From sipping hot cocoa fireside to fancy family holiday parties—plaid is the perfect wintery pattern for all of the season’s festivities. Check out Fashion Fabrics Club’s roundup of 5 ways to wear plaid from super causal to dressed up this season.

plaid-holiday-partyFor the Holiday Party

Yes, that favorite plaid flannel button up you live in all winter can go with you to more formal events. It’s all about the pairing. Try tucking it into a skirt and toss on a pair heels—the key is keeping the skirt in a neutral color so the overall look doesn’t get too busy.

plaid-officeFor the Office

Instead of the typical tweed or plain weave trousers, swap in a fun, yet still sophisticated and office-appropriate, wool plaid. Keep the silhouette streamlined and if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you can pair with a matching blazer (just make sure to keep the blouse in a neutral).

plaid-weekendFor the Weekend

Use a soft super plaid gauze fabric to make an easy circle skirt, which could be an easy focal point with easy, neutral pairings. To make it a little edgy, pair with a moto jacket, fedora, and a pair of suede booties.

plaid-brunchFor the Festive Brunch

You can transform a sleeveless plaid shift dress into a winter-ready outfit by simply adding a long-sleeved shirt underneath. Pair with tights if it’s a particularly chilly day, but if the sun is shining you can add a little sex appeal by going bare legged with a pair of over-the-knee boots.

plaid-errandsFor the Holiday Errand Run

Keeping arms free from bulky sleeves is essential for navigating the holiday store crowds, and balancing the many shopping bags full of presents. Cue: the plaid vest—it’s just the right amount of warmth, and holiday festiveness, to combat the wintery elements and stay cool once inside the over heated stores.
