After topping the charts last fall, the 'check mix' has made their way into spring 2018 as one of the biggest print trends. It seems as though checks are covering everything, from outerwear to skirts, swimsuits, co-ord sets and trousers. They can easily be incorporated into any outfit as an eye-catching detail and it is no surprise that the 'check brigade' is literally everywhere you look.
Fashion week has shown us how checks have been mixed to produce completely new patterns! There is no doubt that we love this trend and can't wait to embrace it. From oversized blazers at Balenciaga to feminine styles at Victoria Beckham such as flared midi skirts, let's have a look at the all the check-on-check action that went down the runway.
One of the easiest ways to incorporate the check trend is undoubtedly a check co-ord set. Miu Miu sets an unbeatable example with a check pantsuit. It has our hearts.
