Check Shirts

All the celebs have been wearing check shirts as dresses...which is fine if you don't mind looking like you forgot to put your trousers on!

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:

Style tips:
- 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!
