Who says checks or plaids are only for winter? For many seasons, designers certainly fell for these timeless classic prints, and are mixing them with balance to become thoroughly wearable all year round.

 

Yes, the Checks trend comes and goes, but designers like Gucci, Etro or Raf Simons’ Calvin Klein 205W39NYC refuse to let it go that easily. Instead they introduced lightweight tailoring solutions especially designed for the heat.

 

The key way to make checks work is to try different complex motifs like windowpane or Prince of Wales, even on essentials like knitwear, trousers and outerwear. But don’t forget to make sure the rest of your ensemble if fully toned down.
