Wardrobe Staple: The Plaid Shirt

Good news! Plaid shirts aren't just for playing in a pumpkin patch or tooling around Home Depot anymore.  Get creative and let your favorite plaid take you from day to night. Just have a look at how some savvy style bloggers add a little plaid to their lives. 

plaid shirts, street style
1. For a holiday fete, dress up a bright hued plaid shirt with a sequin skirt like Krystal from This Time Tomorrow
2. Keep things cool without getting cold by layering your plaid under a shirt and leather jacket like Blaire from Atlantic-Pacific . Just the collar and cuffs peaking out is a great surprise.
3. Go all out like Man Repeller's Leandra and put on your highest heels and longest skirt to make plaid glam. 
4. Have a model moment; combine a traditional plaid shirt with sleek black pieces and ankle booties. Image via
5.  As Rachel of Pink Peonies shows us, don't be afraid to pair plaid with polka dots. The unexpected pattern combo makes a cute casual statement for a day date.  

Chances are you already have one or two  plaid button ups in your closets, but if you don't, it is time to get shopping! Plaids are out there in tons of creative color combos. I myself like to stick to the classics (seen below), but if you want to put a little more color flair into your look check out these by Rubbish  at only $44 your could by a few:)

  14. I pretty much live in plaid button-downs. They're comfy, go perfectly with jeans and I like the tomboy-ish aspect to them.
