3 Ways to Wear a Checkered Shirt*

When The Hut Group got in touch with me and asked me if I'd like to sample an item from The Hut's new collection I had to say yes. Having scoped through their website and found so many items I loved I knew their new collection would be just as good. I chose this checkered shirt* as it's something I knew I'd get a lot of wear out of throughout the year and fits with my relaxed style.


To give you guys a good look at the shirt I figured I'd show you 3 of the ways I'd wear a checkered shirt. 

The first outfit is great for a British Summer, high waisted denim shorts with a loose fitting white top tucked in and then a checkered shirt round the waist, ready to pull on if it gets a bit chilly. Paired with my 6 year old converse which are just about still living!

Converse - Office

This outfit is the most 'me', the checkered shirt works perfectly with my old primark jeans that I spent hours ripping holes in for a 90s themed party! They've now become one of my favourite pairs of jeans as they're so comfy! A pair of worn in flip flops keeps this outfit easy and relaxed. My kind of style.

Flip Flops - Tesco (years ago)

This outfit is a favourite, I love pairing a checkered shirt with a dress to make it a bit more casual and add some colour. I've paired it with some biker boots and my new black floppy hat which I was so excited to pick up from Primark as I've been after a cheap one for months. This oufit is something a bit out of my comfort zone, but I love it none the less.

Boots - New Look
Hat - Primark

I'm really happy with this shirt, the colours look lovely together and will fit perfectly into my wardrobe, I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of it. The shirt is priced at £25, which is probably more than I'd pay for a checkered shirt, but I do think it's worth it's price as the quality is great and the fabric feels lovely and soft. I don't see this shirt loosing buttons or having to be thrown away after a month or so like something you might pick up for cheaper. I'd also say that although the shirt does gape slightly across my boobs this is something I find with most shirts and it fits well everywhere else, but I'd recommend bigger busted ladies to maybe go up a size. 

This checkered shirt, along with other items from their new collection will be released on their website soon. I'd recommend checking out The Hut as they've got some great clothing as well as beauty, sports and gifts. I'd especially check their sale if you're looking for a bargain! 

I was provided with this checkered shirt by The Hut for the purpose of a review. However all opinions are my own.

  1. I do love a good checkered shirt When I was about 17 I don't think I wore anything other than checkered shirts for about a year.

    1. I like this one cos it's quite long and not too fitted, but also not too baggy. A red one is so classic for autumn :D

    1. Yeah I've wanted one for ages but they're so expensive for something I won't get a huge amount of wear from, so as soon as I saw this I HAD to get it. This was only £8 so head off to Primark! :D

  9. my favorite one has to be the one where you tie it at your waist. i have been ABUSING that technique all summer haha. it's just so casual and playful, and makes me feel like such a city kid when it's tied over a dress like that :)
