The Check Trend – The Street Style Edit

February is here which means one more month until Spring 2018 officially starts! Spring is stereotypically the time of year when we decide to clear out our wardrobe: dispose of those pieces you know you won’t wear again, and start looking for new acquisitions. But wait! Don’t take your check print pieces to the charity shop just yet: checks, stripes, and tartan WILL be back in A/W 18/19. Harper and Black have put together a few street style inspirations for you to restyle your old check print pieces from years gone by.

Check blazers item to have for this trend. For a Harper-style lover, this is the ideal piece to elevate a simple outfit composed of dark jeans and a white slogan t-shirt or even a shirt. The check blazer can also be used as a colour injection depending on its colour-way. An alternative to the blazer is a classic winter coat, perfect for the cold nights. Check coats have also been in trend for the past few seasons, so it is not a bad idea to keep investing in some unique pieces to take you through next winter.

Coordinating pieces are the best! They will take the stress out of your morning routine when you can’t decide what to wear for work. This beautiful black and white skirt and blazer check combination are so versatile. Wear it together for a corporate look, adding a white blouse or even a colourful top to break up the monochrome palette. Obviously, the pieces can also be worn separately, which will duplicate the number of outfits in your wardrobe. In addition, you can style the two-piece up with some black stiletto pumps, or down with black combat boots. Always a win-win situation!

If you would like to try a different approach to your style, grab that check blouse that you were too afraid to wear last season. Off-the-shoulder outfits are set to return too, therefore make sure to highlight your colour bones for a glowing look. For a casual, effortless look wear your check blouse open over a basic outfit.

Skirts are an essential for most of us. There are several types of check/ striped or tweed print/ weaves to be worn and multiple in different colour-ways to wear them in. During the colder days pair your favourite skirt with a colourful jumper, wear it over the skirt for an editorial look.
