Knock, knock. At your (wardrobe) door are the new picnic blanket checks, spring’s straight-talking print that you’ll be wanting a piece of, like RN. First seen on Victoria Beckham’s super-sleek models for SS16, the best part is that this super-fresh pattern is also a day or night thing. See how Kiernan Shipka smashed it and how you can tick all the right boxes.
CATWALK TREND DECODED

Square was all the rage at Victoria Beckham’s SS16 show, with models strolling down the catwalk sporting preppy, knitted dresses in contrasting picnic checks with crisp white loafers. Chic central.
Mad Men cutie Kiernan Shipka stole all the stares at Stella McCartney’s pre-AW16 presentation, wearing one of the designer’s one-shoulder, checked dresses. Bonus points go to the ivory box clutch and metallic, heeled loafers. Yes, KS.

Meet the red, checked shirt dress, here to bring the freshness. Toughen it up with buckled boots and black fishnets or channel the catwalk and wear with white slip-on trainers. Nailed-it.
