Dress of the Day: Pink check shift dress from Dorothy Perkins

Check_dress Yes, yes, we know what we’ve said about tartan in the past, but The Fashion Police can be fickle, and although we still hate the traditional “Royal Stewart-esque” look (especially on trousers), we’re not adverse to a large check, in a less “loud” colour scheme, and we find we’re not adverse to this pink check shift dress from Dorothy Perkins, either.

The pink is certainly vivid here, but the soft grey helps mute it, leaving you with a look that’s fairly modern and somehow perfect for winter. If you like the shape of the dress but not the colours, meanwhile, it’s also available in more classic looking black and grey versions.

This is £35 at Dorothy Perkins.

    I love the shape of the dress. I even love the colors – but one detail keeps putting me off, and that is the strip of material across the waist. I really wish they had not made the tartan diagonal in that spot. It just looks so… choppy.
