Dear Fabbers,
Recently, I bought a checked jacket. Now, I found a pair of trousers in the same fabric (both from Escada). I like the trousers and I wanted to have the option to wear the jacket and the trousers together as a suit, or as separates.
I was trying to style the "suit" today, but when I look at the pictures, I think it might be too much of the pattern. I actually prefer the pieces as separates.
I styled the suit first with a royal blue silk pussy bow blouse and a matching bag.
I also tried with a black top and a black scarf and bag. This is my least favourite option. I think it looks a bit sad without colours.

I also tried the jacket over a column of royal blue. I have recently found this blue blouse, a HEWI for me because I like a column of colour and this blouse works perfectly with my older royal blue trousers. I like this outfit.

I styled the trousers also with a black jacket, a cream top and a colourful silk scarf.

What do you guys think about the checked pieces? Should I wear them as a suit or is it too much and unflattering on me?
Feedback and styling tips would be much appreciated.
Pictures will come in a minute.
