Outfit Pick: Balenciaga skirt
Take check to the next level with a play on textures, Balenciaga's skirt nods to the check trend without craning its neck too much and the stripy top mixes up the patterns. A chunky cardigan with a patent belt is cosy and stylish, while the grey peep toe boots are a brave choice that will pay off. Wear a dimpled shiny cuff to add to the textures and complete the look.
