What can I wear with a red plaid shirt? This is a question that has crossed my mind many times. There are days when I get dressed up and choose to wear a plaid shirt and then say to myself, “What can I wear with it?” Now for the non-fashion-oriented person, this is the perfect question because they would be wondering what kind of pants or skirt to wear with their plaid shirts or what kind of shoes they should pick up to go with it.
Before getting into that, it would be beneficial for us to realize what a “plaid shirt” is. When I say shirt, I mean outside clothes; not underwear and not shirts worn underneath the regular top clothes. A plaid shirt has two or more colors in it and the colors usually clash with one another. Although there are some that match but those shirts are very uncommon. Hence, the question that we are discussing is of the outer clothing variety. Now that we have established what a plaid shirt is, let us get to the problem at hand.
In the case of a plaid shirt, you either have to be dressed formally or in an informal way to pull off the look. If you are dressed casually, it will be hard for people to notice your plaid. A formal situation is where you would wear a tie or dress shirt with a jacket on top of it. The jacket should be either black or blue in order to match its red colors. The next outfit that we are going to discuss is the casual look but with a t-shirt underneath. With this, you would need to be dressed casually but not quite. You should be wearing a jacket over the t-shirt which you can wear long or short-sleeved. It doesn’t matter what the color of that jacket is as long as it is one of the three colors that go well together on your shirt.
In this kind of scenario, I would definitely recommend wearing a black or blue jacket with red or green pants. Why two colors? One reason is that they complement each other and don’t clash at all. The other reason is that by wearing these two colors, it would be easy for people to notice you so it would be best. The t-shirt that you wear underneath your jacket should be dark in color. This will go well with the shirt you have underneath the jacket as long as they are different colors. If they match so you will probably not even need it but that’s better than having something too bright to go with your jacket.
