Break the monotonous practice of wearing a red and white plaid shirt and opt for this electric blue one instead. The next time you see a different colored plaid, do not shy away from wearing it because you know it looks great. To pamper yourself and the plaid a little more, sport that skinny denim and pull up a pair of thigh-high booties!

5. With A Camo Jacket In Winter

Can you quickly think of one word that sums up fall? Go on, think about it! If your answer was ‘checkered’, high five sister! Checkered and how! Nothing like cozying up in soft flannel shirts and using them as layers to keep yourself protected from the cold breezes that remind you that winter is right around the corner. So, have fun while it lasts. Wear plain T-shirts, plaid shirts, and chunky accessories, and drink a lot of pumpkin spiced latte.

13. Bikini Cover Up

Anyway, the next time you are headed for a holiday, remember that you don’t have to carry a cover-up or worry if you forgot to take one. More power to our flannels!
