The other day I was doing some Spring cleaning and I came across one of my favorite plaid shirts. Plaid shirts have actually been one of my favorite pieces to wear for a while now. Not only are they super versatile because you can easily dress it up or dress it down, but it’s a classic way to add some color to your wardrobe during the Spring/Summer.
So here is one way to way to wear an essential plaid shirt this season!
The Spring Plaid Shirt
Just like any other wardrobe essential in menswear, certain pieces are considered seasonal for a reason.
During the Fall/Winter I like to wear plaid flannels that have earth tones like browns and greens. Then, during the Spring/Summer I like to wear more cotton and linen plaid shirts with bolder colors.
Similar to any other statement piece, it’s best to keep things simple so that the shirt can stand out on it’s own. That’s another reason why white denim jeans are such an essential piece for every stylish guys wardrobe, because it compliments bolder pieces so well (more on that later).
Also, whenever I’m wearing a plaid shirt that has a variety of colors in it, I try to limit the amount of colors that I wear with it. For instance, the only other colors in this outfit is just navy blue and white.
This will also help you avoid looking like you’re trying too hard to match because that is definitely a novice move!
