Okay, let's pretend it's 7 days later and you've gone to the store and bought a plaid shirt or two, now you're like "okay, what do I do next, how do I wear this"…
Option #1: "The East Village Way": white v-neck tee underneath, skinny jeans or jeans that fit, worn down chucks, skippers, or neutral colored boat shoes, and the shirt should be worn open or buttoned over the tee, oh and don't forget to roll up the sleeves. Optional accessories include a hat (the kind your grandpa wears, lol) and wayfarer shades.
Option #2: "The Benjamin Bixby Way": v-neck sweater, khaki or neutral colored cords (aka corduroy pants), loafers or new pair of neutral colored Converse (the beige ones), and the shirt should be worn underneath the sweater tucked in or out depending on your mood. Optional accessories include a hat, striped scarf, and braided leather bracelet.
Option #3: "The Too Cool For School Way": bright colored jeans (any color jeans that fit really), fitted hat, badAzz sneakers– like pair of Creative Recreation. Optional accessories include glasses- yes, the nerdy kind.
