Whether you classify yourself as a lady who has a flare for vintage classy outfits or you deem yourself a dainty damsel who likes to stroll around town in edgy cheeky urban fashion outfits, you need to introduce some check prints in your closet for summers!
Checks for summers? Yes, you heard us right!
Ever since fashion gurus and creative artists have started perusing through the statement 70s and 80s fashion trends, vintage prints such as plaids, checks, and tartan have been back in business like a boss. Plaids, however, were very specifically incorporated only in the fall and winter fashion palette and tartan and checks were exclusive either for menswear or school uniforms until 2017.
However, check prints were seen dominating the summer fashion weeks in 2018. And, nope, the supermodels showcasing those didn’t look like high school gals in uniforms. As a matter of fact, check prints can be real fun to style in quirky street style looks. How do you ask? Let’s find out:
1. Skirt and Crop Top
Wear check print in what can easily be categorized as one of the most popular street style wear for summers: miniskirts and crop tops. For a girl-next-door look, we suggest flaunting a loose flowy sleeveless crop top. Maybe some wedges or open toes sandals and an edgy pair of sunglasses.
But, if you really want to, here’s what we suggest: a puffed sleeves crop top with back halter neck; an OTT bow headband; a mini-skirt; and high heels stilettos or platform heels in quirky prints. That’s how you do vintage cheeky outfits for summers right!
2. A Slim-Fit Check Blazer
You can casually throw on a slim-fit check blazer over a funky t-shirt and skinnies. Go white if you want a retro glam: white chinos and white lace top would serve as a great key base to throw on a layer of bold colored check blazer. Finish off with traditional pointed toe pumps. You can wear this outfit to work if you want to!
3. Check Print Trousers
High-rise check print trousers look professional enough to wear to work and edgy enough to dress up for a day out! It all depends on how you style it. For a day at work, if you don’t want your check outfit to be boring pair your check trousers with a bright red top. For a day out, a loose chiffon top with plunging neckline would be a perfect fit.
