Forget the plain, try the plaid. What are we talking about? Plaid shirts indeed! Autumn’s most surprising trend, plaid shirts are making a big comeback this year. Keep yourself warm in these umpteen styles and prints with a twist.
If you are looking to keep it clean but impressive, throw on a plaid shirt and team it up with a pair of dark washed denims and a bold belt and smart lace-ups. For all you experimental folks out there, play with the length and breadth of the checks and prints as well as colours.
The classic blue and green combination does the trick while brown with orange adds an element of surprise. For a bold and dynamic look, we suggest to go for bright hues paired with complementary chinos or slim fit trousers. Keep accessories light to let your plaid shirt win the show.
Layer It Up:
Glam up with a basic tee, put on a dark coloured plaid shirt and complete the look with a complementary pair of straight-fit chinos. Casual, smart and classy – this look works perfectly if you stick to no-slogan tees or the latest edgy trend of pop art prints. Comfortable and warm when the weather is slightly nippy, this layered look is bound to grab some eyeballs.
During winter, tweak the look and pair your plaid shirts in bright hues with cardigans in basic colours. Move slightly away from the norm and put in a tie or a bow tie in funky colours.
Take your plaid shirts to the work place paired with finely cut blazers and two-fold linen pants. Get the no-nonsense, impeccable look with sensible oxfords with socks or loafers in basic blacks and browns. You may also want to stick to subtle colours and tartans, ginghams & windowpane styles to avoid dubious looks from your boss. Avoid pairing it with a tie, since the shirt is a statement enough.
One last tip for all you guys daring to try this look is – don’t go overboard with mixing patterns. Keep it simple!
