Plaid, Not Plain: Perfect Summer Outfit

These past few days I’ve usually been very laid back in general. Mainly because I have been keeping unwell for quite some time (quite the reason I haven’t been blogging) and also because of the tremendous heat that’s been ongoing here in Delhi.

So, I finally decided to jerk myself up and catch up on making some posts for the blog. This time, instead of putting a lot of effort into ideating an outfit, I decided to go with a comfortable, casual uniform of sorts. Honestly, I am a shirt person, and a plain cotton shirt along with a pair of denims is usually my ‘go to’ outfit when I barely feel like dressing up.

I love patterns. Patterns are always good in making a solid statement in your outfit. While fall is the easiest time to get creative with patterns as you can work with layers, in summers, you can always downplay with a plaid or printed shirt with a solid accessory, paired with jeans and shoes of your choice. You can actually go crazy with pattern play.

I wore this plaid shirt so many times and I think I’ve found a new favorite shirt… so I’m quite sure to see this one worn to death over the next 3 months! I’m a big fan of a casual button up and jeans, but today I thought of giving it a little twist by dressing them up with a chunky chandelier earrings and my favourite pair of jooties. In an attempt to shake things up I wore it with dark blue skinnies instead of black leggings. Easy and!

I’ve brought this up a little in the past, but wearing lipstick makes me feel like a total babe! Today I’m wearing Color Bar Fuschia and it makes even jeans and a plaid shirt feel so much more glam.

What & How to:

  • If you are unsure of wearing patterns, try a Flannel (like the one I’m wearing) and tie it around the waist of a bodycon dress for a casual babe look
  • Layer Plaids with Solids for a silent statement. Chunky Earrings, Bauble necklaces or Charm Bracelets – all work
  • Pick one Plaid accessory or outerwear – such as a Plaid Scarf, a Plaid Skirt or a Plaid Shirt and plan your outfit around it. Don’t Overdo
  • Let your Plaid do the talking as the featured outfit piece against dark jeans, black or brown or blue, or even a jacket


What I wore:

Earrings: Amazon
Plaid Button Down: H&M
Denim:  Stalk Buy Love
Jootis: Lajpat Nagar

Bag: Charles and Keith
Lips: Color Bar Fuschia
