I love the look of plaid for fall, but it often ends up looking a bit too loud on its own. My solution? Layer it! Seeing just a peek of plaid is all you need to get the effect you’re going for, and also allows you to play with color and texture with the rest of your outfit.
An easy way to pull this off is with a plaid button down shirt and an open front cardigan over it. I belted the sweater to make the silhouette more streamlined and interesting, and to reduce the bulkiness that usually comes from layering sweaters over other pieces. Skinny jeans and booties keep the overall look clean and lean. Wear it to work, dinner, cocktails, or even Thanksgiving!
