Fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how.
I think it’s safe to say that most of us own at least one piece of checked clothing. After all, plaids and checks are classic and endure season after season. However, if, like me, you’re a little jaded with the browns and beiges, change up a gear and embrace a bolder take. Hot pink with pillar-box red, lush green and black or bright multicoloured checks look great with jeans or tailoring and work from day to night, town to country.
How to brighten up your checks:
Try the London look
Neutral checked accessories with statement brights? Perfect! Just ensure the tones work.
From Paris with love
For a little French chic, try a classic button-through knit in a bold check.
Rock a Roman holiday
A boxy jacket in pretty pink looks sweet and will wake up faded denim. Just add heels.
