Mad For Plaid: Winter Plaid Outfits

Mad For Plaid: Winter Plaid Outfits

Mad for plaid. If I had a fashion tagline that would be it. Most of my other fashion choices are fleeting with few exceptions, stripes and button downs. Plaid is my mainstay, my ride or die. I don't know what first attracted me to this pattern and shirt style but I've slowly grown a collection ever since.

 

I've owned many plaid shirts that didn't make it this far. Mostly because I outgrew them literally or figuratively. Back when pink and black was my favorite color combination I found a plaid shirt to match my aesthetic. It wasn't meant for a long term relationship even though I clung to it as long as I could. With a ¾ sleeve, usually a death sentence for layering, how do you keep the sleeves from scrunching up your arm underneath a sweater???, and I bought it on the smaller size assuming my body would never fluctuate in size. I wore it a couple times out and about as an adult but conceded the color combination, which I used to love, now screamed teen a bit too loud so I gave it away for someone else to revel in. Scroll down and have a peek into all the plaid goodness.

Vintage Green Plaid:  the perfect vintage shirt

 

 

Like all good vintage finds I got this one for free through the family grapevine. It used to be the most colorful shirt I would wear and sometimes still is.

Black and Red Plaid: best plaid runner up

 

I used to think solely because of my passion for plaid I was supposed to be a lumberjack. Besides the manual labor it seems doable.

 

This is a shirt I wish my high school self could have had. Red and black is pretty close to my staple closet colors and I would have worn this shirt out within a winter.

Red Plaid: found new life as a shirt

 

Some of my favorite shirts started their life as other clothes. This shirt used to be a dress. When the buttons around my hips didn't want to button any more, my hips don't lie, I decided to chop the length to see if it could have a second life as a shirt. It worked! I either flaunt the raw hem or tuck it safely into some high waist jeans or skirts.

We just had some ginormous trees cut down in our backyard so I thought the lumberjack motif, plaid, would work well with this backdrop. I feel like plaid is timeless and can be worn in many different ways from the fancy to grungy. There is a plaid for everyone.
