Get the look from just £8.

Acne’s oversized, brightly coloured chequered scarf was wrapped around the neck of nearly every woman in East London, adding a much-needed pop of colour to the greyest season in the city.

Acne created a variety of colour combinations of the oversized plaid scarf, yet this rainbow version quickly became a must-buy item in 2021 and beyond.

But why did the multicoloured chunky checkered scarf become everyone’s favourite?

The answer is simple: it makes a stylishly colourful statement. It brings a splash of eye-catching colour to any basic fall ensemble.

I popped into Primark the other day and lo and behold, I saw an incredible lookalike for just £8. Since then, I’ve spotted many more that give the same bright, pop of colour for way less.

I’ve gathered a list of high-street dupes that will elevate any winter coat—from Primark, Monki, Etsy and more.
