And while we now know that a jacket cast in the heritage print adds the perfect amount of polish to the cosy combos we've lived in all winter, it's time to give the pattern a spring spin.
We think Sienna Miller has the chicest answer to wearing lightweight chequered pieces without looking drab: double down!
Cut is key when it comes to Miller's pants—the high-waisted, of-the-moment shape makes the classic pattern feel super-cool, and artfully clashing them with more checks lends the look further fashion cred. This particular pairing works well thanks to the varying size and style of the two prints, which stops the look skewing too matchy-matchy.
A pared-back palette helps maintain cohesion throughout, and the star has extended this to her shoes and handbag. Cast in shades of tan, the equally on-trend accessories work back into the flecks of brown in her pants.
