5 Ways To Wear Checks

In fact, the timeless print has been having a burgeoning revival. Forget that unflattering secondary school uniform that you bunched around your waist so it wouldn’t fall past your calves – checks are sexy. Just ask 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, and Altuzarra, who have given the print a significant mention in recent collections.
