Grunge is back and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. At Free People, we love the rugged appeal of a good old worn in plaid shirt to dress up or dress down in. There are so many ways to wear a plaid shirt and we get excited just thinking about all the fresh possibilities. From denim and leather to paisley and neon, plaid goes with just about everything in your closet. Choose one in the classic red or blue tones, or think a bit more out of the box with a plaid shirt that has unexpected pops of bright colors like orange, purple or green. Who said plaid had to be basic? And when all else fails, trying your plaid shirt around your waist is an effortless and easy way to pull together a basic denim and tee look. Add a brimmed hat and you have a go-to outfit that you will be sure to keep in heavy rotation each and every season.
