Many have already waxed lyrical about the versatility of gingham shirts – or even plaid shirts in general. Not only do they fit in all seasons, they also fit in a myriad of styles. Girly, grungy, preppy, vintage – you name it! We completely understand the undying hype that surrounds it.
Judging from the many plaid shirts Reese Witherspoon has worn in the past, it is clear that she is a part of the populace that loves plaid shirts. The 37-year old actress prefers to wear this trusty button down shirt during her down days.
In fact, she has worn it again a few days ago for a day out.

What we like about Reese is that she takes the trend and puts her own spin to it. And get this: the effect is wearable and easy to copy. We, mere mortals, can rock a similar outfit on any given day.
The Legally Blonde star teamed it up with a pair of dark-colored five-pocket “Nico” skinny jeans by Hudson with a rolled up hem and a pair of black leather double zipper detailed pointed toe ankle boots by Saint Laurent. She was seen toting a black “Atlantique Bionic Mini” handbag by Reed Krakoff that can also be worn crossbody style. Her outfit was completed with “2132 New Wayfarer” sunglasses by Ray-Ban.

Later that day, she gave the shirt a new look by wearing a sweater over it so only parts of the gingham shirt are visible. The effect is a preppy-chic outfit that is both modern and timeless.
