Welcome back plaid; long time, no see! The last time plaid was a fashion trend was probably in the 70’s, and by the 80’s it was a child’s worst nightmare as it was usually paired with extremely large butterfly collars – a trend I hope stays in the grave forever. Today, plaid is chic, cute, and perfect with boots. So what makes the perfect plaid shirt? It must be feminine, fitted, and light. Your husband or boyfriend’s lumberjack plaid shirt that looks so handsome on him will look dorky on you. Secondly, if your plaid shirt is not styled, wear a cami underneath it. It doesn’t always have to be white though, as you can give your plaid shirt a pop with a wisely chosen solid color cami.
A great plaid shirt also deserves a great pair of jeans. Skinny jeans, flats, and a solid color scarf with your plaid shirt have the potential to create one of your greatest fashion hits. Not only will be you stylish and comfortable, you will also be warm as the fall temperatures start to feel nip at your heels. In this case, adding a great leather jacket to your ensemble will complete your look with flair. This look is easily interchangeable with boots, and especially riding boots. You can ride this style right into winter, adding a Polo Assassin winter coat for good measure. Now that you have a few ideas how to get in on the plaid fad, it is time to go shopping!
