NEW COLORS FOR FW17: RED CHECK

By Lakeisha Goedluck, October 12, 2017

From tartan to windowpane, whatever your preference, it’s always a solid idea to have a selection of check gear in your year-round wardrobe. For FW17, it’s all about red check threads — commonly associated with the lumberjack aesthetic, but a feature of catwalks from Givenchy and Versace to Balenciaga and Dries Van Noten back in January. Try layering up with a piece in the pattern to increase your steez this fall.

The trick to wearing a red check shirt is to capitalize on its boldness. So, to create a fit that’s striking but still harmonious, wear a graphic-print tee that incorporates the colors of your shirt. When it comes to your bottom half, go for relaxed trackies to counteract the more structured approach of your top half. Match your pants to your black T-shirt to keep your underlayer uniform and allow your shirt to fully stand out.

Accessories-wise, stick to the same color. Opt for a black fanny pack with red lettering to subtly reference your shirt’s red check print, but break the theme with your kicks. Go for white Reebok Workouts with a gum sole to avoid overdoing it and keep your look fresh. To finish, rock a pair of clear gold-framed glasses to add a preppy vibe to your red-check-lead get-up.
