Plaid & Gingham Shirt Styling with Johnston & Murphy

When making the transition into autumn styling, it’s best take some cues from your spring style. Gingham and plaid shirts weren’t just trends during the warmer months, they have effectively become style staples that have made a case for themselves to be worn year-round. Even though you’re taking cues from your spring style, you’ll want to save those spring color palettes for next year and reach for heartier tones this fall.

The two shirts in this feature are from Johnston & Murphy’s Fall 2013 Collection. It is impressive to see that J&M has really improved the fit of their shirts, while sticking to their traditional styles. Below are some style tips when selecting plaid or gingham shirts this fall.

Style Tips:

  • When choosing either a gingham & plaid  shirt this fall, sticking to earth tones and heartier colors is key.
  • Gingham Scale: during the warmer months, the scale of the squares should remain smaller and traditional. During the fall, look for a larger size/scale gingham pattern. A larger scale to the pattern will make it more distinct which is beneficial when the colors become darker and warmer.
  • Plaid shirts pair well with wool suits because they inherently complement the wool fabric’s texture.
  • Booth shirt patterns pair well with corduroy, wool and denim.
