I love check infact I love it so much I could wear it head to toe but I discovered lots pf people feel uneasy in bold prints. Not everyone is into a stand-out-in-the-crowd kind of outfit and that is exactly what wearing check print can instantly do to you. It is such a bold and fun classic print for those who are not afraid to make a statement and to top this it is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon so I guess we best get jiggy with it. Don’t fret if you think you love check and love how it looks on everyone else but wish you could pull it off, I’ve got some tips for you on how you can incorporate it into you single colour routine wardrobe because variety is the key to a remotely interesting life and your clothes are definitely no exception to this.
GO FOR CHECK PRINTS IN COLOURS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH
As you might already know there are tons of check colour patterns out there. If you are not one for bold and bright colours go for check prints with a more demure and down to earth colour palette. This will instantly take away at least 80% of your fear and leave you feeling more confident of your ability to pull off your outfit. The colour that easily comes to mind are the classic brown or grey check, there is a piece for everyone out there.
PICK A COLOUR FROM YOUR CHECK PIECE YOU WANT TO PAIR WITH
Like I said, personally I don’t mind piling on prints with reckless abandon but if you are print shy I suggest you pick a colour from you check print piece and work with it. For example you could have a check blazer that has a combination of 3 colours say blue, yellow and red, what you need to do is pair your blazer with a blue, yellow or red anything. It could be your shoes, your pants or even your bag that comes in one this single colours. This way you can play down the loudness of your print.
GO CASUAL WITH IT
The easiest way to get rid of the weird stares and invite the She’s-so-cool stares is to pair your high pitched checks with cool and calm casuals like a plain Tee or snickers or even a sassy mule. This is not to say you can’t dress up your check pieces if you want but I guess the topic is hw to make it look a little less show-offish and little more cool glam beside sneakers are the new 7inch heels if yo haven’t heard
GO WITH CONFIDENCE OR NOT AT ALL
This I think is actually the most important. Don’t let your print wear you. Confidence is the ultimate way to pull off any outfit. Even if you are dressed in bin lining head to toe, with confidence you could make everyone fill like they are the ones in bin liners and not you(Magic!)
