Check out the hot trend you might already own | Trending

From high end couture to high street fashion, checks are hot this season. Expect to see them on everything from coats to winter warming accessories. They look great paired with bold colors, but don’t be afraid to also wear them with clashing prints – just ensure the scale of each pattern is the same.

Checks can also be found scattered throughout homewares stores right now, particularly popular for bedding and soft furnishings. However being the classic print that they are, we also like them on toys, prints, any accessory that takes your fancy really. Check mate!
