How To Wear Plaid Shirts

If you know how to wear plaid shirts, you can really diversify your wardrobe. Whether you want to dress up or go for a more casual look, you can do it with your favorite plaid shirts. These few simple tips will have you on your way to putting your plaid shirts to good use.

  1. Pair your plaid shirt with a T-shirt and jeans. You can pair almost any plaid shirt with a white T-shirt. You can either button up your plaid shirt or leave it unbuttoned for a more casual look. Pair this look with jeans and you can't go wrong. Any color denim goes with almost every plaid shirt. For a more retro look, you can wear your favorite graphic tee under your plaid shirt.
  2. Dress up your plaid shirt. To get a dressier look, you can wear your plaid shirt with a pair of khaki pants. You can then layer your plaid shirt under a sweater and even add a tie if you want to take it up a notch. If you are going to wear a tie with your plaid shirt, make sure you wear a solid-colored tie. You don’t want a pattern in your tie competing with your plaid shirt. This is a great look for work or if you are just trying to achieve a dressier style.
  3. Dress for the weather. If it’s cold outside, pairing your plaid shirt with a down vest is a great way to stay warm and look great at the same time. Just make sure your vest matches your plaid shirt. If you don’t already own a down vest, it’s a good idea to buy one that is neutral in color so it matches more of your plaid shirts. You can also wear a stylish zip or button-up jacket over your plaid shirt. If it's a bit warmer out, you can always roll up the sleeves of your plaid shirt.
  4. Nothing says "cowboy" like a plaid shirt. Even if you’re not a cowboy at heart, you can always pretend. Pair your plaid shirt with some cowboy boots, a cowboy hat and a big belt buckle. You’ll be ready for a night on the town in no time.
