Three Ways to Wear a Plaid Shirt

Three Ways to Wear a Plaid Shirt

I was going to title this post “How to Wear a Plaid Shirt Without Looking Like a Lumberjack, the Brawny Paper Towel Guy or a 90’s Grunge Rocker”, but I didn’t, for obvious reasons.

However, the sentiment is the same.

You can style plaid shirts without being one bit brawny or grungy.  Plaid shirts are totally on trend for fall and winter.  They’re also completely wearable (and dare I say, chic?) when paired up properly.

Here are three of my favorite ways to pair up plaid shirts.

1.  Plaid Shirt + Sweater

Casual Date Night Style | For Him

Casual Date Night Style | For Him

Meet Craig.  He’s normally behind the camera around here.  He’s also my husband and today, a reluctant blog model. I’ve always joked that someday I would be styling him for the blog.  Well, that day has come.

It was a lot of fun for me to be behind the camera for once!  In all fairness, he taught me everything I know about photography.  For this shoot, Hanes sent us three ComfortBlend t-shirts along with a challenge to style one in a head-to-toe outfit showcasing my man’s personal style aesthetic.  Craig’s normal style is modern casual, he also works in a business casual office, so we had no trouble at all putting together a look including these t-shirts.  He loves a modern fit t-shirt and jeans look, it’s his typical daily “uniform”.

We decided upon a casual date night look using the red t-shirt since Valentine’s Day was this weekend.  This outfit is something that he would wear for a dinner and a movie date night.  The little bit of red peeking out from the top of his sweater is just the right amount.

Hanes-t-shirtsHanes ComfortBlend t-shirts are the brand’s softest t-shirts yet.  Craig commented on how good they felt as the first layer in his outfit.  They’re perfect under sweaters in cooler weather and will also stand alone as a nice pop of color with jeans or shorts when the weather warms up.  I like their modern fit and price.  At less than $5, you can afford to get one in every color.  They come in chili pepper natural heather, medium green heather, vermillion orange, ebony black, navy heather, Caribbean blue heather and oxford grey.  They also come in a broad range of sizes from small to 3XL.

Hanes ComfortBlend t-shirts are available at Walmart stores nationwide and online at

Freezing temps blew into north Texas last week.  Time for puffer jackets, layering and warm socks.  I even broke down and bought my very first pair of rain boots.  They’re so cute and comfy that I’m hoping for more inclement weather!
