Check material used for the making of shirts is of various kinds, each defining the diverse outfit, from the casual to the elegant.
If you like checks , the good news is that they can be worn always as long as you choose the right type of check, the colour and the garment to be worn with it.
Naturally we are not talking of cowboy style shirts in heavy material such as flannel but fresh cotton shirts suitable to be worn any time, even in summertime.
The size of the check in its various forms gives different optical effects, so that very small checks seem like a plain colour and can be easily matched up with most things.
FOR A CASUAL STYLE
A checked shirt in natural moderate colours is perfect for leisure but also can be worn in not too formal working conditions. A beige check that goes with light blue or pale yellow, all shades recalling nature and lend a casual but chic look to your outfit.Take care in choice of trousers that must be strictly in a plain colour.
BON TON VERSION
Do you remember the Prep. style of the American college students in the 60’s and 70’s? Jackets with badge, laced up shoes, checked shirts, in particular small checks in classic blue and white.
This apparel has never really gone out of fashion; in fact numerous variations have been introduced over the consecutive years.
The Vichy shirt,together with the classic ones, is suitable with a smart outfit worn with kachi trousers and a blazer or a jacket and a tie of the same shade in colour. It becomes easygoing in style with a pair of worn denim jeans!
WANTING TO BE NOTICED
if you do like checked shirts and would like to stand out, with a touch of eccentric elegance, opt for tiny checks almost invisible matching up the shirt with a striped tie. Make sure that the stripes are large; this is the rule for combining two different patterns without error….
