from an online retailer you've almost definitely already spent your entire paycheck in many times before. Well, prepare to do so again because ASOS has designed a check blazer so perfect, I think I'm dreaming.
The one in question is €59.95, but that hasn’t stopped it selling out faster than a One Direction reunion tour. In fact, I'm honestly shocked it hasn't sold out already. Never say never.
This is the one that's been all over your feed - and it's easy to see why. A loose-fit with lapel collar, a two-button closure and a refreshingly different sharktooth pattern. We're seeing it paired with everything from a hoodie and jeans to a band t-shirt and the matching trousers. (Yes, there are matching trousers!)
Sharktooth Dad Blazer, €80.91, ASOS
It comes in sizes 4 to 26 and in both a tall and curve fit. Although it’s slightly on the pricier side than my usual Instagram find, I'm pretty sure you'll wear it so many ways that it'll be more than worth the splurge. Oh, and while you're at it...you may as well get the matching trousers too.
