For a girl who studied in a private school for thirteen years of her short lived life, where a tartan/checkered or plaid (pick the name you prefer) skirt overruled my legs; covering 3 inches- no more, no less- below my knees, this trend took a while to get under my skin. Don't get me wrong, I have long made amends with my schoolgirl trauma, and amiably welcomed this tendency into my "trend approval list", and it's all thanks to the way this pattern is being transformed and styled.

Classy, edgy, punk-rock- ish and/or street style couture, you name it. This biased school girl look has surpassed its classroom days and has bloomed into a check & mate tendency that is brushing its shoulders with the beloved floral and striped prints.
Do you agree?
Sincerely, Blanche! xx
