Something for the weekend

14 March 2014

Checks are *still* big news. It doesn't matter if it's proper F1 style checkerboard prints or summery takes on tartan - if it has criss crosses, it's in the shops.

Don't be afraid to clash different checked pieces within one outfit or to go ultra modern, modern is your friend!

Get your chequebook ready (*groan*).... 

1. Knitted Sweater by Thakoon Addition - £265

Can't get your layering just right? Cheat a layered look with this jumper's 'built-in' shirt style hem. Transitional dressing at its best.

2. Sweater by Beach London - £14 (reduced from £35)

This blurry take on a checked print by French design duo Bonjour Jean Jacques is awesome because a) it looks GREAT and b) people in bars will be genuinely confused as to whether your top is blurred or they're just hammered.

3. Joggers by Topshop - £38

No need to limit these joggers to lazing about the house, match with strappy sandals and a sequin vest for sports luxe sassiness.

4. Collared Dress by BooHoo - £18

Because who DOESN'T want to look effortlessly cool?

5. Clutch by ASOS - £8.50 (reduced from £25)

A girl can't have enough clutch bags, especially when they're on sale and combine modern florals with checks. That's just, like, obvious.

6. Mini Dress by Tibi - £395

The cut of this dress is seriously flattering on the long legged and lord knows that printed lace is a lot more practical than actual lace. Pins at the ready...

7. Vintage Midi Dress from Urban Outfitters - £48

Think there was a better decade than the 90s? You're wrong.

Buy it here

8. Caged Jumpsuit by BooHoo - £30

It's a bit racy in the boob department, but that's kinda what makes it great. 

Buy it here

9. Wide Leg Trousers with Braces by ASOS - £15 (reduced from £50)

We're not entirely sure why these have been so heavily reduced as they're AMAZING, but we're not going to complain about a bargain. Sensible enough for work, fun enough for party times after.

Buy them here

10. Lip Gloss by Burberry - £18.50

Of course the Burberry check is probably the most desirable check of all time, get a piece of the action without going bankrupt with Burberry's new beauty range. This pink gloss is to die for.
