Although fall officially started on September 23, the season truly does not start until the leaves change color and the temperature becomes cooler. In fashion, each season has its own characteristics dress. In this season, plaid is a major hit in dresswear, especially today. There are many options to chose from with a variety of colors, patterns, and clothing items. So sit back and listen to helpful tips that are displayed below.
For the comfy and casual: If you like to be comfortable wherever you go, then this is for you. Plaid shirts, especially flannels, are very comfortable to wear and warmer than a regular shirt. Dress it up with a scarf and some boots or opt for a longer shirt, leggings, and knee high socks for that dressed down vibe. The great thing about this shirt is that you can choose whether to button everything, go partial way, or don’t button at all. If you’re feeling edgy, wrap the shirt around your waist.
The “Preppy” Look: If you are going somewhere more classy but you still want to feel comfortable while sporting a plaid shirt, then it is best to go for this style. For this look, wear a sweater over your shirt, but remember to display the collar and sleeve cuffs. If you are not a sweater type of gal, replace it with a cardigan or blazer. Make sure to color coordinate the sweater with the shirt. When in doubt, wear neutrals with plaids. They go with everything! When wearing the classic dark green plaid pattern, customize it with a green, navy, or black sweater. Personalize your outfit with either boots or your favorite pair of Tom.
Let's Get Mad for the Outer Layers: This one is for both the plaid lovers and those who want to like plaid, but they feel it doesn’t look good on them. Preposterous idea… Anyway, there are other ways to wear this pattern. It can be worn as ponchos, coats, and scarves. For those whose style does not call for plaid, coats and ponchos are a great way to accessorize. Scarves are a great way to add a pop of color into an outfit and are a great accessory to match with the mood of the season. For those who are not a fan of plaid, stick with the basics by wearing neutral colors in the checkered pattern. These colors give a very earthy vibe, which is great to wear during this season.
If you are still not a fan of plaid, then it is best that you stick to plaid pajamas. As Tina Fey once said, “Do your thing, and don’t care if they like it.”
