For the rest of us mere mortals who can't get away with wearing a top as a dress, check out French Connection's covered up way of wearing a check shirt:
Their version is a more fitted shirt, worn open over a tshirt, and teamed up with a pair of jeans.
If you want to go for the over-sized shirt worn-as-a-dress look (jeans or leggings are optional!!) check out the selection of looser-fit shirts from the high street below:
- If the shirt looks too loose, try adding a belt to make it a bit more fitted at the waist
- If you're going for a bright check, go easy on the accessories as some of the coloured check patterns are so bold they stand out enough on their own
- To keep the look feminine, wear with heels. Boots and trainers are a no-no unless they're cowboy-style boots and you want to go for the "country" look.
- If you're wearing the shirt open with a top underneath, stick to a plain tshirt. Too many prints and patterns layered up will clash badly!
