"Check" you out!

Have you noticed lately the sneaky checked or plaid shirt seems to be popping up all over the shop (quiet literally)! Yes, they've always been around but now they seem to be prominent at the moment. I'm actually starting to come around to wearing them and in fact I think I might just pick up that shirt I saw in Penneys the other day (I was quiet taking with it) and for €11 what a perfect way to dip my toe into this check shirt/plaid shirt fashion trend!
So I had a thought, why not suss out how the fashion stylists of the industry are wearing theirs and Im liking it, I've discovered Women's plaid shirts are fun to wear because they are very chic yet cool. You do not have to be a country bumpkin to enjoy the look of this shirt, nor do you have to keep the shirt casual when worn. You can wear it just about anyway that you want! Just keep the look fun and sassy and you are good to go!
So here's some inspiration I found and I've also shopped around to see what's on offer on the highstreet! So get inspired girl
