Let’s face it, your wardrobe is incomplete without a checked shirt of some kind. Whether you wear it to work or while lounging, every girl owns a checked shirt, but nothing else of the checked variety. We play hard when it comes to tribal prints, florals and even graphics, but when it comes to checks of any kind, I feel like we leave them out of the lot. So when I decided to do this post, I got a lot of ‘Aw, you look like a little Scottish girl‘ but once you get past that, it’s really a trend you need to try more often.

The simplest way – A checked shirt

Instead of wearing your shirt the boring way, make it more street and tie it around your waist over distressed jeans. Try the trend with your basic maxi, leggings, shorts or pretty much anything – it will work!

Dress ’em up

Move your check love from your shirt to your dress. A checked dress like this could be your go-to for anything from breakfast, lunch, brunch and even work – Versatile AF

Felt that checks were more of a day thing? You thought wrong, sunshine! Make like the KASH girl and add some slits to your checks. Pair it with shorts, your favorite sling bag and heels and take it out to party.
