The key item here is the plaid shirt, so have your pick whether you’re going for a traditional pattern or a modern one. Tulle skirts, silk skirts, satin skirts, lace skirts, sequin skirts, accordion skirts in whimsical, soft, and touch-enticing fabrics can be great to dress up your plaid print tops. For an edgy vibe, pair your plaid top with a leather pencil skirt or accordion skirt creating a modern yet “tough girl” look. For a flirty vibe, go for tulle and sequin skirts with a party-ready vibe to create a lovely juxtaposition with your casual plaid shirt. Just finish off the look with pumps, ankle strap pumps, or ballet flats.

  1. Wear your plaid skirts or trousers with sexy tops to create a modern style.

Instead of resorting to crisp button-down shirts, off shoulder tops, off-shoulder tunics, crop tops, bandeau tops, and sheer tops create a modern look when paired with your plaid bottoms. Like fashion blogger Micah Gianneli, show off your curves with leather bandeau top paired with a plaid print pencil skirt and just top your outfit with a leather jacket and leather boots. To make your party outfit look classy and sophisticated, then copy Jessica Rick’s style of wearing a classic off-shoulder top with a plaid print midi skirt and complete your outfit with a pair of golden pumps.

  1. Opt for dressy or even casual bottoms perfect for a casual party look.

Denim shorts, silk pants, sequin skirts, and leather trousers will look great with your plaid tops. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, opt for a modern pattern of your plaid top and wear it with your denim shorts, suede jacket, bucket bag, and trendy sandals. Or, like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, opt for a casual style of sequin skirt and wear it with your tartan shirt finishing your looks with an edgy pair of boots perfect for clubbing.

  1. Wear statement accessories with plaids.
