Mad About Plaid

Plaid has been around for a while now but still somehow wriggles its way into the trends of the moment season after season! There's just something about plaid that screams comfort and adds a cool vibe to an outfit. The piece is so versatile! Whether you're at a concert, or are just out and about doing some window shopping, plaid works for just about any situation. I've added a few ideas for how to update the basic plaid button-down as well as a few options that take the fun pattern to the next level!

Switch Up Your Plaid Button-Down!

Shirt: Plaid Button-Down (Hollister)

Add This!

Tank: Lace Tank (Self-Expressions)

Add a girly touch to an otherwise boyish shaped shirt! Layer your plaid shirt over a pretty lace tank and tie the ends of the oversized shirt to help accentuate a waistline!

Shirt: BDG Button-Down (Urban Outfitters)

Tank: Embellished Tank (Urban Outfitters)

For a great summer look, add a pretty tank underneath so you can take off the button-down if it gets too hot, while still looking stylish! Finish off the look with a great pair of white denim shorts!

Plaid Options:

Herringbone Plaid Romper $19.90 (Forever 21)

Scooter Showdown Dress $89.99 (Modcloth)

Plaid Tie Shorts $19.20 (Nasty Gal)

Plaid Tailored Vest $7.99 (Papaya Clothing)
