ALL IN THE DETAILS: Plaid for Days

The casual plaid shirt has been universal in menswear for years. From fashion retailers like H&M and American Eagle Outfitters to high end labels like Burberry and Ralph Lauren, plaid shirts have become a must-have item. Some people think that plaid is outdated and overdone, however this Fashionisto defies the odds and does plaid right.

This Fashionisto knows how to look perfectly put together by sporting a plaid button-down shirt and light gray shorts. The colors of orange and blue in his shirt add more character to his outfit, brightening up his look. One of my favorite fashion trends this summer is plaid. His plaid shirt is great for any occasion, whether you’re heading to work or going out for your birthday dinner. Having a versatile outfit like this is a must as it can be worn to many different occasions.

Personally, my favorite part about this Fashionisto’s outfit is his shorts. You can never go wrong with a good pair of shorts. The gray color is very fashionable and the light crinkle of the fabric adds a touch of simplicity to his outfit. His shoes are also a great addition to his ensemble. The leather lining and cream color makes his outfit more summer-chic! Boat shoes are great for summer and are perfect to hang out in by the water!

How To: Follow this Fashionisto’s look by pairing your favorite plaid shirt with basic shorts. A classic pair of shorts is a must-have this season, especially in the warm summer weather. Complete the outfit by slipping on boat shoes and accessorizing with a black messenger bag and a silver watch. This outfit is clean and simple and can be worn during many fun events over the summer!
