Seeing as we’ve just dropped the first taster of our AW collection, we figured we’d hook you up with a few tips and tricks to show you just how versatile the Traditional Check Pants can be, so you get maximum wear for minimum effort. Just throw on a different top and it’s a whole new look – right?
If you’re all about comfort whilst still keeping it fashionable and (sometimes) weather adaptable, fear no more, as you’ve come to the right place. Over at NGO Zine, we have styled the traditional check drawcord trouser in three different ways, so it is sure to keep you going from dusk til dawn, all whilst being insanely comfortable.
We know the transition from SS to AW is a hard one. The heatwaves have been fun but it’s nearly time to get autumnal. What better way to show you’re ready for the festive season than a super-hot pair of drawcord trousers? Easy-going, check. Cool and comfy, check. Smart and functional, check. What a dream.
Channel your inner 90’s girl band or TV show by throwing on a wide leg pair of drawcord trousers. They’re sure to be the ultimate staple for your AW wardrobe.
Business wear but make it fashion.
It would be impossible to style these trousers without including the option of the matching piece to the co-ord. The full set really is what check co-ord dreams are made of.
The traditional check wrap blouse is a great addition to the outfit. Not only does it match perfectly, but it’s so on trend. With puff sleeves, plunge neckline and a tie back, it’s an easy way of perfecting the working wardrobe.
The easiest and most comfortable way to tick all the S’s: smart, stylish, sexy and sassy.
To finish off the look, pair with a killer hair accessory and a handheld clutch. You’ll be serving all of the executive realness.

Also… not to blow our own trumpet or anything, but both of these tees are from our organic range. Cute and eco-friendly – winning.
Add some chunky trainers and cat eye sunglasses for the perfect chilled accessories to finish off the look.

CROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT
One of the best things about these trousers? (Because we can’t choose just one thing) - The colour. A neutral shade on the bottom half means you’re free to go as wild as you desire on top.
A black bandeau is perfect for the girls who prefer a neutral colour palette, but for those who love a pop of colour, why not team with the orange one shoulder crop top. Whatever you choose, you’re guaranteed to turn heads.
Some statement jewellery and a pair of strappy heels are the perfect additions to pair with this soft glam look.
