It’s the season!!! Fall is in full swing and if you are like me you love a good plaid shirt to wear during the fall and winter months. But how do you pick the right plaid shirt for you? I’m here to help you in these easy steps.
The goal when picking the right plaid shirt for you is to make sure it fits a couple key elements. I am a fan of neutral plaids but I did find a blush pink one on clearance at Dillard’s that I just had to have and it is now my favorite. Anyway-on to the good stuff! Here’s a little recipe I’ve created for you to follow:
1. right plaid shirt: light vs dark
When choosing a plaid shirt you want it to contrast with your hair. The reason for this is because we don’t want you to blend in, we want you to POP! Creating contrast with your hair will help you stand out. If you have light hair, choose a darker pattern. If you have darker hair, choose a lighter pattern.
2. Color vs Neutral
I love a neutral plaid but I have plenty of clients that like to rock a little color! I would still apply rule #1 when picking a colorful plaid shirt. Lighter hair can pull off darker colors, and darker hair can pull off lighter colors. An exception to this is if you have a signature color, wear it in plaid and feel great!
The right plaid shirt for your body type
When you are looking for the right plaid shirt, match your body size. If you are on the smaller size you can pull off a smaller plaid print. If you are on not on the smaller size you can pull off a larger plaid print. If you pick the opposite of what you are be sure it doesn’t over accentuate your figure.
Tuck or Tie?
When you’ve found the right plaid shirt now it’s time to wear it and wear it with pride! I love to put a twist on the way I wear it so I’m giving you some inspiration on different ways to wear it! My favorite way to wear my plaid shirt is to tie it. You can also do a half tuck or the one side tuck!
