Plaid is often categorized as “the look” of fall. Needless to say, plaid is still worn by many outside the designated time between September and November. With February approaching, this Fashionisto illustrates how fellas can effectively rock plaid in the semi-awkward transition months between winter and spring.
This look is contextually phenomenal. His plaid button-down is completely appropriate for the transition in seasons due to it’s color hue. In the fall, plaid tends to play more of a rugged role due to it’s dominance in red and black color schemes. Plaid can transform into a more playful and versatile look however, with brighter and cooler colors. This Fashionisto subtly hints at the coming of spring, yet still manages to satisfy winter weather dress code.
His chestnut colored sneakers are such a refreshing distraction from the blue of his shirt and denim jeans! For a more urban-street and cold weather friendly look, pair your plaid with these standard Timberlands and this slouchy beanie from Urban Outfitters.
Hint: Chestnut is an extremely versatile color and can neutralize an outfit with bold patterns (such as plaid) and/or radiant colors. A rule of thumb is to always pair your chaotic outfit with some neutral solids. Chestnut colored pants or shoes can usually do the trick!
