CHECKS, MATE

The best weather is coat weather. These cool checks will keep your style credentials intact when it’s cold

A little bit heritage, a little bit punk, checks pack a punch however you wear them. From Erdem to Versace, designers reworked tartans, plaids and Prince of Wales checks into vibrant and unexpected new guises for the autumn/winter 2018 runways. The easiest way to work the trend into your wardrobe is with a knockout coat that’ll have strangers tapping you on the shoulder to ask where you got it. Try the generous proportions of this catwalk-inspired wrap coat (left) or opt for clean-lined simplicity with a monochrome Crombie-style coat. Leather boots add a hint of rebelliousness to the look.
