Topshop Oversized Check Shirt, Cheap Monday Roll Neck Tee Dress via Asos, Topman Striped Bobble Hat, Freedom for Topshop Eagle Necklace, Topshop Black Rucksack, Topshop Sports Socks, New Balance 410 Trainers
With Christmas over and done with for another year, it's time to get ready for SS and this year the skate trend is going to be huge. Check shirts with board shorts, beanies and backpacks and Californian causal attitude are must haves so dig out that old pair of Vans.
This outfit is skate influenced with a bit of a twist - I've minused out all the loud colours from the trend to create a more grown up and fashion forward, monochrome look but have used all the key pieces.
I started with the boyfriend shirt with its long shape giving a more modern take on just your average check shirt and paired it with a boxy t-shirt dress with a roll neck collar for a sleeker feel yet the slouchy shape keeps the cas element. The jet black against the check creates a nice mixture of texture without any garish slogans or patterns too!
Accessories are what makes this trend so a bobble beanie and rucksack were essential but it's this seasons 'it' shoe that really sets the perfect tone of sleek everyday wear.
