When you think of plaid flannel, there’s a high chance that you immediately think back to your school days. You may have had to wear a plaid skirt with a rockin’ blazer, or you may have had to wear a plaid tie over your crisp, white shirt. If you weren’t that unlucky, you might have just watched the likes of Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen take on this look instead. Many people believe that plaid has now had its time, but we’re not on board that train. Instead, we’re on a one-way trip to plaid-ville, where we can try out the cutest ways to wear plaid flannel.
Rock the plaid pantsuit
Although the world still loves to rock denim jeans, more and more people are embracing the smart look in 2019. Pants and pantsuits are all the rage, but these outfits aren’t just left for middle-aged office workers who hate their jobs. With different colors and patterns to choose from, it’s easier than ever to show off your style with pantsuits – and plaid is just one of your options. Yes, there’s nothing we love more than plaid pants and a plaid blazer on top of a white or black tee. It’s smart, it’s casual, and it’s super comfortable.
Tie it around your waist
The best thing about plaid flannel is that you don’t technically have to wear it. Sure, it’s going to be on your body, but this is more for aesthetic reasons than anything else. We don’t think we will ever outgrow the ‘90s grunge look, which means that we have a whole host of plaid flannel shirts in our closet. Instead of shoving them over a band tee, we tie one around our waist and check out the magic in the mirror. After all, you just can’t go wrong with this look.
The oversized fashion trend is one that we hope will never go away. No longer do we have to feel constricted in tight clothing, but can instead wear pyjama-like clothing that we can pass off as fashion. This trend also works if you have a few shirts in your closet that just don’t fit you anymore. Instead of throwing them in the trash or donating them to Goodwill, embrace how big they are and turn your plaid flannel shirt into a plaid flannel dress. Team this dress with tights and boots and you’re onto a winter winner.
Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize
If you want to add more plaid into your life, you don’t always have to wear it. There are so many plaid accessories you can wear, and we love all of them. You can never go wrong with a large plaid scarf, and you can even wear a bow in your hair if you want. There are no limits when it comes to plaid. Add as little or as much as you want. The world really is your oyster!
Looking for a cute way to wear plaid flannel? Well, now you have options. Just don’t wear all of the plaid at once!
