When we talk about Checks & plaids, it always resembles with either a picnic table cloth or a bring 9-5 desk job. However, the plaids & checks are one of the best prints. This fall the plaids were in trend, with monsoon rapidly coming our way it is time to pack all the whites & bright in the trunk & bring out the more neutral tones in attire. Checks & plaids can be one of the best options for the transition of summer’s end. The boxy plaids & oversized slouchy jacket in plaids & Prince of Wales plaids for the classic affairs.
The year 2017 opened with Chanel’s exotic runway show, in it the very first piece was signature Chanel look of tweed jacket & skirt. It had a melange look of checks, rather big checks. A very simple us of checks in a simplest classic piece.
The other piece from Chanel’s collection is completely contradicting to the previous, a rather retro vibe giving notch collar jacket with large plaid print on it in neon colours. A complete contemporary dress, sheer skirt, paired with a beige jacket with Neon pink & green light like plaids. This one is more on the note of casual & art inspired. The sleeve ruffle detailing & double breasted buttons at the front closure are the emphasising feature apart from the bold plaids. To match with the whole look, a cap, kind of baseball cap with similar plaids are used as an accessory. It is giving a whole look a cool vibe.
While there are plain one on one plaids, the geometric plaids are more eye catchy, this piece of Tibi’s an American brand is a sure win at the cutest office wear. A co-Ord of skirt & coat with grey plaid fabric & white knitted T-shirt paired with black stockings.
A completely different approach to checks is shown in the above piece, a deconstructed checked coat with the use of abstract wide checks paired with plain black pants &platform heels, a white t-shirt inside the coat. The belt around the coat waist is the main attraction of the attire. The look is kept very basic, however minute details like frayed edges at hem, the big buckled belt & wide checked print is bringing life to the look.
While all the above-showcased looks are more on the dull side, this one with all the soft hues is justifying its position in spring 2017’s collection. However many people see it as a table cloth or picnic napkin, even when I look down right now I’m wearing an exact same checked shirt with same colours, and it is looking fabulous because of its print. Here showcased dress is a beautiful silhouette a very feminine and easy to go dress can be paired with Espadrilles. Will give a perfect note to Yet going on summer vibe.
