The checked trousers
The second post from the autumn essentials series represents a very trendy wave this season – checks. This kind of pattern is in all fashion magazines, blogs and trendy Instagram feeds. Personally, I was never into this style as I find it as not really suitable for the rest of my closet choices. But recently I decided to try and integrate it in my daily style and found the best match in Zara. These checked trousers are mid-calf length, which is really my favorite, especially when paired with sneakers. I also find the colder colours such as gray and dark blue to better match the rest of my clothes in comparison to the warmer ones like beige and brown. I am also on the hunt for a nice checked skirt but I still haven’t found anything that matches my needs. Let me know if you have any nice recommendations!
The polo shirt
I decided to pair the checked trousers with a simple yet really elegant Lacoste polo shirt in dark blue*. The design is timeless and goes great with both elegant as well as more casual outfits. Actually, I picked a more shirt-like fabric, which makes the t-shirt look even more elegant. So, I can style it both with jeans as well as with a suit. How cool is this!
You are probably familiar with my love for raincoats (see here) as I find them super stylish and easy to combine with the rest of my clothes. Plus. the white one holds a very special place in my heart as it has served me so well in the rainy and windy times in the Netherlands, which was basically 90% of the time. Especially when I had to bike in the rain… So, if you live in a place where fall is pretty rainy, then I definitely recommend to get a good raincoat. The one I’m wearing in the photos is from Zara a few years back and is shorter but that’s why it goes great with the pants!
By now you should know how much I love sneakers, it is a sickness of mine, I would say! 😀 So, unsurprisingly, I got yet another pair that I fell in love with since the moment I saw them in the beginning of the year in Amsterdam. The Adidas Originals Sambarose in white* has honestly been in my thoughts ever since and I can’t express how happy I am to finally have them! I would definitely recommend to get leather sneakers for the fall season as it usually rains, the streets can get dirtier, hence your shoes will get dirty. Especially if you’re wearing white shoes, if they can’t be cleaned easily, then you would probably end up not wearing them.. No one likes messy shoes!
