One of the most common complaints that we girls have is "Omg! I have nothing to wear!!". I completely understand it because I say it way too often. My wardrobe is just never big enough for me. However, there is a way to cheat and make it seem like you have way bigger wardrobe than you actually do: creating different outfits using one item. Today I am going to show you how I turn this ONE Plaid shirt into FIVE different outfits.
The formal look:
Here we pair this plaid shirt with a high waist skirt. By completely tuck the shirt in we create a formal office look. Accessory is extremely important because it helps finish the look. For a more conservative look you can add a pair of black tights.
The Casual Look
The most common way to style a plaid shirt is probably with ripped jeans. However, the tip when wearing a loose shirt and a ripped jeans is half tucking. Half tuck defines your waistline just enough without being too formal. I changed the necklace from previous look to a more slender one in order to make it less formal. To make this basic look more fun, I played around with colors a little bit. My favorite FURLA purple cross body gives the look a feminine feel and it blends in perfectly with the red plum color from the shirt. The yellow Halogen flat is fun and definitely became the highlight of the entire look.
The Dressing Down a Smarter Look
There will be times when you find yourself going to events or places that you don't want to look too formal nor casual. This look is perfect for those occasions. Adidas sneakers are must have items on your shoes rack. Versatile and comfortable, these sneakers go with almost anything and will give a retro touch to every outfit they're worn with. Once again tucking the shirt in completely made the look more formal. However, changing the black skirt into a denim high waist and using a smaller cossbody definitely made it more chic and casual.
The Sexy Look
When you think sexy, you think crop top. For this sexy look, I pair the shirt with a crop top and a high waist jeans. These items allow you to show off your waist line without being too revealing. The trick here is to find the perfect color match with your plaid shirt. The lace up heels makes the look even sexier and hotter especially when this item was one of the hottest trends of the year 2015. Also instead of wearing light pink lipstick, I changed the color to my favorite of all time Tomford RubyRush. Red = Sexy!
The Cool Look
The use of black leather definitely helps create a strong outfit. I used 4 leather items to complete this look: black leather jacket, leather cross body bag, leather boots and leather ban watch. By layering the crop-top, bottom up the shirt but not completely and then put on the leather jacket, you created a completely mysterious and cool look. Also instead of using gold jewelry, which is a warmer color, like previous looks, I used silver instead on this one. Silver definitely gives a cooler feel than gold.
So that were my 5 ways of wearing a plaid shirt. I hope this tutorial helped you out. Now are you ready to create your own looks!!??
