Issey Miyake makes me want to fill my wardrobe with beautiful summer checks

Sometimes a collection just grabs you, and Issey Miyake’s SS18 offering has me obsessing over pretty checks and effortless silhouettes. There’s something so easy but on-trend about these pieces and they sum up exactly how I want to dress in spring/summer. In an effort to embrace the Miyake aesthetic at a more affordable price, I found these standout pieces on the high street, and I want every single one.

This dress is so me! The colour has warmth to it, which I need because I’m so pale, it provides total coverage, which I also need, or at least prefer, because of my pale skin, and it creates a really elegant silhouette. It’s made from a very fine knit so could work throughout the seasons with a bit of clever layering.

Long check dress, €49.95 at Zara

Jumpsuits are now a staple in my wardrobe, winter and summer. I love this check version from Mango, with its button detailing at the hips. It can be styled with trainers or heels.

Linen-blend jumpsuit, €59.95 at Mango

These softer pastel shades feel so fresh and are ideal as we move into May. I really like the dipped hemline of the wrap skirt. It adds a subtle point of difference to the piece.

Wrap skirt, €89 at Arket

Modern frills don’t have to be pretty, they can be directional too. The combination of monochrome checks and statement frills creates a really modern piece that can be snapped up for just €11.49!

Frilled dress, €11.49 (reduced from €19.99) at H&M
