Playing with plaid

I must say that I am a fan of plaid print. I have a couple plaid items in my wardrobe trust me. Its a fun print to play with and you can do a lot with it. Say you have on a simple t shirt and jeans, grab yourself a plaid shirt and throw it around you. BAM! You just took your look to another level. You not only added another layer to your look but you also added a new color, print, texture etc. There is so much you can do.

Ideally some people don't generally like plaid because they think country bumpkin or western style with bell bottom jeans and cowboy boots. That is definitely not the case at all. Although that is one way of styling plaid, there are plenty of other ways to do this as well.

For example:
  • Channel your inner 90's look and wear your flannel around your waist with your favorite distressed denim and simple t shirt. It adds character and movement to complete the look.
  • Make your shirt the center of attention. Find the brightest plaid shirt you have, or any colored one at all lol, and pair it with plain colors. Wear all black or maybe white and throw on the plaid shirt to make it stand out.
  • Use you shirt as a jacket, bundle up with your plaid shirt on those days when it might be cold in the office, but hot outside. Wear a nice romper of summer maxi with the plaid shirt tied around your waist, that way if you get cold you have the plaid shirt to put on you.
  • When you are headed to a more dressed up occasion make sure to choose a lighter colored plaid shirt and tuck it into your favorite mid-length skirt. To top it off throw on your favorite pair of heels.
If you don't necessarily have a plaid shirt that is totally fine! Just as long as you have something that's plaid period. It can be your socks, pants, or even your accessories.  Like the bag I am wearing is a plaid print, so even stuff like that would work. Your center of attention doesn't have to be clothing at all. One big thing that I say is don't be afraid to mix prints! That makes it even more special lol. Like I always say you want to have fun with fashion! It's all you, do you the way you want to.

There are plenty of other ways to wear a plaid shirt that I did not mention in this post. If you would like to see a list of more ways to wear your favorite plaid shirt, check out this article on!
