Professional Plaid

While plaid is often synonymous with casual style, with appropriate styling you can incorporate this trend into a workplace-appropriate outfit.

When styling a plaid top for the office, the key is to create a sleek silhouette with clean lines by:

  • Pairing your plaid top with a simple, crisp piece on the bottom such as a pencil skirt or trousers.
  • Tucking your top into the waistband of your skirt or pants for a chic, buttoned up look.
  • Pulling colors from the plaid pattern and incorporating them into your accessories. For example, we styled the above outfit with pumps that compliment the burgundy stripes in the plaid pattern.
  • Focusing on a single piece of statement jewelry, like a bold necklace or a stack of bracelets. For extra style points, match the metal of your jewelry with the hardware of your bag.
