ALL IN THE DETAILS: Just a Tad of Plaid

Whether it be that you’re heading to work or making your way to a good ole fashioned summer barbecue, who doesn’t love an excuse to dress up? I always take advantage of any opportunity to look nice and this Fashionisto certainly appreciates this as well. You can get that vibe right off the bat when you see his nice button-down plaid shirt. Plaid is a versatile pattern that can be worn in a variety of formats. In this case, you can dress it up but you can dress it down as well.

Button-downs instantly add a nice flair to your look, but plaid spices things up a bit. Just a tad of plaid is all you need to take your look to the next level. It makes your look more clean and composed. A light plaid shirt is also perfect for summertime when you’re in desperate need of an airy shirt to survive the heat and humidity. By layering it over a simple T-shirt you can achieve a classic but cool look that is ideal for practically any event.

Matching your nice button-down with a pair of khakis maintains the classic appeal, but also adds an air of professionalism as well. Accessorizing with a nice pair of neutral shoes and a sophisticated watch ties everything together. You can never go wrong when you add a tad of plaid!

How To: To achieve an effortless looking outfit like this one, it’s actually quite simple. If you have any upcoming events on your calendar, this should be your go-to look since it’s so easy and stylish. Throw on a button-down, preferably a light plaid to achieve the perfect summer look. Layer it over some khakis or a colorful pair of shorts and to complete the look finish it off with a few sleek and modern accessories.
