An increasingly encroaching dusk, coupled with noticeable breath hanging in the air when we force ourselves from bed in the morning, means it’s finally time to retire those light and airy summer prints and fabrics in favour of heavier Autumnal fare. Our reluctance to wave goodbye to the summer is slightly alleviated by all the thrill of winter dressing; the luxurious swirl of heavy fabrics about our ankles, the thick twill of coats between our frost-touched fingers. Of course, velvet and military-inspired clothing are on everyone’s wish list this season but the true AW hero is the humble check pattern, a firm fixture on the catwalks year after year.
This year, we fell for tartan as our print of choice. Inspired by the rugged wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, this season the emphasis is on earthy tones; on greens and browns, burnt rusts and subtle golds all weaved together. As suitable for the office as it is for weekend wear, checks can be both classic and edgy depending upon what they are paired with. With four different ways to wear the trend below, we’ve got you covered!
