{How To Dress A Plaid Shirt}

I have slowly embraced the plaid trend back into my wardrobe only because I think my Catholic school uniform scarred me for life. I remember getting off the school bus and sprinting home so that my friends that went to public school and didn't have to wear a uniform wouldn't make fun of me. Now {clearing throat} years later - I think I've overcome my hate for plaid and am ready to mix and match it with items that are currently in my wardrobe:
How to dress a plaid shirt
1. I have this striped dress from J.Crew and have yet to pull it out this winter. While browsing Pinterest I saw this picture and had one of those "why didn't I think to put those together?". Now I have a new outfit and didn't have to pay a dime for it.

2. I love this sweater and hoping to buy it this weekend. It's sold out online {J.Crew} but they have them here in the stores. I love the idea of pairing the plaid shirt under this sweater...

3. Plaid shirt + boyfriend jeans +

4. Camel wedge booties = the perfect casual weekend outfit

5. You could even add a graphic tee underneath for a little warmth and personal style

6. Finally, you can't go wrong with a chunky cream sweater - it goes with everything, especially plaid - a great way to tone it down a little.

What do you think? Have you embraced plaid back in your wardrobe?

  1. I have been hesitant to embrace plaid myself. Living in Texas it can easily look like farm gimmicky rather than an on trend style. I tend to keep mine understated and in layers.

  2. LOL - you have a point there about plaid in Texas - but I agree keeping it understated is best. :-)
