The Checked Trend – The High Street Pieces We Love

Being fashionable on a budget probably never been so easy as it is right now. With so many high street brands producing great fashion for affordable prices. If you already follow us on Instgram you know that we have a passion for affordable fashion and we just don’t think dressing well should have to break he bank.

One of the biggest trends right now is unmistakable the checkered patterned trend and we have to admit, its one of our favorite trends at the moment. Last week we went a bit bananas doing a bit of a shopping trip/Haul and visited some of our favorite high street stores (and shopped a little online too) and we found some incredible pieces ranging from £8 to £79.

Twinning in two fabulous pieces from Primark. The Coat Emelie is wearing cost  £30 and the Skirt  Katrin is wearing costs £8.



Love pairing this mini skirt with a woolly jumper and once the temperatures are dropping, adding some tights or knee high boots.


This coat is such a bargain and although it’s a budget piece, this coat does not feel or look cheap! 



Let’s get neutural!


This gorgeous coat from H&M is combining the trend of neutrals and the checkered trend perfectly. Great quality and fit! £79.99 from H&M



One of the high street stores that are really getting it this season is Primark and they have a fantastic selection of  on trend coats in stores at the moment. Coat was £25 now on sale £15, what an absolute bargain.





We absolutely adore this structured mini dress in oversized dogtooth from UNIQUE21 purchased from (Probably Emelie’s favorite retailer, like EVER 🙂


Another red hot item from Primark (Primark is killing it this season!)


We are loving the combination of yellow tones and the checkered pattern, which gives off a very fresh and on trend look. Coat from Primark £30


Buying and throwing away clothes is detrimental to the environment but shopping on a budget does mean that you are able to stay fashionable without breaking the bank. We always try to find good quality items for affordable prices to eliminate the issue of buying and then after a few uses just throwing the items away. The best thing with these items  that we found is that we found they were actually really good quality which is fantastic when you take the super affordable price point in mind.

What’s your favorite autumnal trend? Let us know in the comments below 🙂


Until next time,
