3 WAYS TO WEAR HERITAGE CHECKS

By Maybelle Morgan, 3 October 2017

Newsflash: florals are taking a back seat as we nosedive straight into autumn. Right now, it's all about earthy heritage checks to bring some print power to your AW17 outfits. And the best part? It's a square dance everyone can take part in. Check out these three different ways to wear it...

Matchy matchy

Cash your checks in style like model Laetitia by doubling up on the print. For a true seasonal win, opt for a houndstooth trench coat and match with tailored trousers in light checks. A zip-up tracksuit and skate sneaks tone down the Sherlock Holmes vibes and add a cool street-style look instead.

Top that

If an autumnal walk in the countryside isn't your thing, revamp your heritage checks with a pop of punky colour. Artist Al Ly makes them current with this purple high-neck top, before amping up the chic with wide-leg trousers and technical trainers. Finish off with a wow-worthy red patent trench coat and you've got yourself a statement weekend win.

Getting skirty

For a subtle dose of the trend? Make like ASOS Insider Barbara and channel Cher Horowitz by going Clueless with your skirt, like this wool mini number with a dreamy pearl trim. Pair it with a historical funnel-neck blouse, but avoid going too preppy by picking eclectic accessories. Think a beret and rose puffer jacket for the cutesy factor, and varsity sneakers plus sports-tipped socks for a hint of vintage style.
