HOW TO WEAR HERITAGE CHECKS FOR FW17
By Libby Banks, September 22, 2017
It’s hip to be square. Heritage checks are freshened up for fall with exaggerated proportions, mash-up layering, and a nod to the sporty style of the early '90s.
Windowpane check is another heritage stalwart ready for revival. Once favored by the Duke of Windsor and Clark Gable for their Savile Row suits, you might have noticed that early adopters around the urban landscape are wearing it in a totally different way.
Windowpane works well if you want to smarten your 'fit up without looking too traditional — and it's the natural partner for a bold stripe. The trick is to keep your colors tonal, but play with proportions. So mix an oversized blazer with cropped slim-fit pants. While a V-neck sweater layered over a zip-through top is the perfect way to update classic casuals styling.
To give this cult item an update for fall, wear with tapered heritage check pants, Reebok sneakers and white tube socks. Tuck the hoodie in for a fresh take on normcore styling.
