How to Style Summer Plaids

A plaid shirt is like that fun friend who’s always up for anything. Music festival? Check. Art exhibit? She’s in. Spur-of-the-moment happy hour? Yes, please. The options are endless, depending on how you style it. Pick your favorite (or favorites) and start planning all the places you’ll go.

Play it up for the weekend 

Plaid never takes a day off. But it does know how to relax when you do. Throw one over a comfy t-shirt dress for a laid-back look that’s welcome everywhere. Make it personal with a swingy tassel pendant and retro canvas sneakers or sparkly embellished sandals. Look out weekend, here you come!

Button up for work  

Make room for the new master of multitasking. Plaid can do stylish, professional and effortless all at once. Tuck it in for a tailored look, roll up the sleeves for a little attitude, and push it the extra mile with peep-toe ankle booties. Add some fun, fringy accents for style that works overtime.

    I sure wish you would offer more plus size tunic tops. You have a lot of cute tops in plus but there are just some of us curvy gals that would rather have tunic or hi-lo top options. I can never buy tops here because of that reason. i spend thousands of dollars a year on clothing elsewhere but would love to be able to shop with you. Please bring on more tunic or hi-lo tops?
