One of the great things about plaid is that there are so many variations in color and pattern, it really can be worn every season! Recently, I picked up a few plaid pieces that I have dressed up and also simply worn with jeans. Here are a few examples of how to work plaid into your wardrobe.
1. Pair a Plaid Button Down with a Flowy Skirt – What would normally be a casual button down is instantly spruced up when you pair it with a flowy skirt. If you wear the skirt at the waist, your plaid pattern won’t look too busy or top heavy. Add a pair of nude heals and some sparkly gems and you are ready for an evening out!
2. Layer a Plaid Blouse with a Blazer – Adding a sharp blazer over plaid is a complementary contrast. A black blazer is a staple item that works with just about any plaid. Black heels and a tote create a fun and comfortable business casual look!
3. Accessorize with a Plaid Scarf – Whether you’re heading to the airport or meeting up with friends for lunch, this is a simple way to work in minimal plaid. Throw a scarf over a sleeveless tee and pair it with distressed denim and your favorite flats. This is a perfect way to add plaid to your wardrobe that will can be worked in through the winter months as well. Coats always seem to call out for a good plaid print.
Have you pulled out the plaid yet? How will you be styling it?
