The always relevant, always wearable print–plaid–has gotten a great refresh this season, and we couldn’t be bigger fans. While we can still shop for the usual classic pieces, right now it’s all about choosing new shapes, shades, and checkered fabrications with a menswear-inspired twist. Everything from houndstooth to tartan and tweed is up for grabs as the must-have wardrobe upgrades, along with button-downs, outerwear, pants, dresses, and skirts.
For this trend, we’ve been choosing classic pieces that we can wear now and every year. That’s why we adore this plaid shirt by Rails. Not only is it incredibly comfortable, but the plaid print has a unique distressed denim vibe, making it perfect for casual wear. To keep blue the focal point of this look, we paired it with dark skinny jeans, a statement coat, blue sunnies, and blue patent leather pumps. To bring a little bit of edge to the look, we chose a fun silver necklace. Perfect for wearing to work on a casual Friday or for brunch with friends.
Michael’s Styling Tip: When wearing a casual top, it’s always fun to dress it up with accessories like we did here. A bold statement coat like this one also helps to make the look more elegant.
