Have you ever wondered how to wear a plaid top? Well girlfriend, wonder no longer. Plaid is one of my all-time favorites, especially for Fall and Winter. And I’ve got no shortage of ideas for you today! You’ll never stand in your closet trying to decide how to wear plaid again! These 15 ways to wear a plaid top will have you set straight through Winter!
1. With a tshirt dress
Is comfort your jam? Then this outfit should be at the top of your list. Grab your favorite comfy t-shirt dress and then just wrap a plaid top around your waist and go. I love the look with a pair of sneaks but you could also wear it with booties or boots!
2. With shorts
Live in a warm weather climate? You can totally wear a plaid top with shorts! Tuck it in, wear it open over a detailed tee, or just wrap it around your waist! Since you’re wearing it shorts, I prefer pairing this look with booties!
3. With a puffer vest
When the weather cools down but you’re not ready for a heavy jacket, go with a puffer vest! Add a touch of glam with a statement necklace or dress it down with sneakers! (Want more inspo? See how I wore a red puffer vest here!)
4. With a cargo vest
A cargo vest is one of my top must-have fall pieces, so it’s no surprise that I wear it with another Fall staple – plaid! You can wear it tucked or untucked for a more relaxed look.
5. With mixed prints
Create a playful look by pairing your plaid with other prints. Polka dots, stripes, leopard print – nothing is off limits! Just try to make sure a few of the colors coordinate so the look is cohesive! For example black and white prints almost always pair well with other prints!
6. With a faux fur vest
Get trendy and pair your plaid with a faux fur vest! It would also look adorable with a faux fur snood!
7. With shearling
This faux shearling vest is a classic! I love the texture it adds against the plaid!
8. With a turtleneck
Want to get cozy during those Winter months? Layer a patterned (or plain!) turtleneck underneath your plaid top. Leave it open or buttoned up!
9. With a utility jacket
This is another quintessential Fall outfit. Every woman needs a good utility jacket for layering! Pop it on over a buttoned plaid top. Or go more undone with a tee too! Want more inspo? Check out how I wore plaid with a black utility jacket here!
10. With a scarf
So simple yet so cozy. I prefer wearing a chunkier scarf for this look! Just loop it a few times and go!
11. Tucked into a skirt
If you want to dress your plaid top up a bit, try tucking it into a skirt! To get even dressier, add a statement necklace and heels! For more casual looks, wear your skirt with boots, booties, or flats. And yes, you can even wear it tucked into a pencil skirt for work!
12. Under a sweater
Get layering and throw on a sweater over your plaid top! Let the tail and collar stick out for a pop of plaid! You can even roll the sweater sleeve up a touch to show some plaid on the sleeve too.
13. With a graphic tee
If you love graphic tees, wear them with plaid! I love wearing a plaid top unbuttoned over a tee or tied around my waist.
14. With a long cardigan
You can’t beat this classic pairing! Wear your plaid with a long cardi! If you cardi is long enough you can even wear the look with leggings. Hello, comfort.
15. Knotted over a dress
Although this example is a bit more springlike, you can definitely still apply this formula for Fall! Try knotting your plaid top over your favorite Fall printed or solid dress.
