THE Queen has been a style icon for decades – and this season she’s more in vogue than ever, with Balmoral tartans and heritage checks seen all over the catwalks.
Erdem, Givenchy and Calvin Klein all showed classic tweed and wool coats, while Emilia Wickstead’s homage to Her Majesty, a bright red tartan jacket and kilt, was even more obvious.
A check coat is always a sound investment: Opt for a well-made wool design in a simple straight cut and it’ll reign in your wardrobe for years to come. Monsoon Fergie wool blend check coat, currently reduced to £100 from £150
