They're not just for lumberjacks! This winter, checks are set for a renaissance and will bring a touch of modernity to perfect cuts. Tartan is also making a strong comeback to the runways.

The big question: would you be seen in McDonald print? It's easy to make a serious fashion faux pas with tartan, so we say err on the side of safety and keep it low key.

Top right: Isabel Marant mixes checks with a gray fur-lined waistcoat and flat boots. Note that trousers tucked into boots still works!
