Plaid seems to have been appropriated by two camps these days: the super dapper older men with their perfect plaid suits and the trendy hipsters with their fondness for plaid shirts, beards and handcrafted shoes. It’s not exactly the plaid itself that puts them there but the way they style their outfits. So if you, like me, aren’t super dapper or hipster cool, how do you pull off some plaid? I think the key is in letting the rest of the outfit “fight” consistency a little bit. Pair tailored plaid pants with a simple button down and a crinkled scarf (like this look) or a graphic t-shirt and sneakers or even a slim-fitted hoodie with a varsity jacket over it.
