    A wardrobe staple for everyone, a quality vintage shirt in a flannel check is perfect for buttoning up to go anywhere requiring a smart-casual look.


    Once you've got one, realising the layering potential of the vintage staple will change your wardrobe a million times over (or, as we're showing you, at least four ways.)

    Whether you're getting bored of your own clothes or need a reason to justify buying another shirt, this styling blog has you covered. Go nuts buying more check patterns, because here's four ways to wear a shirt that will never go out of style. 

    UNBUTTONED

    What can we say - it's a classic! Unbutton the shirt and pair it with your fav band tee, plain white tee or whatever happens to be clean. Shop our selection of vintage t-shirts here.

    OVER A HOODIE

    A more winter friendly on the unbuttoned shirt look, popping your favourite vintage shirt over a comfy sweater adds a grunge edge to the usual hoodie and jeans style. You can buy the yellow Champion hoodie Mitchell is wearing here.

    UNDER DUNGAREES

    Traditionally worn with a tee underneath, we've updated your overalls with a shirt underneath to give a more adult vibe. As we speed towards winter, a flannel shirt is so much warmer under your dungarees than a plain tee. Shop our selection of mens dungarees here.

    UNDER A TEE 

    SSo you've heard of wearing a shirt over a tee, what about wearing your vintage shirt under your fav t-shirt. We know, it's genius. This style was found everywhere during 90's grunge and can be your new look too. Shop our selection of sick vintage t-shirts here.

    It's one of our best sellers, the Ollie dress is handmade from vintage Ralph Lauren shirts into a one of a kind strappy slip dress. Always made in the UK, always in a different shirt style from the next, this bit of rework has seen us through summer in style and with ease, because there's nothing worse than being layered up during the heat. 

    A slip dress is one of our favourite styles to see back on trend this year, as styling the simple dress can be done in so many ways - each to a customer's unique fashion point of view. For this styling series on the blog, we're getting members of our team (this time photo assistant Toni McCoy-Hopwood) to show off different ways to rock some of our best vintage pieces. 

    OVER A TEE

    Go for the 90s look by placing your slip dress over a cute tee, for a pop of colour and a more casual kind of style. You can buy this vintage lime crop top here.

    WITH A BELT 

    This styling choice is all about the accessories - by bringing in a belt you can change the slip style of the Ollie dress to fit in at the waist. Piling on patterned accessories is a great way to contrast with the block colour of this particular Ollie, and you can buy the leopard print denim jacket Toni wore here.

    TUCKED INTO SHORTS

    When you're tired of strutting your stuff in an Ollie slip dress, remember you can always access a bit of versatility from your purchase by tucking it into shorts or jeans. This way your pretty little dress can become the perfect vest for rocking as part of jeans and a nice top. Or in this case, shorts and a cute top. You can buy the JNCO shorts Toni wears here.

    In line with our reuse and recycle ethos outlined in our eCow promise, our rework collection takes out of date vintage and updates it to new styles, all handmade in the UK. Customising your style with one of a kind pieces is reflected in everything we do and most recently, in our collaboration with Donk, a Manchester based design house. 

    The launch of the collab this month in our Manchester store went down a storm and we're working on getting Donk to the masses before the end of the summer. 

    To see more from Donk follow the brand on Instagram and check out the video below for a BTS on how they turn boring vintage into bang on trend looks.
