And they come in so many beautiful variations too. Gingham, plaid, windowpane, tartan, houndstooth, graph and much more.

Regarded as this season's hottest trend, checks are expected to make a major impact. From subtly embellishing classic designs to appearing as giant prints to embolden a look, they are everywhere. A slightly darker one can even give an outfit an almost punk-ish feel.

How do you wear checks? The rule of thumb is not to overcomplicate matters. The beauty is in the print's simplicity and should be paired with a solid colour.
