A favourite among men and one of the most popular prints is plaid. Be it street style looks or the red carpet, dapper men have been spotted wearing plaid many times, so much so that it is now a staple. Its versatility makes it easy to incorporate into any ensemble. Which is why guys, you’ve got to own a piece with this print if you don’t already. Sport a plaid shirt, coat, a pair of plaid trousers as your key piece. You can even work it through accessories such as a bag or even a scarf. Team WODROB shows you three easy looks to sport this print on any given occasion.

Road Trip Look

Off for a road trip? Dial into the easy breezy vibe with a casual plaid shirt. We’ve picked this navy blue shirt from Zobello with relaxed collars and a side chest pocket. Keep the chill vibe going by teaming it up with a pair of shorts, preferably in a lightweight fabric to allow easy travelling. The linen cotton shorts from Mango is perfect for this ensemble. Carry a messenger bag and a wear a pair of sunglasses to beat the heat. Finish the look with a pair of casual olive green shoes.

 Informal event look

Give a classy spin to your boring suit by sporting a plaid blazer. This plaid piece from Mr. Button is so well-tailored and we love the red and blue colour play. Wear the blazer with a solid grey Gant tee and a pair of skinny trousers from Koovs. Add a pair of white Nike Sneakers and a classy watch for a smart yet cool guy vibe.

Airport Look

Stick to neutral hues like black, navy and white when you’re not too sure how to make plaid work in an ensemble. In fact, the simpler the better. Don the black and brown plaid shirt from Superdry with a pair of your basic black skinny jeans for a perfect airport outfit. Nail the look by sporting a quilted gilet over the shirt or a bomber jacket to keep you warm. Slip into a pair of super cool and comfortable high-top sneakers in black from Koovs. Keep a track of time by wearing a classy wrist watch from Fossil and voila, you’ll be airport ready.
