This week I have been challenged by Voucher Codes to showcase one of the key trends for this Autumn/Winter by putting together three outfits that prove you can be 'in fashion' on a budget! What a perfect challenge for me, since a) I'm supposed to be saving up ready to move out and b) I still haven't quite escaped from my student mindset where spending more than £50 on an item of clothing makes me physically wince. I chose the 'Flannel Checks' trend and was given a budget of £80 to create three outfits mixing and matching with staple items I already own.

As far as I'm concerned, no good Autumn/Winter wardrobe would be truly complete without a few plaid items - the pattern just screams cozy layered outfits to be worn when the weather starts to cool. I also like how versatile it is, an outfit featuring checks can be anything from girly to smart to grunge - there's something for everyone and every occasion!

Look number one is what I would term Back to School chic - its very Clueless! I absolutely adore this flannel check skirt from Matalan, and by craftily using a discount code from the Voucher Codes women's fashion section I was able to purchase the skirt (plus click and collect delivery) for the totally bargain price of just under £12! By going for an A-line rather than skater fit the skirt is saved from looking too Year 11 uniform and its the perfect length to wear with thick tights and chunky boots.
