Checks are not so humble anymore with fashion designers presenting them in diverse, engaging patterns, this season. Check it out!
Who says matching is boring? Like designer Manish Bansal, add the same pattern of checks to your shoes. Also experiment with a slant hem that takes a simple chequered shirt to a new level

Print clash gets a new meaning with this bittergourd print on checks by Aartivijay Gupta. Gupta also used different checks for lining her jackets for peek-a-boo checks. Pic/Shadab Khan
Create a high-low hem with layering as Kriti Tula. Tula used solid blocks of colour to add some rugged drama to no fuss checks. Pic/Bipin Kokate
For a bold statement, go for bold checks like designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. The key in not going overboard here is to restrict the print just to the hem. Pic/Shadab Khan
Several traditional Indian weaving techniques help create checks. Like designer Gaurang Shah, you can mix two distinct styles, one for the blouse other for the sari. Pic/Shadab Khan
Don’t just restrict your checks usage to prints. Take inspiration from Tanieya Khanuja’s origami-style chequered creation that makes basket and chair weaving patterns look glam.
Borrow a chequered shirt from your other half’s wardrobe to pair with a sari. You can also tuck in the shirt to shorten the length. Pic/Bipin Kokate
