Winter and fall are prime plaid and flannel months. Not only are the fabrics typically super warm, but they are also super versatile when it comes to colors and outfit pairings. While a super handy thing to have in your closet, plaid isn’t always known for being the most fashion forward. A fact that I, for one, completely resent. Like tons of other items, plaid can be a super casual piece of clothing or used as a statement piece in slightly more stylish outfits. If you’re looking to get some use out of your favorite plaid items before spring, try these great tips.
1. Warm Things Up With Some Fur
Adding fur to an outfit automatically ups the glam factor no matter what it’s paired with. Any simple winter outfit featuring a pair of jeans and a plaid shirt can be enhanced with faux fur vest. Not only will it keep you warm, but it will transform a simple outfit in a super fun way.

3. Break Out The Pants
It takes a bold gal to have the confidence to rock plaid pants but when done right, they look absolutely amazing. While the pants in this outfit have been paired with layered shirts and matching red accessories, you can easily pair yours with some nice flats and a sweater. Your boldness will definitely be appreciated.

4. Skirt Around
I’m a huge fan of pairing a casual piece of clothing with something a little more formal and stylish. The midi tulle skirt and cute heels look perfect when paired with a plaid shirt. Every single mismatched item comes together to create a beautifully cohesive outfit.

This outfit is super simple. Faux leather pants and black boots allow for all of the attention to be drawn to the plaid shirt and blazer combination. These pairings are fun, chic, and add some much-needed brightness to any winter day.
