It’s harvest season, and you know what that means-- Plaid is back!
Everyone has the same question about styling this look for the holiday season. “How do I wear plaid without looking like a lumberjack?” That is what we are covering in today’s blog! Let’s get started.
First, I thought it would be fun to cover some of the histories of plaid flannel in fashion throughout the decades! It’s always helpful to look into the past when it comes to fashion trends.
Checked woven wools worn by the Highland clans of Scotland gained popularity in the 17th century. In the 18th century, the farmers would make plaid shirts out of wool to keep them warm, and that is where the plaid shirt originated. From there, we saw plaid flannel grow in popularity in Europe and was worn by the masses when the industrial revolution spread throughout Europe. In the 19th century, plaid became what we know today as the flannel shirt. Flannel became popular among the grunge scene in America. Since, we have seen flannel on surfers, skateboarders, farmers, lumberjacks, and musicians alike! Who doesn’t love a good flannel?
To wear modern-day plaid there are a few ways to rock this look without looking like an 18th-century lumberjack (unless you want to).
This fashion hack is an effortless street style look! This grunge inspired style is perfect for a day spent at the local coffee shop and looks amazing dressed up with some leggings and booties.
A preppy take on the plaid flannel shirt is to wear a vest or cardigan. We recommend our “On My Own Time” vest in bone grey. This is an ideal look for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of time styling their outfit to spend more time buying fall scented candles!
