HOW TO DO CHECKS FOR WORK

By Maybelle Morgan, November 26, 2017

Whether it’s tartan, houndstooth or windowpane, the number one lesson to learn this season is that checks (heritage in particular) are what’s making waves in your wardrobe right now. Looking for a place to start?

The main thing to take away from this sweet 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 pants 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 that working girl sass. Chunky black aviators seal that bossing-it deal.
