Houndstooth, gingham, argyle, plaid, buffalo—checked fabrics are in, and it’s one trend that’s easy to check off your list. Read Fashion Fabrics Club’s guide to rocking the check trend this season.

Check TrousersTrousers

Whether you prefer wide leg or tailored skinnies, a plaid trouser is a fun focal point in an outfit for work or play. The larger the check pattern, the slimmer the leg looks.

The Perfect Christmas Scarf For Under $35Accents

Try mixing checks together in one outfit; the key here is to pair checks of different patterns that remain in the same color family. Try a small-checked black-and-white gingham collared shirt poking our from under a sweater and toss on a large plaid scarf over the top.

Check OuterwearOuterwear

Large buffalo checks give off a “borrowed from the boys” look that’s another major trend right now. Use the traditional large check in an oversized flannel, wool overcoat, or puffer vest. You can give it a feminine twist by layering a statement necklace on top, or tucking your flannel in to a midi skirt.

Check SkirtsSkirts

Houndstooth is forever in the arsenal of the most stylish. This season, it’s taking over the skirt scene. Try this asymmetrical check in a medium-sized check weave for a pencil skirt, or an oversized check print on a silky fabric for an A-line midi skirt.
