All I am seeing at the moment is check. Check coats, check bags, check trousers, check skirts, check pinafores… Gingham took over the summer and its sister, check, is taking over the winter. To me ‘check’ consists of tartan, plaid, gingham etc… This is right, however, there are some small distinguishable differences between them. The main difference being, plaid is actually the fabric/cloth used for the garment, not the actual pattern design.
Anyway, to avoid confusion, I will stick with the word ‘check’ as a collective term for each different fabric.
I love how classic check looks. I feel like it touches on many periods of fashion history, such as the 90s. To me, the 90s highlights a perfect example of check. Mainly because of my all-time favourite movie, Clueless, features the iconic yellow tartan Dolce & Gabbana suit that Cher wears at the beginning. I am forever wishing my secondary school experience was as chic as Chers. The dreamy high-school-cool-girl style and overzealous colours just emulate the perfect 90s look.
I thought I would do a quick little post on my favourite check outfit of this month!
This outfit definitely helps me channel my inner cluelessness. The way sits on the mid-thigh and pinches in at the waist, creates a really girly preppy look. I also love the v-neck, it almost frames any necklace/jewelry you wear. This p
inafore has been popping up everywhere, and I have seen it styled in many ways. I think with the white high neck long-sleeve, gives it a uniform vibe. I went for bare legs, which is probably not ideal for winter time, but seeing as its 20 degrees one day and -15 degrees another, I thought it could work. The red faux suede aviator jacket accentuates the red checked detailing on the pinafore and really completes the look. I think it adds bulk and warmth to the look.
I wore this outfit into London one day when I went for afternoon tea at the Ham Yard Hotel. I did wear tights on this day as it was -15 degrees. I think, with tights, it would be perfect for work/a formal situation and then without tights, it gives you a totally different relaxed look.
Hope you enjoyed this lil post-
