Love the cool, clean 1960s look of this black Chelsea Girl check dress from River Island.
After some odd seasons, the new Chelsea Girl collection seems to be getting into its stride with some great sixties-inspired pieces, from the velvet swing dress we featured last week to this smart black and white number.
It's the classic sleeveless shift shape in an equally classic black and white check print. The black trim at the collar and as pocket-style details helps it look extra sharp, while the button back finish (see below) is another nice detail.
You could wear the dress now in the September sunshine and then layer it up with a polo neck and tights to see you through winter. In fact, it's such a timeless piece, it'll probably see you through many more seasons to come.
Something of a bargain too. Order it for £28.
