Check has had a revival this season elevating everyday looks with polished sophistication. The earthy hue will instantly slot into your autumnal wardrobe, mix and match it with anything from a denim-based look to a workwear outfit for season-ready appeal. It’s a wearable trend that offers a new take on power-dressing. Here i’ve picked out the key pieces to consider from the runway and the high street…

The Jacket

This is a style that high-end and low-end brands have nailed this season. Choose from an array of cuts, lapels, single or double breasted or sumptuous buttoning. A check jacket will certainly complete your look for modern sophistication. You can style your Autumn ensemble with washed out denim or coordinating trousers and a pair of ballet pumps to finish.

The Trousers

Numerous brands are making a strong case for check in AW17. A structured trouser in a classic check is a nod to the heritage influences that are all over the catwalk this season. With a check trouser you’ll exude contemporary cool with its sleek silhouette; ranging from high-waisted details, front-pleated accents, cropped or even straight leg cuts. If you want to keep things low-key, style yours like I did with a simple white tee. Here are a few of my personal highlights.

The Skirt

Don’t fancy wearing trousers? Opt for a skirt in classic check, a piece which has also made a comeback this season. They’re a perfect workwear wardrobe pick for a confident, feminine vibe. All you need to do is style it with a tucked in silk blouse or crisp shirt, block heels and a relaxed overcoat. Easy! These are some of my highlights…
