Check patterns aren’t going away this year. They’ve always been popular, regardless of fashion, and, like stripes, they’re universally flattering to wear all year.

Tartan, gingham, and checkerboard checks are distinct from one another even though they all have crisscrossed grid lines that connect in a perpendicular manner.

1.  Gingham

Gingham was initially a cloth manufactured from cotton mix yarn, but the term has also come to be linked with the design. The gingham weaving technique produces a monochromatic check pattern on a white backdrop. Depending on the colour selected, the amount of transparency changes.


2. Tartan

As the cloth evolved over time, a check print was developed and quickly became its characteristic design. Flannel was eventually embraced by the grunge subculture in the 1990s, giving it fresh, edgy air. Flannel shirts are still popular now due to their comfort and effortlessly casual design.
