The Top Five Plaid Shirts That Won't Make You Look Like A Lumberjack

The popularity of plaid tops was one of last fall’s most pleasant surprises, so we’re happy to see that this (rural) boyfriend-inspired trend has returned along with colder weather. The problem with plaid is that if it’s not executed properly, you can look a bit like you’re prepping to cut down down some trees (or like you missed the memo that grunge-chic was over about fifteen years ago).  So, since we’re nothing if not a bunch of tree-lovers over here at SheFinds (and know you are too!) here are our favorite plaid looks that won’t make you look like a lumberjack heading off to cut down the forest.

Proof that plaid can be very girly, we’d wear this vintage-inspired Marc Jacobs tee ($148) tucked into a classic pleated skirt for a polite school-girl look.

re collection green elastic waist flannel shirt

With its cropped cut and short sleeves, this plaid shirt from Re Collection ($88), which is made from recycled fabric, is cute in addition to being eco-friendly.

vince plaid shirt

Feminize this oversized Vince boyfriend shirt ($195) with a thick belt, a pair of creative leggings, and some suede booties with sky-high heels.

ruffle bib plaid shirt

We love the light color scheme and retro ruffles on this ultra-charming Banana Republic ruffle bib plaid shirt ($70).

lamb shirt

With its sexy plunging neckline and wide collar, the menswear-inspired pattern is the only thing masculine about this flirty top from L.A.M.B ($165).
