Bold and beautiful, larger than life, checks are on trend and going global in the coming autumn/winter 2017 collections. Front runner of the trend is Balmain giving a modern feel to the classic black and white houndstooth.
Dialling up the impact, Balmain also showed some strong attitude with bold coloured plaids.
Calvin Klein kept up the checked pace with this immaculately tailored trouser suit. Watch out for more of the drift to the trouser suit – think Katherine Hepburn et al.
Stella McCartney came through with emphasis on the womanly waist. Polished and structured, this modern style is classically feminine.
Tory Burch creates a mix and match with this combination of a free spirited knit and checked trouser. It’s flamboyant and inspiringly upbeat.
Checks allow you to play with a tone and match it up to create an original look that you claim as yours. It’s all about comfort and style as shown here with another Tory Burch combo.
If you don’t fancy going all the way, you can rely on a Burberry scarf to transform a tailored coat or leather jacket or simply add another layer. A checked scarf will give you that sophisticated edge.
Checks are on their way to being this season’s must haves. Plaid, tartan, houndstooth, Prince of Wales or a simple check, the trend is cool and very grown up. Time to check in.
