8 Ways to Wear a Plaid Button Down For Fall

I'm a little bummed out that due to my pregnancy, I didn't have the chance to wear any summer dresses this year. But now that fall is about to grace us with its beautiful, colorful landscape, I can start looking forward to (and layering) fall pieces. Pieces like a plaid button down. 
Have a plaid button down that you don't know how to wear? Here are 8 ways to rock it this fall.

1. With a Fur Vest

A fur vest is great for layering, and adding texture to your look. It's the perfect piece for any fall ensemble, and it will keep you warm and cozy on those chilly fall nights.

2. With a Pencil Skirt

Add a touch of femininity to your fall look by pairing your plaid button down with a pencil skirt. For an extra fun look, choose a skirt in a contrasting pattern.

3. With a Blazer

Go for a corporate chic look this fall by throwing a blazer over your plaid shirt. Top of the look with a pair of pumps and coordinating belt.

4. With a Pair of Overalls

Not a girl with super girlie style? Wear a casual pair of overalls with your plaid shirt. You'll be comfortable and still walk in style.

5. With a Sweater on Top

Double up by wearing a fun sweater over your plaid button down. Mix up the look by going with a contrasting pattern. I loooove this red plaid and animal print combo!

6. With a Dress on Top

Super sweet and classy looking, get your girlie on with a fabulous fall dress. Tone down the look by wearing your plaid button down underneath. If needed, throw on a pair of tights for extra warmth.

7. With Another Button Down

Fall is all about layering, and a plaid button down over a solid button down will create a really awesome layered look. Add dimension by choosing shirts with different sleeve lengths.

8. With Ripped Jeans

I love a look that combines pieces in different styles- like a dressy plaid shirt with some grungy ripped jeans. Complete the look with some sexy pumps and edgy accessories.

So how are you planning to wear your plaid button down this fall?
