Lum­berchecks

Pre­pare to be mad about the plaid, thanks to work­man checks tak­ing over the street-style scene

Whether it’s tar­tan, ging­ham or Prince of Wales, our love of checks knows no sar­to­rial bounds. Sec­ond only to clas­sic Bre­ton stripes, grid mo­tifs have long been an out­fit stal­wart for those in the know, but now there’s a new print on the block wor­thy of our at­ten­tion. For­merly as­so­ci­ated with lum­ber­jacks – yes, those in the busi­ness of log­ging – block red and black checks have been awarded #ootd sta­tus thanks to the likes of Zara and Is­abel Marant, who’ve given the ca­sual sta­ple a glossy over­haul. Warn­ing: you may feel a sud­den urge to yell ‘Tim­ber!’ but don’t worry, these out­fits won’t fall short (ahem). Think slinky slip dresses, co­coon coats and pel­met skirts and you’re on the right track. Of course, there are plenty of shirts to choose from too. Just re­place the tool belt and Cater­pil­lar boots with leather trousers and vel­vet flats. 1
