The days when plaids were primarily associated with lumberjack shirts are long gone. The designers surprise with extremely feminine cuts, so that the clothing exudes pure femininity.

You can wear checks in both the elegant and the cool, casual version. Everything is represented in the current fashion collections from the noble coat in checked look to the mini skirt in tartan checks.

The plaid is the most famous pattern. It actually comes from the earlier Scottish clans, where it was also known as tartan. This pattern came to China more than 4000 years ago.

The tartan has become a trademark of Burberry among designers. Although this pattern is very old, it is currently mainly worn by young women, because tartan checks look cool and rebellious.

The Glencheck, on the other hand, is very delicate, this pattern originally comes from the famous Loch Ness. It quickly became a favorite of King Edward VIII, preferring his suits in this plaid pattern.

A special version of the Glencheck was designed for him, also known as the Prince of Wales check. Even if the pattern was very classy back then, it is no longer worn in a classic way today. So you can wear wonderfully rough boots with a mini dress with glencheck checks.

Very elegant contrast comes houndstooth; therefore, it resembles the Pepita is very, patterned only bigger. Of course, this check pattern also comes from Scotland, where it was a fabric for men, it was only Christian Dior who discovered it for women.

It was the favorite pattern of the great designer, he even dressed his legendary perfume "Miss Dior" in houndstooth. Even today, the houndstooth is still worn in the very noble version, for example on cocktail dresses or a pompous stole.

The Vichy check used to be considered very conservative and well-behaved, it was very popular, especially in the 50s. Back then, blouses in this pattern were mainly worn, preferably red with white, blue with white, or pink with white. It's actually a kitchen check, because the tablecloths in French bistros also have this pattern.

Today the Vichy check has nothing in common with this plain image. You currently wear it in bright, intense colors, for example, in cobalt blue. The fabrics are rather noble, so that the outfit is extremely chic.

The lattice check comes not from Scotland, but from England. At the beginning of the 19th century, however, it was not women who wore it first, but the horses of a British entrepreneur in the form of blankets.

At that time, the base of the fabric was cream, the grid pattern on it mostly gray or purple. This season, the designers implemented the check pattern mainly in cool black and white for a more subtle but fresh look.
