Today I’m going to show you a few pictures of the plaid shirt I bought from Forever 21. I feel that PLAID–any kind of plaid has a special connection with those of us who grew up in the 1990s. Be it the moms in TV shows like Small Wonder or Everybody Loves Raymond, or the checkered skirts most of us wore to school (by the way, I never had this fortune), something about plaid makes it very easy-to-wear.
I decided to opt for the big checks when picking up this shirt from Forever 21, Saket, New Delhi. You can go smaller or with checks that are not spaced out. I wanted this look and thankfully found it.
Due to the length, I decided to keep the shirt open and pair it with a black spaghetti top and shorts. Since it was really sunny, it was a great time to pair it with a pair of khaki shorts (not sure of the brand) I raided from my sister’s closet. I decided to pair it with a pair of Oxford shoes from Forever 21 (that my mom thinks are better suitable for Men).
Here are the things you should keep in mind when creating your own look:
- Be individualistic when choosing the colours and length: I wanted a shabby chic-esque ensemble and so I did. If you work in the corporate environment, you can try a crisp shirt that can be tucked in.
- Plaid mufflers, skirts and dresses can all look great. You can stock up on this no-fuss fashion trend as much as you like. Make sure there is a bit of variety in your haul.
