TREND WATCH: Check Mate!

TREND WATCH: Check Mate. FashionBite

Seeing Gwen Stefani out in London last week, two things were noted; one, the woman seems to be getting better with age whilst having respectively kept to her style roots throughout each decade (this is why she is a true fashion icon- never following, always setting her own standards.) And two, checks are back!

TREND WATCH: Check Mate. FashionBite

Whether you keep to the monochrome look (à la Stefani) or tie it in with plaid, dogtooth, gingham or tartan, the check will keep you style savvy this season. Wearing a full printed jumpsuit is a sure fire way to get noticed and is a great option for a big night out by keeping the rest of the outfit simple, like Gwen does best with black stilettos, a cape and swish of scarlet lip. Accessories work great by injecting a prominent trend into your everyday outfit in a more subtle way with a stunning bag, gloves, pair of leggings etc; or simply go for it, check trousers with a geometric printed shirt, colour pop wedges and a fun fur stole- because sometimes more is well, more (and will keep you on trend until next season where clashing prints are going to be huge!)
