Wearing Plaid Bottoms Is a Doddle When it comes to prints, checks or plaid is the most popular pattern. Coming from medieval Scots, this print is still widely popular in its original design and has already been used in lots of new modern iterations. Despite that, many girls still stay away from wearing plaid trousers because they think that styling and wearing this bottom is quite tricky. Is it what you think too? Then our tips below on how to mix and match plaid bottoms in your outfits will surely come to help. To start from the basics, consider the size of the trousers. To look great, your bottoms should fit you properly, otherwise, the print will deform and you will look tacky. Consider the pattern, too. Bigger checks look fuller and therefore, they better suit slim and sporty girls, whereas girls with curvy bodies should opt for the small and mid-sized cage in darker shades and more subtle designs. When it comes to colour matching, don’t overdo it with diversity. Plaid trousers are attention-grabbers by nature, therefore it’s recommended to wear them in outfits with no more than two other colours. To give you some ideas, try wearing them with solids. Or, you can break down a monochrome outfit. Straight-leg plaid trousers, for example, work perfectly with a turtleneck, leather jacket, and court heels in black. For a bolder touch, you can pick neutral plaid trousers and wear them with top items and shoes in brighter colours like fuchsia, grass green, or mustard yellow. Besides, plaid trousers look amazing with a matching jacket or blazer in checks. Just choose a top in basic or vibrant colours to pull together an understated or edgy look. Speaking of trouser colours, black, brown, grey, and beige plaid trousers are good for both professional and everyday looks while some richer and brighter shades or models with contrasting grungy patterns are better for casual and street style. Staple white shirts, humble tees, stretchy long-sleeves, and turtlenecks are foolproof tops to pair with plaid trousers for any occasion. While high-waist wide-leg models have a vintage touch and some dramatic feel to them, making them fit for formal and evening events, tapered and cigarette trousers look more casual and off-duty and plaid culottes will keep you on the fashion edge this season. To make your plaid trouser outfit complete, finish it with a pair of trainers, heels, loafers, or chunky boots depending on the occasion. Pastel and neutral colours are always a winning choice and contrasting shoes are a nice idea to give your look a catchy twist and make it more unique.
