Check Me Out


Today as I was getting ready for work, I looked into my closet and saw the abundance of checkered shirts that I have. Red, blue, white, green and in almost every other color. My obsession with checks started when I was a child. I was the girl who liked geometric prints when compared to floral. I was the girl who liked sneakers instead of heels. I was the girl who liked to wear shorts instead of skirts. I would wear a pair of jeans, some old T-shirt and throw a checkered shirt on top of it. With my sneakers firmly on my feet, I was all set to paint the town red.

There is something extremely comfortable about a checkered shirt. It can be worn in more ways than one and it adds a casual look to the entire outfit. You can wear it with sneakers, heels, flats, ballerinas or boots and still look effortlessly stylish. While checks look good in every color, it is the red one that stands out! These shirts are so versatile and so chic that it is a must have in every woman's closet.

A checkered shirt thrown over a T-shirt and denims is one of the best ways to look causal. Carry a monotone bag to break the print and you have a winner!

Wearing the shirt tucked into your denims is a perfect tom boy look. Wear flats to look causal, carry a large tote and let your hair loose to get the tom boy meets cutie look.

Feeling feminine and yet want to wear checks? No problem. Just tuck the shirt into a well fit pencil skirt and put on your highest pair of heels to look uber chic in a jiffy!

Who says you can't wear a shirt over a dress? Wear your checkered shirt over a plain dress and break the monotony of the color!

When it is too hot to wear layers, tie your favorite checkered shirt around your waist. Well fit denims and a baseball cap will add to the sporty yet sexy look.

Flaunt those long legs with short shorts and a checkered shirt. Tuck it in and wear a neutral colored belt to beat the summer heat.

Pair a checkered shirt with a feminine skirt to bring out the playful child in you. Complete the look with boots and you are all set for that date.

Feeling bold and want to flaunt your never ending pins? Then this is the look for you. Team an over sized shirt with a bright stand out belt and slip on your favorite pair of ballerinas and get set to rule the fashion scene.

How do you like to wear your checkered shirt?

  2. I am a big fan of checkered shirts. Even better if they are old and faded. I don't know why, but a T-shirt inside and the very act of rolling up its sleeve makes me feel happy :) Oh, I just forgot! Checkered shirt with jeans, a high ponytail and hoops..what do you say?!
