Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or in my case, hardly get a chance to update yourself on what’s in fashion, you’ll know that checks are bang on trend right now. If you’re hearing this news for the first time, welcome to my world...
After discovering this ground-breaking news, I looked through my wardrobe. There wasn’t a check in sight so I decided to take action. I jumped onto Yoox and bought this Prada skirt. The one I’m wearing in these pictures. It’s on sale and I basically saved money, at least that was the explanation I gave my husband when he asked me about it. It might be on-trend but it’s also timeless and they’re the best kind of purchases. I ended up wearing it to the recent VOGUE Codes event where I was speaking on the panel. Phew. Saved. I didn’t think it would be appropriate to turn up to a VOGUE event in active wear. Or jeans. Or worse, track pants. For once, I felt polished and put together.
Anyway, to keep our lovely readers updated on this trend, we’ve done a bit of research and come up with eight checked pieces you’ll love. At least, we hope you love them. If you don’t, there’s plenty more checked options on Yoox to inspire you.
Note to reader: this is not an outfit for wearing with toddlers in tow (unless you have a particularly clean child). This is my kid-free attire. It’s the kind of outfit that makes me feel like the old me for a moment – the one who can wear Prada skirts and white shirts without a care in the world. Of course, the minute I’m home, I change into jeans and a tee and get ready for the stains to be thrown my way, but I can’t wait to bring out my new Prada purchase again sometime soon.
Jump onto Yoox now because they’re offering our readers a special 20% discount off their entire range. Just Use the code THEGRACETALES20 on checkout. Valid for two weeks
