Plaid pants are the new jeans

Comfy, stylish and an allrounder - no I am not talking about the common blue jeans but my new favorites, the plaid pants. These new trousers are a must have item in every men’s wardrobe. There are just as simply to combine as jeans. Either with casual pieces like a simple t-shirt and sneakers for an all-day-look, or with more fashionable garments like a fancy shirt and some Chelsea boots for an occurrence like a dinner. You can mix those patterned pants with everything you want - there are no longer just for business meetings or fancy events, they have become a fixed part in the street-style-area.


In my chase, I want to show how you can wear plaid pants for the daily routine but also for an evening event. The outfit become more casual with the white sneakers and the stripped socks - on the top with a trenchcoat and the shirt it looks more smartish. I decide to take a white shirt with a mandarin collar and a hidden button-facing because for me it´s the perfect item to show how street-style and evening wear can come together.
