This season you can embrace them in every size, from the pretty small to all out checkerboard. Try a tone-on-tone fabric for a subtle office look and a contrast print for a night on the town! For your shirt and trousers, the best way to wear checks is with solid colours.
In the past, bold colour was used to give your look an accent, but now it’s taken centre stage. Give your wardrobe a pop of colour with a bright yellow or a deep purple fabric for your shirt or trouser. These colours have been all over the runways and offer the perfect summer highlight. While purple works for a paired down evening look, yellow is your go-to day colour.
The way to carry this off is the same colour, or shades of the same for your shirt and trouser. To ace the look, make sure your accessories – belt, socks, shoes also work with the same hue.
This season it’s all about a subtle salmon pink that works for both shirts and trousers. The beauty of this colour is that it works for all occasions – office, cocktails and formal dinners — it’s a definite go-to this season.
