No print says autumn quite like checks. Forever evoking the cosiness of the season with its oh-so-familiar patterns, checks in any form are a seasonal essential. Couple a rich palette inspired by nature with the timeless checks and top it all off with contemporary fits and finishing touches, and you’ve got our fail-safe winter look.
This season, we’ll take our checks with a side of, well, checks. Mixed patterns are brought together with an autumnal palette featuring rich greens, navy tones and a pop of yellow. In three key pieces there’s plenty of ways you can incorporate checks into your style, so start making a space in your wardrobe and prepare to mentally pair each of these checked wonders with your existing favourites…
Este Check Shirt
Just when we thought we couldn’t love our best-selling shirt more, this must-have popover has received a new season makeover. From an understated cotton shirt to a print clash, the relaxed separate features two contrasting check patterns.
A loose fit, autumnal palette and, of course, check patterns, are a perfect match. For the ultimate lazy Sunday outfit, pair with favourite denim and flats.
Este Check Tie Waist Dress
The same mixed checks lend their eye-catching finish to this fuss-free mid-length shirt dress, which we’ll be styling a multitude of ways throughout the season. A flattering fit includes a tie waist cinching in a draped, light silhouette, adding a casual touch to the long shirt dress.
From styling the piece with flats for work to layering it over jeans or leggings for an effortless approach to layering, this is one multi-tasking shirt dress.
The dream companion to your favourite knitwear is a casual skirt covered in – what else – mixed checks. Coupled with a tied waist for a sporty finish, the relaxed skirt is an off-duty dream. The wrap front pairs with the tie waist for a flattering finish.
Simply add chunky leather boots and your cosiest jumper for everyday winter style.
