How to Rework Your Favorite Plaid Shirt
Let’s face it. It is very easy to throw your favorite plaid button-up shirt around your waist and call it “fashionable.” We all know the plaid shirt is the perfect addition to your laid-back style.
However, over the years the famous striped pattern has become more versatile and can be rocked at any casual or semi-formal event. If you have a favorite plaid shirt like I do, you are probably worried that you wear it far too often, because your love for it is unreal. You might also feel clueless as to how to pair that top with anything beyond your favorite pair of jeans.
Have no fear. Here are a few simple solutions to help you rock your best plaid button-down without looking like an “Outfit Repeater” as Kate Sanders from The Lizzie McGuire Movie would say.
Wear plaid. Stay Happy.
ON-THE-GO TRENDY: Casual
This is for the trendy go-getter.
Ladies: Recently, you have probably seen girls rocking the “boyish style”, buttoned up to the last button and accessorized with your favorite statement necklace. My favorite accessories are anything gold. This gold chain peaking out from the collar makes the outfit a little more urban chic without taking away from the shirt.
Gentlemen: Cuff those jeans, roll up the sleeves and rock it with your favorite pair of leather brogues or loafers.
URBAN SUBURBAN: Semi-Casual
Take your inner city style and make it more suburban.
Throw on your favorite comfy sweater on top of the plaid shirt. Pair it with your favorite jeans or pants.
IT’S ALL BUSINESS- Semi Formal
Step it up a notch.
Add a blazer or jacket of some sort for a business casual look. The contrast in colors is sure to make the whole outfit pop. Accessorize with a necklace and a watch.
