As we look towards the second half of the winter season, we tend to opt for the same look, normally out of sheer efficiency. While jeans or chinos, a knitted jumper and boots make for an easy weekend uniform, the tired outfit formula has us feeling placid and uninspired. And while the taste of sun-soaked spring days are just on the horizon there is still time to invest in layering pieces to take you through the trans-seasonal period.

While checks “never go out of style” according to ICON Fashion Director Kim Payne, the classic print has made its way from suits and shirts and is “coming up stronger in outerwear”. Whether you’re in casual attire or dressing up, look to this bomber and “wear it over a suit or keep it casual and over a tee.”

When tying in the print to the rest of the look, choose key colours throughout the check and match with other pieces for a tonal and fail-safe approach. For ultimate comfort and warmth, try a refined track pant (more on that here) that lends a street style feel.
