How to wear the must-have print for autumn: check

Don't be afraid to wear head to toe check as seen on the runway of Baum Und Pferdgarten.

‘Tis the season for check. 

From heritage tartan to classic houndstooth, check has become the ubiquitous print for the autumn season. Take the bold approach as seen at Dior to Miu Miu where big windowpane style took centre stage. 

Can’t choose a favourite? Not to worry: clashing plaid with gingham is runway-approved.
