If you asked me what I think the key items in one's wardrobe should be, I would say to you that the red checkered shirt is definitely one of them.
I don't know what it is about the shirt, it may be the overexposure of the piece, the fact it can be styled in so many ways or that it just boasts chicness in an effortless way.
But whatever reason it is, I personally think the shirt is a timeless piece and that's why I've been on the hunt for the perfect one for ages and finally found it.
I styled it here with some faux leather trousers and pointed boots. I didn't mean to dress like a smoothie of Southern meets punk rock meets girl-from-the-7-Kingdoms-modernised.
But oh well, this is just one of those said 'many ways' the plaid shirt can be worn as.
