what's the least scary way of wearing check pattern?
I'm not usually the most adventurous with my style, but I'd love some advice on how to wear check.First it was boyfriend jeans, oversized shirts and slouchy sweaters, and now it seems there's no stopping womenswear from looking to the boyfriend's wardrobe for inspiration.
Bold, graphic checkerboard prints were a statement for spring/summer 2013 at Louis Vuitton, while tartan takes over at Versace and Saint Laurent for autumn/winter 2013. Whether you opt for a large or small check, geometric or diagonal, or even a more feminine delicate pastel, there is a check for everyone.
Rarely short of the mark, Zara has invested heavily in this trend for the coming season and the new collection features everything from lumberjack-inspired checkered shirts (1 €39.95) to check mini-skirts (2 €27.95) for a touch of punk.
Over at Asos, you'll find a perfectly tailored pair of check trousers (3 €52.05), which will take you from the boardroom to the dancefloor via a simple change of accessories.
While M&S's monochrome checkered bag from its Limited Edition collection would be a chic addition to any wardrobe (4 €47.50).
