A trend for AW18 which will be one everyone can try is checks. It’s perfect is animal print is a bit too over the top for you or you have simply had enough of it being everywhere. They can be graphic and simple or in a gingham or in a plaid style. There are more options than you may think! I was sent the Baukjen Emi dress (which has been named after one of the lovely ladies who works at Baukjen for her love of anything gingham!). I have been looking for a black and white check long dress for ages (since last year – is that too obsessive? Maybe…) and this particular dress has ticked all the boxes in style and design. Baukjen are the perfect label to go to if you want classic designs with an on-trend twist and modern, “put together” finishes. I know this dress will get a lot of wear this season so I thought I would show you how I’m planning on styling it.
Out and about or on a lunch date this dress looks as though it was made to be teamed with a leather biker jacket and little black boots.
Casual and cosy
Perfect for the colder days, I love the way dresses can easily be worn with a knit layered over the top. The Marks and Spencer white boots I’m wearing are comfortable but make the outfit more “go out and face the day” ready.
For dashing about with the little ones this dress is easy to pull on in the mornings and get on with the day.
Everyday and easy to wear
Team this dress with biker boots and a cashmere rollneck for a Winter warming outfit which is perfect for a woodland walk followed by a pub lunch.
I was sent the Baukjen Emi dress as a gift however all images, styling and writing are my own.
