A Season Staple: The Plaid Button Down

If you can believe it, I have had this plaid shirt for 10 years. What’s not surprising is that it’s from J. Crew, since the plaid button down shirt has been a season staple of theirs for years. It’s amazing that this one has held up so well for so long though! Nonetheless, every year I pull it out in the fall and wear it probably a little too much during the holiday season.

A plaid button down is a season staple in my opinion as it’s perfect for layering and adding just the right amount of holiday cheer to any outfit. I love pairing this one with cardigans like I did today, but you’ll also see me wearing it tucked into skirts like in this post, layered under dresses like in this post, or dressed up with black pants and sparkly flats like in this post. Here are a few of my favorites for the season since my exact shirt is obviously no longer available.

A plaid button down is a closet staple this time of year and can be an easy fall back piece for any holiday occasion. I’d love to know, are you as crazy for plaid button downs as I am? How do you style yours?
