The vintage cuts and prints are coming back intensively and there are more and more fashion pieces that look just like the ones we see from back in the ‘70s. One iconic print is the black and white checkered midi skirt. While bringing back a sense of nostalgia, it is still a classic and has not gone out of style all these years.
Inspired by Yeoh Mongchin’s (IG: @mongabong) OOTD, pair this classic skirt with a white top with balloon sleeves for an eye-catching and slightly retro look. As a day outfit, the skirt with the front buttoning gives the look a casual vibe, while the sleeves create a more elegant one, so the balance is perfect. Open toe heeled sandals are also a nice and fashionable addition to the look.
Easy, comfortable and with high-waist, this skirt will find a special place in your closet. it is a beautiful piece that can be worn into many different combinations and paired with different types of footwear. The midi length makes it perfectly appropriate for work or casual day strolls. The black and white combination allows accessories and footwear in more daring colours.
The checked print of the black and white skirt goes best with cotton top in a plain white or other very light option. The midi sleeves of this top go perfectly with the midi length to the skirt. Another interesting detail is the front buttoning of the shirt, with the same position on the buttons like on the skirt. The balloon sleeves add to the vintage look.
To finish on a retro note, complete your outfit with a pair of heeled sandals. Find ones that are comfortable but trend such as this pair of 3-inch chunky heel which will allow you to go through the day easily.
