Check Mate

by Manchester Arndale, 31st October 2016 | Fashion

Play with pattern to win in the fashion stakes.

Complementing the current trend for traditional British style, checked pattern is big news this season.
Add traditional tartan to your wardrobe or invest in a dark check wool coat. There are plenty of moody, winter colours out there to create a laidback grungy look – think deep reds, purple and grey.

What’s even better about the check trend is it’s totally unisex. Coats, blazers, shirts and trousers are covered in squares throughout retailer stores. So if you can’t find an oversized shirt in the women’s section – head to the men’s (and vice versa!).

Add a sprinkle of punk to your check wardrobe. Team this Warehouse jacket with these houndstooth trousers from TK Maxx and finish with these ankle boots from Ecco to give your look real attitude.
