Classic plaid is perfect for winter. No, not styled like a lumberjack, silly — styled like the suave fashionista you are. Any color will do, but our favorite is plaid with a bit of red. You know, since it's Christmas and all...
Where to find it: Pick up a versatile plaid piece from J.Crew. We like this Boy Shirt in Grey Tartan, which is the retailer's take on the signature boyfriend shirt. Pair this shirt with a skirt, jeans or anything really. Its versatility makes it a closet staple!
