Casual Weekend Outfit Idea - Plaid Shirts for Women

Like a notorious comeback artist, plaid has returned as one of the hottest fashion trends for women -- or has it ever left the radar?

All around Seattle, as well as blogosphere, I see plaid skirts, flannel shirts, and even accessories in this wildly popular pattern.

Why is Plaid Popular? 

Plaid resembles the epitome of womens casual clothing. Think weekend wear. Think street chic. Think the most cozy, relaxed casual shirts you've ever worn. I'm sure you are thinking of plaid.

How to Wear Plaid Shirts for Women?


Thinking of grungy flannel shirts of the 90's? I think not. Instead, try a fitted button down shirt over skinnies (in my opinion, the best jeans for women), and a pair of casual boots.

The next time you are thinking "what to wear this weekend?" Try casual shirts in plaid. You'll look cool, casual and effortlessly stylish.


Aren't skinnies the best jeans for women?


They sleek up any outfit.





Are you deciding what to wear this weekend?


How do you feel about casual shirts in plaid?

  1. love this look! You know what I love skinnies atm...but I remember a time when they were considered to be dorky looking, and flares were in ;)
