There’s no disputing the fact that checked shirts are still on trend this autumn/winter. We hit the streets to snap some of London’s most stylish gents, and guess what? We spotted the checked shirt around every corner. Here are ways that the men on the street are sporting this essential piece of your autumn/winter inventory.
- Casually with jeans
Simple and effective, nothing beats a colourful check with some dark wash jeans, trainers and rucksack. And during winter the check shirt can keep you warm but just to be on the safe side, pack a lightweight bomber jacket in case the weather turns.
2. Paired with denim
Here is another casual take on the checked shirt but this time it’s paired with a class denim jacket. A big purple and navy check is a great contrast to the blue denim and shows a hint of colour on a rather grety day. The black jeans and shoes also work well as they don’t draw too much attention from our hero, the check shirt.
3. Under a blazer
The checked shirt is no longer just a casual piece you wear into town. It can work equally well as part of your work attire. We caught this commuter who was in-between meetings wearing a stylish check shirt paired with a blazer, slim dark jeans and classic brown boots. Buttoning the check shirt up to the top and adding a belt sharpens up his look and offers the perfect balance between smart and casual.
