A year after buying mine, I’m starting to get the hang of it
Checks are very much in this season. This dress, for instance, is by Ganni, which all the cool girls are wearing, and it’s in the shops now. The jacket I’m wearing isn’t in the shops because I bought it from Topshop in August last year, when check blazers were just becoming a thing. So it’s technically three seasons old, although Topshop has several similar styles this season, including a navy windowpane number for £65, which I would be tempted by if I didn’t already have this one.
Although it’s well over a year old, I still think of this as my New Check Blazer. Partly because I swear a year zooms by in about five seconds – dry cleaning the curtains is only one of many jobs that have been on my to-do list for much longer than this blazer has been in my wardrobe – and partly because I am only now getting into the swing of wearing it.
