Once reserved solely for geography teachers, the humble check is back, and in a big way. Perfect for the transitional season, there is a checked outfit for every eventuality. From how to wear a checked shirt for casual-cool to a tailored two-piece for girl boss vibes, here’s how to wear checks the Missguided way:
The classic checked shirt. Wear open over a slogan t-shirt and skinny jeans for a lightweight coverup, or buttoned under a thick jacket when it gets colder. But, if you think checked shirts are only for autumn/winter then think again. Tie up the front into a bow, and wear with high waisted denim shorts for Britney vibes.

Whether it’s a classic tartan, gingham or plaid, a check skirt is always a style win. Avoid school uniform territory at all costs, by steering clear of wearing with shirts or blouses. Your best bet is to team with a slogan t-shirt or sweatshirt, which will give you a sporty vibe. Trainers or boots are the perfect footwear choice.

Want to make a statement? Go for a bold checked suit for an all-over girl boss look – Perfect for a fashion approach to workwear. If you want to give your co-ord extra mileage, then wear the pieces separately. Team your trousers with a slogan t-shirt for a chilled out daytime look, or wear the blazer over a dress to take you from office to bar.

Checked dresses can look seriously cute. Go for a pastel check mini-dress with flat shoes for a summertime look. Or, if you’re about to hit the town with your girls, checked dresses can give you glam vibes too. Go for a checked blazer dress in a wrap shape for a knockout look. Just throw on some heels and you’re good to go.

It’s getting to that time of year when you need to start thinking about investing in a winter coat. Checks aren’t going anywhere, and a checked coat makes any outfit look seriously put together. Dress up the look with heels and a dress underneath for winter workwear. Or give it a more casual air with jeans and trainers to go full off-duty model.
