20 Style Tips On How To Wear Plaid Scarves

Can I confess something? I feel like I can. Here goes: I’m addicted to plaid scarves. I love plaid anything, I’m obsessed with scarves, and when they come together, I just go crazy. I have spent an embarrassing amount of money adding to my plaid scarf collection, which includes blanket scarves, infinity scares, and cozy knit versions in every shade imaginable. Do I have the time to wear all of them? I don’t know. Do I need three different versions of the same plaid scarf because one is more mahogany red than classic red, and one has fringe while the other doesn’t? No, I really don’t. But this logic doesn’t help.

Plaid scarves are a fall and winter essential, and I know I’m not the only one who hoards them in this way. The number one best thing about a plaid scarf is that it’s cozy and keeps you warm. The second best thing is that you can literally wear it with anything. Want some ideas and examples? Here are 20 style tips on how to wear plaid scarves with fall outfit ideas you need to see:

1. Just because plaid is a bold pattern doesn’t mean it has to be worn with solids! Plaid scarves look surprisingly awesome with striped shirts.

2. Keep it simple and wear your plaid scarf with a chambray shirt.

3. Leather jackets are great for fall, but on chilly days they might not help that much. A scarf keeps you warm – plus, there’s something about plaid and leather that just looks so good together.

4. Blazers are annoying to wear under coats. Instead of an extra layer, add a big, cozy plaid scarf.

7. Don’t shy away from other patterns – plaid goes well with almost anything, even a pattern in a different color, like this one.

8. Switch things up by tying a loose, low knot at the bottom of your scarf ends. Also – plaid and leopard print are a dream combo.

9. You can also style your plaid blanket scarf as more of a poncho. Drape it over your shoulders and arms, then keep in place with a skinny belt.

10. That belted poncho style can be worn on it’s own as your “coat,” or belted underneath a coat for extra layers.
