Check On It
If there’s one print to buy into this winter it’s the classic heritage check.
Burberry and Isabel Marant put it on coats; Vetements sent it out in the form of suits and asymmetrical skirts while Dries Van Noten employed the print onto blazers. This classic print was seen all over the tailoring scene, especially in Paris, with smart jackets and coats being the stand out items.
Since then we’ve been falling over checked blazers and long-line jackets all over the high street. From Mango’s feminine, cropped style nipped in at the waist to French Connection’s patchwork check number, there’s so much choice we guarantee you’ll find one that suits you.
Our top pick is the mannish style blazer; Zara has multiple options available, wear with boyfriend jeans and converse at the weekend for a cool, casual look. For a more polished look, team your oversized blazer with leather trousers, a smart blouse and pointed toe heels. A classic style with a statement edge. For more options see our gallery below.
A popular choice for city and office workers, The Prince of Wales Check was originally named the Glen Plaid until the Duke of Windsor, the then Price of Wales, popularized the print.
Equestrian in style, we cant enough of this quintessentially British trend.
Shrug off the tartan and start rifling through your dad’s office wear pronto!
