3 WAYS TO WEAR HERITAGE CHECKS

By Maybelle Morgan, October 2, 2017

Newsflash: florals are taking a back seat as we nosedive straight into fall. Right now, it's all about earthy heritage checks to bring some print power to your FW17 outfits. And the best part? It's a square dance everyone can take part in. Check out these three different ways to wear it...

Matchy matchy

Cash your checks in style like model Laetitia by doubling up on the print. For a true seasonal win, opt for a houndstooth trench coat and match with tailored pants in light checks. A zip-up tracksuit and skate sneaks tone down the Sherlock Holmes vibes and adds a cool street-style look instead.

Top that

If a fall walk in the countryside isn't your thing, revamp your heritage checks with a pop of punky color. Artist Al Ly makes them current with this purple high-neck top, before amping up the chic with wide-leg pants and technical sneaks. Finish off with a wow-worthy red patent trench coat and you've got yourself a statement weekend win.

Getting skirty

For a subtle dose of the trend? Do it like ASOS Insider Barbara and channel Cher Horowitz by going Clueless with your skirt, like this wool mini number with a dreamy pearl trim. Pair it with a historical funnel-neck blouse, but avoid going too preppy by picking eclectic accessories. Think a beret and rose puffer jacket for the cutesy factor, and varsity sneaks plus sports-tipped socks for a hint of vintage style.
