5 Ways to Wear Plaid Shirts

Whether you’re planning what to wear to work or mixing it up for the weekend, plaids are a great way to add a little play to any day. Best of all, plaids work with little black pants, jeans, around the waist and under cardis. And with a starting price of $29, you’ll love the versatility of one or a few.

Tuck it in

Tuck it in over dark jeans, jeggings, or leggings and wear with dark booties. This look is ultra elongating – your legs go on forever! A crossbody bag adds function and breaks things up just enough.

Layer it on

Layer it on, unbuttoned, over a graphic tee. Kick off your heels, put on your trainers, and top it all off with an easy-breezy anorak.

Tie it up

Tie it up, slung around your hips. Try pattern play with an striped oversized tee (this one has strappy neck detail). Wear with your favorite jeans (released hems to cuffs). Finish the look with one more thing to swing: a pretty pendant necklace.

Work in some color

Work in some color. A good plaid has a predominant neutral or two, and the brighter accent here is pink. Pair with begonia-bright jegging and a denim jacket that’s cinched at the waist for great shape.

Get cardi cozy

Get cardi cozy in your favorite plaid shirt. Curl up with an oversized cup of hot cocoa and a good book or your dog.
