These days, it’s all about checks and plaid and they are making a comeback on the Spring/Summer 2018 catwalks. Fashion houses like Fendi and Burberry have managed to make a compelling case for these prints with a fresh new twist, so much so that Gigi Hadid and even the Duchess Kate Middleton have jumped on the bandwagon. If you’re unsure of how to incorporate these classic patterns into your wardrobe, here are 5 pieces to amp your style factor.

Fendi Midi Skirt

Nothing says demure quite like a cotton plaid midi skirt flounced at the hem and complete with cute yellow drawstrings at the waist. Exuding a slight vintage vibe, it’s flirty without being overly conservative and goes great with your kitten or espadrille heels for that extra feminine charm.

Burberry Plastic Shopper with Vintage Check Pouch

Burberry gives fashion fusion a unique twist with a bag that’s a sure conversation starter. Its leather-wrapped chain handle is amalgamated with transparent plastic which shields and proudly displays a cotton drawcord pouch that is decked out in their signature checks. This bag is a true masterpiece of form and function.

Check VS Logo Cap by Versus Versace

Join the checks fad with Versus’ monochromatic logo cap. Emblazoned with the Versus logo, this otherwise pure black cap is instantly recognisable, yet without being too over the top.  Wearing the right cap can do wonders for your street style.

Vans Monochrome Checkered Sneakers

Rock your kicks just like Brooklyn Beckham and Justin Bieber with Vans’ ever-popular classic black and white checkered sneakers to adapt to this season’s pattern of choice. Breathing new life into their Old Skool range by incorporating the ‘mix check’ design, it’s time to be less boring with your footwear.

Gucci Embroidered Plaid Oversize Shirt

Gucci’s oversized plaid shirt featuring floral embroidery with multicoloured sequins takes grunge to an elevated level. With blue, yellow and crystal trims down the front and on the cuffs, this wool shirt is the right upscale shirt you’re looking for.
