I received such great feedback after this post that I decided to do a similar format again this week, but this time focusing on a closet basic: the plaid shirt. Obviously, this is a classic that you can wear alone with denim & booties…but it’s also ideal for wearing under your favorite knitwear & blazers. I prefer softer fabrics in flannel or a woven textile like rayon or Lyocell – I find that these are easier to layer with & have better drape to them (which makes them more flattering).
Today I’m sharing 4 different ways that I’ve worn plaid shirts in the past & I’m recreating the looks with affordable pieces you can shop now! I’ve included a good mix of both casual & polished looks for you here, so hopefully there’s something for everyone. And if you’re looking to buy more of this wardrobe staple or if you want to add more to your closet, I’ve included a round-up of the best plaid shirts in the scrolling bar below.
