Denim and plaid are a fashion combination that goes together like peanut butter and jelly. Like many classic pairings, though, you can easily be fooled into thinking there’s only one way to wear it. We challenge that notion with our modern outfit guide to wearing jeans and plaid shirts inspired by some great combinations that we found on Pintrest.

With black pants: Black pants are not only super hot this season but also slimming to every figure. Wear a dark plaid button down with your black pants or a black-and-white one. That’s all you need to do to look all done up.
Dark and light hues: If you are a bit heavier on the bottom, avoid coloured pants and stick to darkest of the dark blue denims. Pair them with a lighter shaded plaid shirt that compliments the colour of your pants for a more sophisticated look.
With high waist jeans: Grandma’s high waist jeans are back so why not pair them with your favourite plaid and boyfriend blazer? I think we’re ready to take on another day!
Layers: Pile on your plain into stylish layers this winter. It makes for an amazing casual look that has a touch of elegance to it. Don’t you agree?
Get an edge over others: Pair your plaid with a tee-back and some distressed jeans. Don’t forget to add your feline flick and rock this super edgy look.
Go classic: If you’re a die-hard classic fan type of a woman, then this might just be your go-to look. Tuck the shirt in for a formal look or let it hang out and wear lug-soled boots for a more casual outing.
Work-ready: Who said guys can’t experiment with plaid? They first made plaid shirts a fashion statement and now they are at it again. Wear a multi-coloured plaid on your favourite pair of denims and finish with a leather belt. Off to work, boy!
The boy next door: This outfit idea is perfect for the boy next door. Suede lace-ups, denims and complimenting plaid hanging around the waist; how cute is that!
Official tie-up: If you’re a senior manager and want to dress down for work without making it too obvious, just throw on a basic vest with a plaid-print tie. This will make your outfit look carefully put together.
One for the skater boy: Folded up denims, a classic white tee and a plaid shirt thrown over it. What more do you need to maintain your cool skater boy image!
Over-under: If you’re planning a trip to the chilly-hills, try one of these over-under combinations. Wear a thick plaid sweat shirt on your tee or wear a plaid shirt and throw a classic sweat shirt in a dark hue.
Back-to-school: If you want to play it simple for school, try this look: sneakers, tee, stone-washed distressed jeans and a classic plaid shirt thrown over. Trust me boy, the girls will love it.
