When you hear plaid you may be thinking lumberjack, truck drivers and other things that don’t sound fashionable at all. I’ve actually heard women say they find this print intimidating. Thing is, it’s really not that hard to wear, I swear. If you have major fears of looking like the Brawny man then avoid the button down plaids altogether. But, before you go limiting your closet and style opportunities let’s consider the following:
- Plaid comes in different colors, sizes and types
- Plaid can be found on bags, shoes, outerwear, accessories, pants…
You have the change the way you think about plaid. It’s just another print and like all prints they’re various forms of them. So maybe that classic red plaid does make you look like you chop lumber or own a bagpipe. No biggie. Try another color or wear it in a less obvious way, like in high school I had hoop earrings that we’re plaid print. Yes, that’s a true story.
Take a look at these 6 ways to wear plaid below.
