Is your Autumn wardrobe ready for check, mate? From houndstooth to ginghams to tartans, fashionistas from the US, Europe and Great Britain are mad about plaid this season. Old-school classic black-and-white checks and stately tartans plaids are back and better than ever, and for 2017 they’re joined by modern updates and trendy twists. Whether you opt for a statement coat, a handbag upgrade, suiting separates for the office or even just a jaunty new scarf, you can check ‘looking fabulous’ off your list!

If the designer shows this year were any hint of things to come, a check coat is possibly the must-have item for autumn. Always at the forefront of bringing runway looks to the high street, River Island is on point with this black and white check coat for AW17. Mixing chic menswear tailoring with perfect proportions, this topper will be perfect over jeans and a rollneck for a country walk amongst the autumn foliage, or pair it with brightly coloured accessories and some patent leather ankle boots for loads of urban flair on a night out in town. RI Plus is in on the action too, with a check robe coat that’s bang on trend and super flattering.


Bring the runway to the office, with suiting separates from V by Very. The tapered leg check trousers flatter your pins, while the coordinating tailored longline check jacket adds professional polish – plus it will be great even off-duty, paired with jeans and a tee! River Island offers a slightly more edgy pelmet skirt in black check with zipper detailing, that will take you from work to a night out with ease.

Feel like tartan things up a bit? The check frill wrap dress from V by Very brings two autumn trends together in perfect harmony: the check pattern and the colour of the season, a luscious deep red. The frill hem and sleeves, combined with the wrap-waist detail, create an effortless elegance that will make this frock one of your wardrobe’s key pieces for Autumn. Or have a look at Joe Brown’s tweed tote bag, a sumptuous mix of textures in a deep red tartan – chic and modern but with undeniable retro appeal.

Finally, for a understated nod to the check trend, treat yourself to one of V by Very’s gorgeous scarves – one in lush plaids in multiple autumnal hues, and the other in russet and white – both are warm, soft and absolutely lovely, so you can’t go wrong.
