Looking through GQ.com late at night and saw an article about pairing plaid shirts (LOVE them!) and dark tie (it’s a must) with your suits to make them pop and a more fresh look to them. The model for these pictures is Jason Sudeikis of SNL, he looks super cute in his get up for the photo shoot; I wonder who was the stylist for this shoot.
Wearing plaids with suits is a great way of having some fun with your wardrobe and getting a bit more mileage out of all those plaid shirts we all (men & women) buy during the year. Think about it like “suiting up” with a plaid top, so Plaid Up!
*Tip: Switch the suit pant with a pair of dark denim and get a great outfit for a night out or for a casual day at the office.
