Check That

Whether you like it or not, checks and stripes are becoming the new hip thing. These “conservative” prints are popping up in a variety of shapes and forms at all of your go-to shops and boutiques. From two-piece separates, to outerwear and swimwear, they are everywhere. If you are not sold on these classic patterns, rather than avoiding this trend entirely, mix ’em into your weekday attire with the garments that you feel your best in.


Chic checked trousers


When I came across a pair of high-waisted navy and off-white checked trousers, my imagination began to run wild with outfit ideas. Wear them with a boxy crop top, a body-suit and blazer, an evening shirt, or v-neck and completely transform the look from the previous wear. Going for an ultra chic approach this time around, I decided to rock these pants with a glamorous evening shirt. Although previously styled on KK and GG, I knew this peplum top would go so well I could not resist wearing it again. To change it up a tad, I further synched in the waist with a pearl belt and hung a pearl necklace around my neck. Finally, to polish off the ensemble, I went for a nude pump –  anything to help make my legs look longer!

I never really considered chripes to be my fashion style, but they’re growing on me very quickly. I used to associate these patterns with preppy ensembles. But by incorporating your glitzy jewels, or your favorite funky top, you really can stay true to your own style with whatever pattern you wear. Are you ready to step out of the box the next time you shop?!
