How to Wear Plaid Pants

Top: Shein
Pants: Shein
Shoes: Steve Madden (sold out - similar)
Earrings: Kenneth Jay Lane

I loved the first Wifey top I got from Shein so much that I got this V-neck tee version too. It came out perfectly and the fabric is comfy as can be. In the same week, I also got the latest package from Shein with this plaid pants. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical when placing my order. I've never tried buying pants from Shein before and I've always read reviews of the pants sizing being too small. I opted for the plaid print because it has that classic touch to it despite being somewhat of a trendy piece.

I decided to wear the pants with my new Wifey tee. It is a casual and corporate chic look, especially since I've paired it with my red pumps from Steve Madden. The pants look amazing, but not without some minor issues in terms of sewing quality. Other than that, I was pretty impressed with the type of fabric and love how it feels worn. 

Style Tip: And now for the style tip, you can wear plaid pants like I did here. Wear one piece of plaid at a time to keep your outfit from looking overwhelmingly busy. As you can see here, I opted for a solid colored top so the plaid pants become the focal piece of the outfit. Another tip that you can incorporate is to choose a piece of clothing within the same color palette as the plaid piece you are wearing. In this case, I paired the black and white pants with a dark blue (almost black from afar) to provide symmetry with the color scheme.

How would you wear this plaid pants?

  4. Cool! Patterned pants are definitely more of a bold look, I think pairing them with the simple tee worked out beautifully!

  18. Looks great, and to answer your question: is wear it with some black heels and a black top. Or keep your red heels and top with a black blazer. 😊

  48. I love the idea of a plaid pant, but the print not matching up at the seams would drive me crazy! I guess that is what is to be expected from a fast fashion site.
