Working seamlessly with nearly everything in your wardrobe, this classic winter print is a seasonal essential. Being to winter what florals are to summer, checks channel a sense of heritage – think tartans from Scottish clans and the signature motifs of legacy brands. But that doesn’t mean your look has to be predictable. Instead, add a little playfulness; double up on the print, or clash accessories to create a modern statement.
When mismatching prints, two is the magic number. Whether you opt for spliced and stitched checked garments, or do the double with bags, shoes or accessories, add a hint of rebellion to this classic look.
Your trusted black cashmere roll neck is the perfect foil for this reinvented tartan skirt. Finish with your favourite winter ankle boots and gold hoops to inject the requisite va-va-voom.
Maximise your ROI and opt for this print in neutral shades – it’s also the perfect way to nail this season’s tonal look. Dig out seasonal chocolate coloured jackets and boots for an eminently wearable ensemble.
Much like a Breton top, a checked blouse is a real off-duty perennial, guaranteed to clock up closet mileage. Pair with high-waisted jeans, and add a subtle clash with a mac coat lining or trim for the final flourish.
