summer plaids

File this one under “summer plaids.”

Granted, it’s not the first pastel-hued windowpane check you’ve seen this summer, but it’s one of the better ones. And more importantly, it’s on sale.

And since you’ve got a minimum of four colors working through the check, you’ll have a lot of options in terms of pairing it up. The classic navy blazer will play off the dark blue stripe, while your khaki suit plays off the small horizontal stripe running across your chest. Even a white blazer will have something to play off, thanks to those tiny squares above and below the pocket.

And if you happened to have a sea-foam-colored cardigan…
