Checked or Glitter? The season is all about Team Checked or Team Glitter.  The two elements are basically all over the place – checked pants, checked blazer, checked belts or glittery dress, glittery top, glittery shoes, you name it.  And of course, both of them are my big loves and how can I miss them?  So I have put together some outfits for you, casual and formal, so that you won't panic being invited to a glitter- or checked- themed dinner!

All about the Checks first!  I only realise that there are many different technical terms for the kinds of checks until now which I did a little research.  Gingham, Tartan, Houndstooth, Madras, Window Pane, and many more.  So here I am gonna start with something more "entry level".

1. Glen Checked Belt

The executive- kinda check - Glen Checks.  It might be me, but Glen checks appear to be the "executive"-like check - more formal, more autumnal/winter-ish.  Especially with a glen checked belt, it brings a pinch of dressed-up-ness to the casual simple white shirt dress.

2. Gingham Checked Set

A slight move to the more informal check.  When I say checked, I mean checked.  What else can be better than a full-on gingham co-ord set?  A little different from the other two, I call this the "picnic check".  It's the kind of checks for classic classic picnic tablecloth.  Ooh, not a bad idea to wear this co-ord while I lie on the classic picnic tablecloth for a gingham camouflage.

3. Glen Checked Skirt

Again, imagine you being invited to a checked-themed casual dinner in the weekend and do not want to look like you try too hard.  A glen checked skirt will be your best option.  While the skirt with the big buckle and heels raise some little attention, the t-shirt makes it seem effortless.  Now tell the others, "oh that's casual wear for me".
