Check, just unlike any other (maybe except polka dots), is the most classic, basic and timeless pattern that should (if haven’t already) find its place in your wardrobe. And the right piece can serve you many looks for many years! So… what are the perfect checked clothes to put on your fashion investment list? How to style it to look amazing on streets or an event?

Checked suit 

It’s one of the basics of basics – you can wear it for many ways, separate it, wear it together for a perfectly tailored or oversized statement look. Checked blazer is veeery helpful in both layering and keeping it simple and checked trousers, either you prefer it flared or in a skinny edition, add some texture , paired with simple t-shirt and camel coat. Pairing the suit with trainers became the big trend, so if you prefer flats over heels, it’s not a problem anymore to add some sporty accent to ‘office’ look. Colorwise, sky is the limit!

Pencil skirt

Useful in the office, on the romantic day or casual drinks after work. Just like I mentioned above, checked pieces go really cute with sporty accents like trainers, but when it comes to pencil skirt, which can shorten silhouette a little bit, hoodie or sweatshirt with cute pumps and girly jewellery would be less ‘harmful’ option. ‘Blanket skirt’ is an amazing, daring variation, which caught my eyes sometime during the end of 2018. Paired with heeled sandals and flowy white shirt would look amazing!

Blouse

Flanell shirt (extra rich in fabric and oversized as a dress or jacket – tripple YES!) is the first thing I imagine, when I think about checked blouse, but let’s not limit ourselves! There’s so many styles and shapes! And the statement puffy or extra wide sleeve is a total MUST! It can add something interesting to casual denim day or neony-yellow skirt mood.

Coat or/and Jacket

Checked coats and jacket are the symbol of winter. They are basic, but can be worn as the ‘main-player’. They are mega-classy, so can be styled in many ways, as  – with jeans or suit (also checked to add street vibe), jumper and skirt, with another classic – black dress or coctail pop-pink mini, with heels or flats, combined with other patterns like snake print, strips, polka dots or totally plain materials. Oversized or glove-fit, bright or dark, all up to your liking.

Day 2: Good, So-so and amazing.

Chanel

Karl Lagerferd took inspiration from his beloved XVIII century and placed it in the beachy villa. The first looks were dominated with house’s signature hand-woven tweed, two piece dressuit, which in my opinion, were good, but… not very interesting and innovative. But I have to admit, the midis with high slits were cute! In the further part of show it was all but better – we could spot extra-wide hips cage dresses and firm shoulders, characteristic for XVIII, few princess cocktail dresses and another no-no for me – motorcycle jackets with tulle white skirts. Details, as always when it comes to Chanel, were outstanding. Amazing fabrics – silk and flowy organza, excellent feather work and  extremely detailed flower accents – some of them were real dried flowers dipped in resin! Final look (bridal) happened to be one-piece swimsuit embroiled with silver flower.

 

Armani Privé

The House’s big inspiration was Art Deco in movie industry and you could feel the this amazing pre-WWI artistic vibe just by looking at few first looks. The show was opened with amazingly tailored silver suit with characteristic for 1930’s hat. You couldn’t notice the touch of red in every single look. Strong shoulders, perfect tailoring, geometric prints, sequin trousers and lacquered pieces were just incredible. My definite favorite pieces were flowy kimono and red skirts and dresses covered in see-through violet fabric. And that deep neck jumpsuit – yes, please!

 

Givenchy

Clare Waight Keller focused on classic, smart yet leveled up look. Perfectly tailored blazer opened the show, paired with glow-fit latex tights, which broke the Haute Couture with new concept! The runway was dominated with black and occasionally popping neon pink, red and yellow. My attention was especially caught on amazing cape dress (one of the first looks) and latex thights in lace worn by Kaya. Cage yellow lace dress and latex hourglass red gown were icing on the cake colorwise. And big shout-out for a massive backpacks I mistaken as big bow wings looking only from front!
