How to style a plaid shirt

My favorite piece of clothing this winter has got to be my red plaid shirt. Not only is red a power color that adds instant cheer to a grey winter's day, it's also super versatile - it can be layered, worn open with a basic Tee, worn buttoned up with a blazer or tucked inside a skirt like a blouse! I was going to show you an actual outfit post, but alas, four weeks of being ill does not make for a pretty face. I am getting better though, finally. Below are my two favorite ways of styling a plaid shirt.

1. Casual style

Layered with a basic white Tshirt, top two buttons unbuttoned, underneath a sweater is the version that I wear most. It's comfortable, so it's great for work, yet still looks pulled together. I can always lose the sweater if I feel too warm (which I rarely do!).

2. Chic style

Have you ever considered combining a plaid with lace? This outfit has an edgy vibe that I love! The shirt looks best buttoned up and tucked inside the skirt. Add some fun accessories, like a vegan quilted bag, chunky necklace and headband!

Do you own a plaid shirt? Btw, the plaid shirt shown above is way over my budget - mine is from Uniqlo, which I got for a reasonable price, and which is just as soft and comfortable :)

Happy Friday!

  1. Hallo liebe Duni,
    Du beweist immer Geschmack und alle Teile passen gut zusammen. Ich mag solche karierten Hemden leider gar nicht...
    Viele liebe Grüße, Synnöve

  2. Plaid shirts are so versatile! Personally, I tend to style them more casually, but your chic outfit is so cute, too!

  3. I hope you are doing better Duni. :) Plaid shirts are definitely a must have. They are fun to dress around.

  4. I like those ideas! I don't have a plaid shirt but I should get one! I hope you're feeling better. I think of you often. Sending hugs and purrs.

    1. Thank you so much, Sharla! I'm doing better, but it's slow going. sigh.

  5. I'm wearing a nearly identical grey sweater. ;) You can't go wrong with any of your choices, all classics.

  6. I don't have a plaid shirt but I like them. Everything in that first picture works for me

  7. so glad to hear you are feeling better!

  8. Really cute, I could make similar outfits from clothes I already have in my closet.

  9. I have always been on the casual side. Can't remember the last time I wore a real skirt haha Love the chucks and the denim pants!
