4 Ways to Wear Checks this Autumn

by Chloe Wilshere, Content Creator

It’s hard to remember a time when checks didn’t dominate our wardrobes.

A pattern that switches up with the changing seasons, gingham is our go-to during the summer months, but as autumn rolls round it’s micro-checks, dogtooth and plaid prints that really check the box.

We’ve rounded up four different ways to wear yours for some serious checks appeal, whatever your style or plans this autumn.

Black dogtooth button jacket and skirt   White frill collar long puff sleeve shirt   Black leather penny loafers   White cable frill trim socks  Black wool blend beret   Black faux croc shoulder bag   Gold circle drop earrings

1. Upper East Side

Ever since the Gossip Girl reboot, we’ve all been obsessed with getting that Upper East Side look, which naturally relies on dogtooth checks and chic co-ords.

Say hello to the must-have bouclé dogtooth jacket and mini skirt that Blair Waldorf would totally envy. Make like the Manhattan set by styling the duo with a statement collar blouse, black chunky loafers, and of course, who could forget the all-important beret?s

2. Nostalgic Glow (1)

Let us introduce you to your new favourite layer this autumn: the off-white checked shacket. It’s the kind you’ll find yourself living in, given that it goes with just about everything.

A pop of pink will really bring the plaid to life – we’re thinking this pink slogan jumper loved by both us and autumn ambassador Emily Atack. Keep the rest of your styling tonal by pairing it with off-white baggy fit jeans, white chunky trainers and a pale pink ‘90s nylon shoulder bag.

Go head-to-tonal by styling it with our trending high-neck zip jumper, buckle-detail biker bootss and a cream slouchy shoulder bag. When the temperature really drops, add some sheer tights and wrap up with a beanie to make it even more autumn approved.
