Your campus is your runway, and there is never a lack of originality on campus here at Queen’s no matter where you are or what time of day it is. The most basic of items are worn with impeccable confidence, or with a hairstyle that gives an outfit just the right amount of je ne sais quoi.
On this warm day, this stylish student opted to wear a plaid shirt from a thrift store called Phase 2 with Urban Outfitters chinos and shoes. Without a doubt, plaid is a staple at Queen’s University whether you choose to put it on in the morning for class, casually studying at the library or transitioning into the night on Tumbleweed Tuesdays!
The plaid trend has become something of a mainstay for college students everywhere because of its versatility and variation in styles for both girls and boys. For the more fashion conscious men, plaid can be easily paired with a denim jacket or vest for cooler days and without any fuss. For a more fitted look, oxford plaid shirts at J.Crew are easy to wear under a corduroy blazer or just by themselves.
Hint: Make sure it fits on the shoulders well and button the buttons to avoid a sloppy look. No matter what style, colour or wash of plaid shirt you choose, it is important to keep it classic and not too flashy!
