Check Mate

In the cooler months, our biggest style challenge can be trying to stay warm, comfortable and très chic. Let’s face it, frumpy clothing feels great to wear, but it can be an eye-sore and unflattering to your figure.

This season, our favourite checquered fabrics, from houndstooth to tweed, are back by popular demand and it’s not hard to see why. Adding this textured print to your outfit can make it instantly more luxurious and fashionable, all while keeping you toasty warm.

Traditionally, these chequered fabrics were reserved for scarves, hats and coats. Fast forward to now, however, and we are seeing them in skirts, trousers and even hair accessories.

Interested in wearing checquered pants? Look for a proportionate fit that complements you. Try slim fit or straight leg pants.

You also want to avoid unnecessary layers, so make sure every accessory is functional and adds to the aesthetic of your look.

These prints also work with a variety of colous from jewel to earthy tones. Mustard and mauve are particularly big this season, so watch out for these trending hues.
