HOW TO STYLE A CHECKED SHIRT

Make this popular wardrobe item your own with our on-trend styling suggestions

Keep it simple

A checked shirt and jeans is a failsafe combination, but upgrading your jeans to high-quality selvedge denim adds an even more desirable edge. Created using traditional techniques, selvedge denim has a tighter, denser weave, which equals sturdier jeans and heightened style credentials.

Level up your loungewear

You don’t need us to tell you that loungewear has reigned supreme over the past year, but there’s a fine line between stylish comfort and downright sloppiness. Go for the former by layering your shirt over a crew-neck sweatshirt and teaming with matching joggers. Grey doesn’t look so boring now.

Take on the great outdoors

Icy weather means it’s time to bring out the big guns coat-wise – specifically, this cosy puffer coat, padded with Thermowarmth technology that’s super warm but lightweight. It’s made from recycled polyester, with a Stormwear finish so rain rolls right off. Team with slim-fit jeans and boots for outdoor style that’s a walk in the park.
