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.

Winter is my least favorite time of year for many reasons – days are shorter and apparently so is my creativity (although I don’t know if you could describe creativity as ‘short’, but neither can you call it ‘big’ or count the level of it so I will leave it like that), foggy days are not really getting me all inspired and ready for hard work. Not to mention seeing the 100 000th caramel coat or teddy coat outfit picture on Instagram. Don’t get me wrong, I hype about a good, classic coat but… come on!

So how can I make a difference, you may ask? Here are my 5 answers to that question, which are very easy to style and adapt to any wardrobe:

1. Croc-effect!

This trend is literally everywhere – from accessories like cute vintage bag and ankle length boots to… COATS. So why don’t try to level your winter look up with leather coat or pants patterned in croc? Extra easy to style – with that statement piece you don’t need much more than white shirt, girly pumps and straight-leg jeans.

2.Shearling coat

Just like croc-effect one, cute and interesting alternative to classic coat, and still extra easy to style – will work amazing with either your basic jumper and cowboy boots or something crazy, like sequins pants and platform boots.

 

 

 

 

33. Coloring

Winter doesn’t have to be all about blacks, beiges and whites. It looks cute, but not 20th day in the row, so choosing statement colors is a good way to get noticed in the crowd. If you don’t own any color in your clothes section, try with accessories – red lacquered heels or electric blue bag.

4. Faux Fur

Another statement piece that took 2018 by storm. At first I found it a little bit too extra, but I’m dying to try this trend now! You can create amazing Street Style inspired looks by breaking glamorous fur vibe with sporty pieces like sneakers or hoodie.

And funky sunglasses are a must accessory!

5. Oversized aviator

Wearing extra masculine or military-inspired coat is a must try this winter! Works extra flattering with flowy dresses and flared jeans and boots. Oversize it to add a bit of ‘my boyfriends jacket’ vibe.

Tip:You can find an amazing piece in second-hand shop!
