Laces in Gothic style, the coat-cocoon, sheepskin jackets this is not a full list of fashionable things of this season Autumn-Winter 2008/2009. Checkered fabric has to become an integral part of your clothes this season!
Podiums and fashionable magazines are full of models of checkered clothes. The checkered drawing brings up an association with a woollen plaid, the Scottish skirt or far 70-s', Now it is presented in the extremely elegant models. Besides, checkered clothes stand out against a background of dark fall and winter colours.
The combinations of black and red, and checkered with monophonic are very fashionable. However, you can combine different types of checks. But one should be brighter in colour than the other one.
In spite of the fact that this trend is on popularity peak now, you shouldn't forget about some important rules, applicable to this colouring. Do not go too far in brightness. Otherwise you risk to look like a clown, instead of the fashion admirer. It is better to choose muffled and not so bright colours, for example a classical black-and-white or brown check, grey or plam colouring as we we see in the autumn collection from House of Holland.
