Whether tartan, houndstooth or windowpane, checks (heritage in particular) are making serious waves this season. Looking for a place to start?

The main thing to take away from this sweet-as oversized look is that different checks should be friends, not enemies. Julia pairs a boxy 80s-style double-breasted jacket in subtle grid lines with cropped mensy trousers in a harsher windowpane check.

Layered over a rose-pink shirt to pretty up the vibe, retro patent boots and a sassy grab-handle clutch add working-girl sass. Chunky black aviators seal the deal – bossing it.
