Fore! Before Chevy Chase waged war against a gopher on the green, diamond-patterned accents were the trademark wear of golf-playing grandfathers. For this season, designers toughened up the graphic with elbow pads and animal skins, making it a perfect addition to stylish closets Newport or New Wave. At Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci paired three-dimensional checkers with knee-length shorts and sheath boots for a sleek, modern look. Whatever your style, finish with a Bloody Mary for a fashion hole in one.
