A classic take on a casual. Elevate your plaid shirt with a tailored trouser or throw on over a soft t-shirt for a comfy weekend look.
INTRODUCTION WNU’s collection of Plaid shirts are the perfect addition to your wardrobe, guaranteed to add character to any outfit. Start with the Plaid Boyfriend shirt as your office staple. Inspired by menswear and adjusted for the female form, the Boyfriend shirt combines the tailored look with a looser fit for full comfort. All of our shirts are designed with a slightly looser fit, sitting just off the shoulders and away from the body. For a true to size fit you should take your usual size, for exaggerated oversized look we suggest sizing up two sizes.
MATERIAL WNU’s Plaid shirts are available in our much-loved Brushed material. Our Brushed shirts are perfect for the cooler temperatures as they are 100% organic cotton, which have undergone a ‘brushing’, where fine metal brushes carefully rub the fabric to produce fine fibres from the woven yarns, creating extra softness on the surface of the fabric. We have brushed both sides of our shirts to keep you extra warm and ensure the fabric is lusciously soft to wear.
SOURCING Our factories in Portugal are operated by family-run, female-dominant teams who source all of our fabrics and weave them into the finest shirts for you. We value their endeavours above all else, so we stop at nothing to ensure they work for us within the best conditions, including appropriate pay and facilities. Once this part is complete, our shirts are shipped to our warehouse in the UK where the quality of production is thoroughly checked before we proceed to packaging, and then to delivery.
STYLING Surround your Plaid piece with neutrals so it stands out like it should – pair with grey blazers, over black roll-necks, or under wool coats in block colours. Pick denim jeans for your bottom half, light wash or darker, or even cigarette pants if the dress code is smart casual. Plaid is perfect for relaxed weekends away too. Wear it buttoned up with leggings, a wax jacket and black boots for a cool, laid-back (not to mention weather-ready) look.
