{Remix Rewear Restyle} Checked Shirt

#remixrewearrestyle checked shirt

Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to Remix Rewear Restyle, a weekly remix challenge to showcase how you style a specific item. My hope is to inspire you {as well as myself!} to remix items already in our closets and gain inspiration from others.

This week’s remix starred checked shirts. Gingham, plaid, herringbone…these classic prints will never go out of style, and are great transitioning pieces from summer to fall because they tend to come in the form of a button up. Perfect for layering!

{My Look: classic plaid + cuffed skinnies + nude heels}

Swap the heels for boots and add a cardigan, vest, or blazer to take it into cooler weather.

{Aubree’s Look: gingham button up + cuffed coral skinnies}

What a fun color combo! I love that she paired coral skinnies & flats. Such a good trick to make your legs look even longer.

{Amy’s Look: neutral simple plaid + shorts with a pop of color}

Swap the shorts for a colored pair of skinnies to transition into cooler temps.

{Emily’s Look: plaid + a blazer and red accents}

Blazers with a printed liner are perfect for subtle pattern mixing.

{Selah’s Look: teal print button up + mint shorts}

Selah proves you don’t have to go matchy matchy to look pulled together. Staying in the same color family can give you multiple remixing options.

    Love all the plaid and gingham here!
    My shirt is actually a dark brown, but it does look kind of purple against those shorts.
    The upcoming remixes sound great!

      Oops! Thanks for letting me know, Amy. I fixed it.

    What a fun post, it’s so fun to see everyone’s take on the plaid style! It always reminds me of a Ralph Lauren ad- and there isn’t anything wrong with that ;) I really like the colored skinnies take to freshen up the look, and i LOVE how you paired it with nude pumps. So chic!

    I have a similar plaid shirt, and love the idea of wearing it with skinnies and heels! It definitely keeps it classy :)
