Spring is upon us (even if the snow is falling outside) and that means it’s time to freshen up the old wardrobe. When creating a new wardrobe it’s important to have a few classic fashion staples you can always turn to and what’s more of a classic than the humble check print. It’s been around and stuck around for decades and it can be worn any time of year. Gingham, plaid and block check prints are set to be huge this season. This might remind you of your Grandmas old table clothes but don’t worry. There’s a new way to wear the print. See what we’re talking about below…
Work It Out
Give your office go-to boxy blazer and pencil skirt combo new life by opting for a checkered print. Keep the look interesting with a fringe sling bag and a pair of trendy sneakers.
Colour Me Bright
For the adventurous ones, try wearing a vibrant checkered skirt with an equally bold cable knit sweater. Keep the look fun and youthful by accessorizing with a neon heel and a geometric mini bag for a modern spin on ladylike dressing.
Channel your inner equestrian with a bright checkered mini dress cinched with a belt and worn with knee-high block heeled boots. Finish it off with a classic saddle bag to complement the entire look.
Not one for head-to-toe checks? Incorporate checkered prints into your wardrobe in little ways. Mix and match fabrics and add layers with a checkered deconstructed skirt underneath a denim skirt. A colour block trench gives the casual print the polish it needs.
Make a Statement
A checkered calf-length skirt looks modern when worn with an oversized statement sweater and calf flat boots. Tote a monogram bag for a little bit of pattern contrast.
