A trend we have seen in the current fashion shows in NY is gingham. Well, to me checks is checks is checks. I like them in all sizes. Here we have some BIG checks in black and cream. This is sold as a dress, but as short as it is, it can be worn as a tunic with skinnies or leggings. I've paired it with leather leggings. I topped it with a cream and black striped cardigan for cooler weather. The shoes are kitten heels with gold accents. The handbag looks like a camera for fun. The jewelry adds color, a bit of lovely sea green and gold in earrings and a cuff. For fun and character, I added sunnies and a black beret.
