How to style checked trousers

 31 October 2018


Checked trousers are big news. Huge news, in fact. Sure, they’ve been spotted on the legs of incredibly stylish men on the street for years now, but only recently have they become a tried and true trend worn all around the world.


A lot of men, however, have yet to dip their toes into the seemingly confusing world of checked trousers, no matter how confident they are. But, with the right tricks and tips, they  actually need not be confusing at all – have these up your sleeve and you’ll fast become the envy of every man too scared to try it out. No matter what style you’re going for (and there are a plethora of options out there) there’s something for everyone. For work, for play or for a bit of both, we’ve got you covered.


SHOP TROUSERS

Small, subtle checks


These mini, unassuming checks are a brilliant place to start if you fear anything resembling a pattern. Subtle but stylish enough to make a point, a check like this is almost as delicate as gingham, meaning that it will blend perfectly into the rest of your outfit. Pairing it with bold, autumnal colours is a wonderful way of bringing the whole look together, and this deep, dark plum tone looks great on everyone.



Thicker, wider checks


If you’re ready to make more of a statement, go for something wider and bolder like these thick checks. More reminiscent of a classic check, this style is perfect for men looking to up the ante in the workplace. For smarter occasions, pair with classics such as a crisp white shirt and thick wool overcoat and for weekends, go for a white trainer and a neutral T-shirt.



Dark, delicate checks


Somewhere in the middle of the tiny, more subtle checks and a thicker and wider one sits a dark and delicate check, which is perfect for this time of year. Truthfully, it’s subtle enough to wear for every occasion, but works especially well in the winter months with your favourite pieces of knitwear and an amazingly stylish, double-breasted peacoat.
