Best Bet: Check It Out


The fall runways were rife with autumnal plaids, from DKNY to Zero + Maria Cornejo to Vivienne Westwood. But off the catwalk, bold checkered prints can end up looking more lumberjack than luxe. This full-skirted dress by Japanese designer Yuki allows you to embrace the trend in a way that’s more understated than, say, lipstick-red buffalo-check. The versatile black-and-white print can be paired with a blazer for work or dressed down with leggings and boots for the weekend.
