The plaid button-down is a sturdy and versatile winter wardrobe item. Having survived several fashion trends (remember ‘90s grunge?), plaid has emerged as a uniform of the hipster movement. Girls can make a fashion statement by wearing an oversized check shirt with thick leggings. Boys can go bold with fun plaid colors like turquoise and purple. But even if fashion isn’t your kid’s bag, a soft flannel button down is just downright comfy.
