Look chic from head to toe in a plaid suit. Stylish plaid can be both subtle and eye-catching. A neutral-tone suit in plaid is a stylish choice for work. Suits tend to feature small plaid patterns in soft tones like grey, black and brown. Find suits in plaid from Lauren by Ralph Lauren Mens, Bar III, Kenneth Cole Reaction and others.
A slim fit suit in plaid looks sharp when paired with a solid color dress shirt. Dark plaid contrasts nicely with jewel tones like red, blue, green and purple. A skinny tie in a simple neutral like black will complete the look. These suits slim even more when the plaid printed pattern is very small.
A little plaid can go a long way. Instead of wearing a whole plaid suit, try wearing solid neutral pants with a plaid blazer layered over a white dress shirt. Slim fit blazers in bright plaid make a chic casual jacket for the weekends, as well. For a cute date style, women can wear a light, airy cotton dress with a plaid blazer.
When worn by themselves, plaid dress pants become a statement piece. Neutral plaid looks sophisticated when paired with a solid color shirt and a white blazer. When neutral plaid patterns are small enough, they become more of a texture than a pattern, so they can be worn with other larger patterns in colors. Always choose one larger pattern to be the dominant one.
As a playful option, a plaid suit vest can be layered over very casual shirts like T-shirts or henleys. Like dress pants, vests in plaid are a statement piece. Wear a long-sleeved shirt in a bright color like yellow to contrast with cool grey plaid. Dark patterns like navy work just as well.
