Checks are having something of a fashionable moment but they've always got retro appeal. Especially when they've been used in something that's as deliberately vintage as this 1950s-style check shirt dress by Tara Starlet.
This is a proper 1950s interpretation of a shirt dress, complete with cuffs, collar and the fuller skirt. There's a range of colours to choose from too – take your pick from pink, the powder blue shown below or red. Each paired with a contrasting black set of chunky buttons and belt to toughen up the look slightly.
Made from 100% cotton, this dress is the perfect way to stay and look cool this summer, and hopefully for many more summers to come.
Even better is that the dress is currently reduced in price: pick one up for £65.
