CHECK out this season’s most sought after print.

From tartan to tweed, heritage patterns have been given a modern update so there’s no need to look like your old geography teacher.

Checks are a must-have, think figure-hugging skirts, slip dresses and, thankfully, no elbow patches.

Here, CLEMMIE FIELDSEND shows you how to wear the hottest trend with the high street’s finest offerings so you can score a fashion check mate.
