Plaid is all over the place this holiday season. Preppy plaid, flannel plaid and even ruffled plaid are dominating the racks at some of my favorite stores. One of my go-to, staple items is a plaid button up shirt.

Doing casual plaid is easy. Throw on a plaid button up with a pair of jeans and boots. It looks polished, yet still relaxed. Throw on a puffer vest to keep warm or just to “rugged-up” a look. Layer a plaid shirt with a striped or polka dot sweater to create a more preppy, playful outfit.

Dressing up plaid is so much more fun! In fact, I’m hosting a little get together this week and am planning an outfit around a plaid button up from J. Crew. I still haven’t gotten my hands on a sequin skirt but absolutely love the idea of pairing plaid with sequins, sparkles or any other type of fancy skirt. Here are some of the looks I’m striving for with my plaid .
