How To Style This Thing: Prada Checked Blazerby Team Yoyokulala
How did a checked anything become such a street style must-have? Is it the combined work of Gucci, Balenciaga, Prada and the unfading presence of Cher Horowitz and her legendary yellow checked skirt suit? We could write an essay on the steadfast appeal of checks – but we’re not going to. Instead, we’re going to show you how to style this little orange number from Prada. (Well, we’re mainly seeing orange, everything else is just noise.)
It’s not so much that don’t-give-a-flipping-fly check Yoyo wore to Paris Fashion Week. This one’s a little quirkier, a little more sorority girl. Italian street style royalty Giovanna Battaglia wore her checked Prada blazer with a matching skirt, but if that’s too much colour in one look for you, straight-leg jeans in a vintage wash never failed anybody. We threw on a velvet belt over the blazer and matching mules to give it a classier, night-time feel, but added a mini cross body just in case that fancy dinner turns into drinks with the usual suspects.
