Why where one piece of plaid when you can wear two? That pretty much sums up my motto when it comes to wearing plaid these days. I used to live in a rotation of plaid button down tops but, I decided to retire the look about a year or so ago. Not gonna lie, I still love a good Rails plaid top moment (primarily, because they are so dang comfortable,) but for the most part I’ve given most of my plaid tops a lengthy vacation.
However… I’m always going to be a fan of a plaid pant. They’re polished, sophisticated, and if they’re neutral, lend themselves well to print mixing. For this look, I went with navy and green plaid pants. I knew I wanted to wear this black and white checked top with it, but needed something to separate the two pieces. So… I layered a trusty white button down underneath – viola!
