Checks On The Beach

 

I thought the 90's trend of tartan 'flanno' shirts was long gone and buried in the past. If I could've seen into the future, I probably would've fallen off my chair in surprise at seeing photos of myself wearing a plaid shirt in a fashion blog post.

Over the years I've watched tartan come and go in designer collections, but I was never drawn to this fabric until now. It's so easy to wear this checkered fabric - pair yours with leather pants (or faux leather), ripped jeans, or even shorts. Wear it buttoned up and tucked in or not tucked, tie it around your waist, or just wear it open over a white t-shirt.

Tartan button-up shirts are perfect for that cool and casual look, especially now that the 90's grunge trend is back. Make your look your own by choosing a plaid shirt in a your favourite colour.

So here I was, not long ago, unable to get these checkered fabrics out of my mind and I bought a shirt. And I love it! It's so soft and comfortable, and can be worn over almost everything. I chose a red/pink based colour for my top because believe it or not, pink is my favourite colour. I layered mine over a longer white t-shirt and added the shiny leggings to give it a little edge.
