As much as I love the Summer, transitional style into the Autumn is something I love every year. A check shirt is an item that I was missing from my wardrobe and I think it makes the perfect transitional piece. I bought this shirt from Primark as I love the colours and how well it can be layered for the Autumn. This shirt is quite over-sized on me and I was a bit unsure how to style it at first, but now I think I’ve made it work for me. I wanted to share two different ways that I wear this check shirt to create transitional outfits for the Autumn months!
For my first outfit, I wanted to layer the shirt and wear it almost like a light jacket. As the shirt is long and quite thick, it really does work well for layering. I wore the shirt with a black ribbed T-shirt from Pull&Bear, blue jeans from H&M and black heeled boots, also from Pull&Bear. I think this is an outfit that could work for both daytime and evening and the blue matches well with some of the tones of the shirt. It’s an outfit that would be saved for warmer autumnal days, and the check shirt could always be done up and tucked in if the weather got cooler.
As Autumn days can be chilly, I wanted to make the shirt work for cooler temperatures too. When this shirt is done up and tucked in, it really does make me feel cosy, especially with a vest underneath it. Here, I paired the shirt with black skinny jeans from H&M and black boots from New Look. These black boots are an Autumn staple for me and I love getting them out at this time every year. The whole outfit is comfy and cosy, ideal for colder days. A long coat works well over the top of this too, making the shirt really versatile for any temperature.
As a transitional piece, you really can’t go wrong with a check shirt, especially if it has autumnal tones. It’s an item that can be dressed up or down and worn as part of different outfits depending on the weather. I’ll be making the most of wearing this shirt over the next few months and finding different ways to style it too!
