How To: This Fashionista’s ‘dress’ is actually just an oversized plaid button-down! To recreate this look, search for the perfect oversized plaid button-down. You could try thrifting men’s flannel shirts from a local thrift or consignment store. Cinch in the waist with a thin belt, like this one from South Moon Under. Another alternative is this plaid shirt dress from H&M. If you’re not feeling the shirt dress concept, try this plaid wool dress. Pair either of these looks with over-the-knee socks and oxfords or boots.
