We all know and love the many colors and patterns of plaid, particularly in the fall. But how about a bold version?! This vivid pink plaid shirt checks all the boxes for current trends as it’s oversized and features a big bold pattern.
The Pink Plaid Outfit
I actually saw and bought this shirt IN THE STORE. How about that? With my busy work schedule, I’ve shopped online for a long time and generally have pretty good luck finding cute things, but I bought this one in person! The bold pink literally shouted out at me as I walked by and I immediately bought it! It’s all cotton–yay!–and very affordable.
These oversized shirts are so easy to style! Here are some ways to wear one:
- Wear it by itself a la 50s style–like a men’s shirt.
- Tie it in the front and leave the back hanging low, or
- Tie it in the front and do a blousy tuck all the way around
- Wear it open like a shirt jacket (aka “shacket”) with a cami, tank top, or turtleneck.
I bought it in extra small as I wanted it a little more fitted, but if you want it roomier, size up. You can’t wear these shirts wrong!
If you can’t wear pink, but like bold prints, it also comes in a bright aqua and cream color. Prefer softer tones? Check out the soft lime and white windowpane option.
As this pink plaid top goes with so many things in my closet, I decided to go matchy-matchy with this outfit. It’s fun to revert back to what used to be the only way to style a colored outfit!
The mix of bright pink and the deeper burgundy-ish color look amazing with all things in the pink family.
These twill joggers in raisin keep the look current. The fabric is soft and Tencel-like with a high waist so you can wear longer cropped tops or tie your shirt as I did without your tummy showing. They are available and on sale (so will go quickly) in several colors in regular, tall, and petite. I will definitely wear these with tees and sweatshirts this fall!
And, of course, the shirt looks great with jeans. I will absolutely wear it with my Wit & Wisdom straight-leg jeans that are slightly fitted.
I love it with the burgundy cardigan that I shared in the post, How to Wear a Cropped Sweaters.
Chunky military-style boots are still in fashion. While they just aren’t my thing, I enjoy seeing how other gals style them. However, the heavier lug soles and utilitarian styles are still going strong and these loafers combine those elements in a classic loafer style. Kind of yin-and-yang and it works! They come in a few other colors–take a look at the mustard and olive!–including all black which looks a bit more military-ish than the other colors.
They have a cushioned footbed and are super comfortable!
The next time you go mad about plaid, go for something bold like this pink plaid pattern. And do try these comfy joggers for an upscale laid-back vibe. It can be fun and easy to create a fresh fall look by looking a little outside the box.
