How to Wear a Plaid Shirt

plaid shirt outfit ideasSome days I just feel like allowing my inner tomboy to make an appearance. Of course, I couldn’t go full on tomboy so I added a bit of a twist with a faux leather skirt. Any day that I can rock leather AND plaid is a good day! Here is a slightly different way to rock a plaid shirt. I could have simply buttoned it up or tied it around my waist but decided to wear it open with a belt. It gave the illusion of a peplum top. I wore this look yesterday to a fashion event and I was pretty comfortable. I will do a small recap of that event in a post later this week.

    Very, very cute!!! =) I love how you cinched in the waist =) I would probably wear a plaid shirt with skinny jeans and a tank top underneath, pretty basic but cute!
