Let's Hear it for the Boys

Plaid is back! Not that it hasn’t disappeared from people’s wardrobes, but the ’90s have made a resurgence on the runways, fashion blogs and fashion sites which means plaid has come back into the style forefront. Nothing beats a plaid flannel shirt to add something extra to your outfit or just to cozy up in on a cold night. Obviously, a plaid flannel button-down shirt is perfect for this time of year to add an extra layer of warmth and style.

I spotted this Fashionisto in a black and gray plaid button-down, graphic “Billionaire Boys Club” T-shirt, olive green pants and white Air Jordan sneakers. He accessorized his outfit with his black backpack and black and white wristbands. This Fashionisto keeps it simple with the basic elements of a T-shirt, pants and sneakers while adding the plaid button-down to make his outfit more interesting. He gravitates toward darker colors and earth tones which also add to the outfit’s simplicity.

Plaid flannel shirts are easy to come by whether you look in your local thrift store, H&M or American Apparel. You can wear it like this Fashionisto over a graphic T-shirt with jeans and sneakers, or take it up a notch. Wear it as the basic layer with black jeans and boots, then add a hoodie and a leather jacket on top. Finish the look with a beanie and a scarf to give it a warm, cozy touch.

Hint: Invest in a good plaid flannel shirt. It works all year round from the cold winter days to the chilly summer nights. It’s also a great way to make a statement either tied around your waist or as another top layer. Either way, you’ll still look good.
