Checked Shirt

It seems there has been a big movement in the past 9 months towards the preppy look (or if it was 'around' before then I had my eyes shut) - cue checked shirt and jumper over the top. I first became aware of 'this look' via Michelle from My Fashionable 40s who posted on Avenue 57 (pic of her look).

Here I am today in that 'uniform' - I love the ease and comfort of this outfit, it's not going to win any style awards but I am happy!


Here is my shortlist of checked shirts and chunky knit navy jumpers available today

1) Matalan - £12
2) ASOS - £25
3) Mango - £34.99 - LOVE THIS
4) River Island - £25


5) Mango - £29.99
6) Topshop - £45.00
7) ASOS - £35
8) Whistles - £65 - HEAVENLY


Have you embraced 'the uniform' of many this season? I would love to see you post on Avenue 57 if have.

Fiona

  1. Hi there! I love your outfit, very casual chic and a really versatile look for all seasons too! I have the fugly boots in purple suede, I too got them in the sale last year after seeing Avrils post and I also got a khaki and brown pair too! xxx

    1. Purple is marginally better than brown - they are so not me that I feel weird in them. Yes Avril and I bought at the same time!!!!

    1. I am wondering how to jazz it up/wear it in the summer! It's been sat redundant in my wardrobe for 3 years!!!

  3. I am going to be trying this at some point Fiona...watch this space. Avenue 57 is casualing me up in a way I never thought would happen. (Think I've invented a new word there...)

    1. Casualising - like that home made word! I love it that we all have room for style changes in our life :-)

  4. I am really getting into the mannish look, but my husband isn't so keen, keeps asking if I'm batting for the other side!!

    1. LOL LOL I think my husband may have said that to me before and 'are you going to work on a building site'?

  5. Absolutely love this outfit on you ... you do look really comfy and cosy. It's not a look that I plan to embrace however ... having spent 14 years of school in checked shirts, I just can't go back there again! But I do love the look on others x
