Check Yo'self, Girl
This season, the Prince of Wales check is taking over. For AW17, the super-chic mono-check is cast in formal silhouettes, playful fit-and-flare minis, and cute co-ords - taking the classic motif way beyond tradish. Queens, prepare for smart get-up to dominate your 'drobe (have you got your blazer yet?) with the most regal fabrication going.
Suiting is the natural habitat for this check to roam, looking at once sharp and sleek. Team your suit with casj footwear to ground your look and remove the formal edge.
Trousers £13, jacket £20
Make an impact with plenty of blood red accents, or transform classic LRDs (that's little red dresses, duh) with a checked power blazer.
Larger plaids also spar for attention, this season, with classic tartan and lumber jacket flannels delivering the goods and injecting colour.
Aviator jacket £30, check T-shirt £8, skirt £8
Fashion's love affair with lacing-up continues into the cooler months. Look out for corset detailing, tie-sleeves, and eyelets.
Sweatshirt £10, skirt £8, shirt £12
