Checks are wardrobe staple that never go out of fashion. Despite their popularity they always give a unique and eye-catching appearance to the wearer. Here is how to wear them

Texture and design

According, the first thing you need to think about is the texture and pattern of the check. The design and texture of the check will be the deciding factor on whether the cloth is suitable for dinner date or not. If you go for a piece with small checks, set out in a uniform fashion, then, try pairing it with a pair of neutral-coloured piece for a more formal look. The small set design is going to give a less bold and cleaner look that is perfect for smarter occasions. Wider checks give a more casual look that is easy to match with a pair of skinny or straight jeans. Remember to stick with two colours so that your outfit won’t look busy. Also, you will be able to keep it as a versatile item that can be mixed and match.

Consider bright colours

Colour is an important thing to consider when choosing a check design. A dark-colour piece can make your appearance look too serious and boring.  To get that chic look, a mix of colours like red and grey shirt will do the trick.

Sleeve length

Sleeve length is an easy one to get right. Consider a long sleeve because you can turn up the sleeves in various ways to give you a different look each time you wear it. Make sure that your dress is fitted so that it will look pretty on you however you decide to wear them.

Be stylish

If you decide to wear a bright-coloured piece like red, try complementing the tone with lighter denim. But if you settle for a darker shirt, you can match it with dark grey denim. You can also try laying your check shirt with a boyfriend jacket for more of an alternative street style look, but make sure it’s fitted in order to avoid looking funny.

Be creative

Many people consider check trends as a more casual item but there are a number of ways to create looks to suit your style and personality. You can even pair it with a tie for an alternative look on a smart outfit. You can also experiment with check design, the thickness of the material and the overall length of your shirt to create unique and stylish outfits that will suit any occasion.


Check is a busy print; so keep things as subtle as possible by pairing your outfit with neutral-coloured shoe and a simple earring to keep your appearance sophisticated and edgy.

  • For an office look, layer your check dress with a one-coloured kimono jacket.
  • If you decide to wear a tie, pick a plain one in a skinny design to add an alternative edge to your outfit.
  • Wear a minimal make-up to complement your overall look.
  • When picking accessories, go for a simple design, so it won’t compete with your outfit.
