9 Under $39: The Perfect Plaid Shirt

9 Under $49: The Perfect Plaid Shirt

Top Row (Boys’ Club): Woolrich Heirloom, Woolrich PembertonShe Inside
Middle Row (Feminine Details): Modcloth, Topshop, BKE
Bottom Row (Bold Brights): Forever 21, BKE, Aeropostale

This isn’t the first time that I’ve waxed poetic about plaid shirts, and it certainly won’t be the last. I know that saying “plaid shirt” may conjure up images of lumberjacks, Nirvana, and fixie-riding hipsters, but that’s just bad PR. No longer relegated to work-shirt territory, plaid shirts can be one of the most versatile items in a woman’s closet.

I love pairing boyfriend styles as a relaxed counterpart to slim, tailored pants or even wearing wool versions as a jacket over a casual dress. Plaid shirts with more feminine detailing like belts and studded collars look at home tucked into relaxed jeans, while attention-grabbing bright plaids are the perfect way to wake up a neutral ensemble.

My collage above features nine of my current favorites, all under $39 (woo hoo!). The top row contains classic, boyfriend-fit styles (my personal favorite), the second row features shirts with girlie details, and the bottom trio are bold options that play with bright color.

How do you like to style your plaid? Will I need to do more to further convince you anti-plaid people out there? Seriously, I could do this all day. Just let me open up a fresh can of PBR.

  1. Can you style my plaid? I love plaid shirts, but I feel awkwardly unfeminine in them – and slightly out of place as an Indian chic 🙂 I’ve seen someone pair flannel with a statement necklace, which was cute.

  2. I love plaid shirts and style it with skirts.Its looks good on me. Since like more last week too I got one plaid Henley shirts for my dad to his birthday.
