Thrift Inspiration, The Square Route Way-According to Vogue!!

Hi everyone! Now October is here, so is the onset of traditional British weather-wet, cold, windy, intermittently sunny and if we're lucky dry and not too nippy!

It's definitely warmer jacket weather and according to Vogue's catwalk edit for Autumn/Winter 13, 'The Square Route'- that is another pseudonym for all things plaid, tartan, checked and weaved into these said patterns is definitely the way to go this season.

Last season saw monochrome as a key look but this season all plaid colours are go-and into anything from coats to jackets to gowns to dresses to skirts to trousers!!

In Spring I acquired a couple of jackets that sit very nicely for this Autumn. My first jacket is a pure wool tweed vintage jacket which my mum brought from South Africa which had been her sisters:

Perfect for wearing with a roll neck jumper and boot flare jeans this will keep me stylish and cosy this Autumn:

 My second acquisition was this lovely houndstooth indigo blue and cream jacket by Jaeger which I picked up in my local British Heart Foundation charity shop for just £8.99:

I love the dark blue colour, it really is perfect with indigo jeans and the fringing around the lapels, cuffs and hem of the jacket is so Chanel-esque.

It always pays to nab bargains all year round even if they're not for the season you're currently in. Thrifting is a really cheap and accessible way to find bargains, such as coats and boots in the heart of summer and summer dresses when it's freezing cold winter!

What style of jackets will you be wearing this season? Will tartans and plaids feature in your wardrobe or are you hunting for leather or leopardprint?

I adore plaids, tartans and houndstooth prints for fall! They just feel perfectly cozy! Love your two jackets!

If you've read my post today you'll already know I'm not a fan (on me!) I know you'll look wonderful in both jackets as that tailored style with your lovely legs encased in jeans suit you so well! xxx

Hi Sharon,

First time stopping by and I agree with you, recycling and thrifty styling cannot be topped. I just aquired three great pieces from charity shops in Shirley, Birmingham, a great place to find that must have plaid or tarten piece without breaking the bank and helping to save landfill at the same time.

You are right - plaids and checks in general are everywhere this season. I like the autumnal shades of your vintage jacket. I'm on the look-out for something in houndstooth.

I like that jaeger jacket a lot! I have a turquoise and black tartan skirt that I love so I will be digging that out this year. Jacket wise I'm on a budget this year but luckily have a chanel-ish style jacket that I am going to use xx
