The plaid trend has plenty of appeal. Witness the above-pictured ballers proudly rocking their off-court patterns. Take a cue from their style and incorporate plaid into your own wardrobe.
Why it works: Plaid is versatile and adds flavor compared with other staples like solid color dress shirts and solid color T-shirts. GQ.com says plaid makes you appear "grown up, without looking grungy." For a dressy occasion, pair your plaid shirt with a blazer—like Melo and Amar'e (above). Or, casually champion this style like Kobe, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Either way, you'll appear pulled together.
