October is coming to a close, and although you’re probably busy planning your outfits for Halloween and deciding on which parties to attend, the gradual drop in temperature is telling us that it’s time to start thinking about what to wear in the upcoming cold weather season.
Though there are many fabulous trends coming up this Fall/Winter 2017, we suggest you begin with the checked pattern as it’s very versatile and will mix easily with your current wardrobe during the transitional weather period. What’s better? This fall, plaids and checks can not only be found on the heavily trending double breasted blazers, but also on everything else from coat to dresses, jumpers, skirts, and even belts. Scroll down to find some of our favourite pieces.
Rosie Assoulin is known for her creative and feminine takes on classic tailoring, and this wool jacket — made from double-faced wool in a Glen plaid — is a beautiful example. It combines a relatively classic design on the right side, with a looser, draped version on the left, and is finished off with grosgrain ties to define the waist.

This fall, instead of going for the usual 90s grunge, designers are opting for 1970s-inspired suit designs. Joseph has made a strong case with these cream, black, red and blue Prince of Wales-checked Ferrandi trousers, which sit high on the waist and fall into wide legs that neatly hit at the ankles.
