3 ways to wear a plaid shirt

Outfit 1, Shirt: Gap Outlet (similar, similar, similar), Sweater: Gap Outlet (favorite "similar", similar, similar), Boots: ASOS (exact). Outfit 2, Shoes: Target (exact and on sale!), Khakis: Old Navy (exact), Pearls: Ann Taylor.  Outfit 3, Shoes: Tory Burch, Skirt: JCrew Outlet (similar, similar), Necklace: c/o ElizaJay Charms (exact).  Photos edited by the talented, Kayla.


The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here lately...with the exception of 1 morning.  That morning happened to be the only time I had available to take pictures for this week.  So this is me...trying to be all Tyra Top Model. Trying not to show that the wind is blowing rain straight up in my face, but my ridiculously huge hair is kinda blowing my cover.

I bought this plaid shirt at the Gap Outlet on super sale a while back, and have been looking forward to fall so that I could wear it.  I've come up with about a billion ways to wear it (it's so versatile!)...but here are just 3 ways that I really like.




Maximize your wardrobe by wearing 1 piece in many ways!  This shirt (along with so many other items) can be worn in a casual or a dressy outfit.  So, my fall wardrobe advice is to find a cozy, cute plaid shirt, and shop your own closet to find tons of ways to wear it!

I totally agree with plaid being a perfect fall piece and versatile at that. I have two shirts and definitely want to get some more. My favorite look of yours is the second one. Geeky chic alll the way :)

I love the different ways you paired that plaid shirt! I need to invest in one and then I could layer it like you did with the yellow sweater.

I need to check out the Gap outlet near Charleston after seeing all your finds from there.

The second look is my favorite but I also love pairing shirts with sweaters! Very cute!

P.S. Your hair up top like that is just adorable...love, love, love it!!!

Kayla Peveler said...

I wish I could get a high bun like you, its ADORABLE. If you notice that shirt missing one day...... I have no idea what happened ;)

I really need to take a Sunday afternoon and pair up outfits, mixing and matching and see what I come up with!

I am loving that mustard yellow sweater with the plaid top. YES! And the pink skirt too. How fun!

Ok, so your three ways to wear leopard flats post was the inspiration behind my post today and now you go and inspire me again. I LOVE IT! I'm on a serious plaid/flannel kick right now and you've got me putting together outfits in my head. Thanks!

I like to think of plaid shirts as sort of a "neutral" in fall–I feel like they go with anything and everything! Love how you mixed it up here...especially under that sweater!

Cassi Brightforest said...

I am loving the plaid shirts this year. I really like it paired with the yellow sweater

Love the colors in that plaid shirt! I always gravitate toward reds and I need to add some greens and blues into my plaid collection. I really like it under the yellow sweater.

Caroline said...

Oh yes, I do love how versatile a plaid shirt can be! I think you picked out a really great one, and love how you styled it! Can't wait to see what you pair with it in the holiday season, I have a feeling it's going to come out and play A LOT :)

I went to a college where 90% off the student population wore a daily uniform of skinny jeans + flannel plaid shirts, so I always tried to be different and avoid the print. Only lately have I realized it looks SO sweet with flirty girly skirts, with statement jewelry, and as a layering piece! Such great tips here that will definitely be inspiring my closet!
