Plaid shirts used to strike me as too tomboyish and style-less, but now I like them a great deal, and am—since I only have one—looking to expand my repertoire. I like how they look all oversized and slouchy, like here, and though they’re a natural with jeans, they get about a hundred times chicer when you pair them with trousers (I especially like how they look with leather pants).
The color really pops against the grey here.
And I adore black and yellow together wherever I find it.
The contrasting pockets and cuffs here are fun.
I like that this one is kind of faded out.
Blue on blue is always a winner in my book.
This silk option is nicely refined.
This is just pretty adorable.
Here is one I might go for: the blue and red together is so strong.
From Frank & Eileen, a shirt brand I really like: blue and white and nicely graphic.
I am mad for the poppy color combination here.
Here’s a sweet, feminine choice.
Red and black always looks great.
And finally: a classic scotch plaid from LL Bean.
