There’s one trend that seems to come back every Autumn Winter. And I for one can’t seem to get enough of it! I’m beyond obsessed with check print right now , even if it makes me sound boring and basic, as this print is everywhere this year. But it can often be difficult to style for a cute look without looking like a history teacher, or like a knockoff version of Cher from Clueless, but we think we may have just cracked the code with some of these pieces!
I just need a minute to gush about one of my favourite pieces we have in stock this year, so I’m going to get it over with now! It’s confession time: I can’t stop thinking about this beige check print mini skirt from Only! This is definitely something that I know I’ll be wearing for years, and honestly, I’m not even mad! The asymmetric style adds a modern twist that this skirt needs while the gold buttons add a chic look. How cute would this skirt be styled with a white knit jumper to dress it down for a more casual look and white knee high boots for an on-trend 70’s feel?
Not a skirt girl? Good think we were able to bag the print of the season on a pair of shorts as well! These black woven houndstooth shorts are perfect for a dressier look, as well as being ideal for showing off those pins! The fitted style is always flattering and accentuates the curves, while the high waisted style and belted detail adds shape and definition to the waist. We love these shorts paired with a white t-shirt for a more relaxed look, or with a white satin cami top for a more formal look, the contrasting textures would also add more interest here. Want to really dress this one up? Pair with a black blazer!
Speaking of blazers, this beige check one is one of our current faves! We can see it becoming a real Autumn/Winter staple! If you’re going for a dressier look you can pair this one with a sleek white blouse and black jeans, allowing the blazer to be the statement piece of the outfit. Alternatively you can style with a loose fit white t-shirt and blue jeans for a more relaxed, casual look!
Can we talk about check print without talking about the iconic check shirt? Of course not! This is another style staple all year round, but in particular when it comes to Autumn winter! It always adds interest to a simple outfit such as a tshirt and jeans and is perfect for layering, adding that extra touch of comfort and warmth.
This check coat is a current staff favourite and I’m sure you can see why! Again, the print adds a bit of interest to your outfit while also adding the perfect dressy touch to a casual outfit, this is the ideal coat to bring you from day to night! The minimalistic colours will go with any outfit, allowing you to add a pop of colour with a fun, bright handbag or shoes.
Need to add a touch of fun with a plain, simple outfit? You can do this with a check print scarf! This is another item that’s perfect for layering, as well as adding interest (and not to mention that all important warmth!) to your outfit! It allows you to go for a simple, understated outfit while still looking cute!
