Looking for simple Christmas Plaid outfits? I’m sharing my five favorite ways to rock plaid that aren’t a button down shirt.
Well, it’s official. Thanksgiving is over and we’re full steam ahead to Christmas. From the online shopping to the visits to Santa to the hot chocolate by the fire and figuring out places to hide the elf on the shelf, we’re all decking the halls and prepping for the season. Not gonna lie, I’m loving it. This is such a fun time of year. There are parties, events, and family traditions. I’m TRYING to plan festive outfits and holiday dresses to wear to everything, without going totally over the top.
If you’re planning holiday activities, then this is for YOU. I’m sharing five easy ways to wear Christmas Plaid that aren’t a traditional button down shirt.
Christmas Plaid Outfits: 5 Not Button Down Shirt Options
Plaid Shoes: Plaid shoes are a GREAT way to add plaid to an otherwise simple outfit. From these mommy and me Toms to plaid heels, I love how versatile plaid shoes can be! Bonus, this particular pair gives back….for each pair of Toms you buy, the company donates a pair of shoes to a child in need.
