Cool Checkered Patterns Are Here For Fall 2017

If you’ve been sporting gingham this entire fall, you’ll be pleased to know that checkered patterns are set to make a statement this autumn. Although the season of picnics and backyard gatherings may be slowly and sadly drawing to a close, checkered patterns have lit up the Fall 2017 runways. For more inspiration, try taking your inspiration from the catwalks, and rocking fierce checks in true fashionista form for the season ahead.


One look at the Zimmerman runway reveals oversized checks in subtle shades of grey, black and white. We are coveting this bulky, open collar blazer, which is styled with a pair of baggy trousers and a nude turtleneck top. Meanwhile, the addition of funky hoop earrings helps to fully complete the business chic look.


If you want to make the checkered trend feel feminine and dainty, turn to the Self-Portrait runway. The look of a grey plaid ruffled frock can easily transform checks from stuffy and staid to contemporary. A finishing V-neckline, thigh-high slit and ruffled hemline can instantly create a ladylike silhouette.

Tory Burch

For a more conservative and classic take on the trend, Tory Burch presents the red, blue and white printed flared trouser. The funky plaid pattern contrasts effortlessly with a pale blue pussybow blouse, and also matches with a coordinating leather handbag. Try creating a preppy effect with a velvety black hair bow, paired with gleaming crystal stud earrings.
