The AW20 season hit the catwalk back in Feb, and since then our shops have not only faced the challenge of covid19, they have also had to take the catwalk trends and shape them into wearable pieces for us everyday. Also during this time, how we have dressed has changed, with more home working – some of us will be happy with this, whilst others will be wishing to get back to their ‘normal’ dress code and the desire to get out and about again.
One element that came through the catwalk trends was a continued focus on sustainability, and pieces that are more classical and wearable over time. CHECK is a key ‘trend’ for AW’20. Check never goes out of style for long, which is presumably why with sustainability and a more seasonal-less approach to dressing, it was thought that AW’20 was the perfect time to bring it back to the foreground.
Checks are an easy pattern for even a print-avoider to incorporate into their wardrobe. However as ever there are some keys tips for getting the most out of this trend for you personally.
If you suit dark colours, you probably have dark hair and eyes – and this cape jacket from River Island is a great throw on over everything from jeans to a pencil skirt
Whilst if dark colours overwhelm you, you probably have blonde hair and light eyes, and hence something like this fitted jumper from Marks & Spencer will balance out your delicate colouring. Its super soft, so great for the autumn days ahead, and whilst the design is bold but the lighter colours make it easy to wear.
