New season. New York.
Can you feel it? A new fashion season is upon us. And right at the top of your agenda should be checks: they’ll be big news from now until next summer. Here are our favourite ways to wear it, on the wincingly cool Marjan Jonkman…

Technical + tailoring
Thanks to Balenciaga, high-tech layers are the most coveted pieces in fashion right now. Mix them up with tailored separates.
Return of the mac
Seasons change, but a trench is for life. Adding optical checks courtesy of Joseph as a base feels right for 2018.
Above: Marjan wears coat, blouse (coming soon) and skirt (coming soon), all by Joseph; sneakers (coming soon) by Pierre Hardy, belt bag by Fendi, sunglasses by Linda Farrow, and jewellery (worn throughout): oval hoop earrings, Stilla and Floris ear cuffs, and sapphire bracelet, all by Astley Clarke; diamond hoop earrings and gold cuff bracelet, both by David Yurman; and necklace by Maria Black from Uzerai.
The new twin set
Less Cher Horowitz, more Jan de Villeneuve. Two-piece checks have grown up: simpler, slouchier and cooler.
Wider trousers are worth revisiting. What can we say? We love the extra leg room.
Heritage tartan + Americana plaid = a sum greater than its parts. No one knows how to clash patterns quite like Sacai.
Above: Marjan wears dress (coming soon) by Sacai, boots (coming soon) by Proenza Schouler, and bag (coming soon) by Fendi.
