Plaid shirts are versatile because they’re a modern classic that can be incorporated into all sorts of outfit vibes. Dress them up or down and create fun juxtapositions for a smart casual holiday party. The key item here is the plaid shirt, so no substitutions. Plaid shirts are available in all sorts of patterns and fits so take your pick. Just about any plaid shirt will work for this look.
Here are some festive outfit ideas to get you started. All party outfits have been finished off with dressy footwear and bag — a must for this time of year. Think party pumps, ankle strap pumps, strappy sandals, or dressy slipper flats. Add sheer black hosiery for insulation.
Plaid Shirt, Jeans & Sparkle
Combine a plaid shirt with blue, black, grey or metallic jeans and finish off the look with shiny belt, bag and footwear. Semi-tuck the shirt to add structure and polish to the outfit. Add a bow tie or bauble necklace for extra festive fun.
Plaid Shirt, Black Trousers & Sparkle
Combine a plaid shirt with black ankle pants, slouchy trousers, bootcuts, culottes or wide legs. Semi-tuck or fully tuck the shirt to add structure and polish to the outfit. Or wear the plaid shirt out with black leather leggings or skinnies. Finish off the look with shiny bag, belt and footwear. Add a bow tie or bauble necklace for extra festive fun.
Plaid Shirt, Skirt & Sparkle
Semi-tuck or fully tuck a plaid shirt into a flared skirt or pencil skirt. Dressy skirts like tulle and sequin numbers create a lovely juxtaposition with the casual plaid. Finish off the look with pumps, ankle strap pumps, or slipper flats. Add jewellery, eyewear and watch as desired.
Think black moto jacket or tuxedo jacket as a topper. Or simply wear a coat to and from the bash. This outfit combination can work for a festive day at the office too. Cheers.
