How to Embrace Plaid

DETAILS.
Black Bomber Jacket (size xs - similar here)  // Grey Zip Top (size small) // Black Dotted Blouse (size small - also own it in white as seen here) // Plaid Distressed Denim (size 26 - runs small - size up) // Black Suede Booties (true to size)
ACCESSORIES.
Celine Bag (similar under $100 here) // Gold Boyfriend Watch // Karen Walker Sunglasses

When you think plaid, stop thinking lumberjack or schoolgirl – this season’s plaid pieces add an urban twist to the familiar print. Whether you are ready to embrace plaid fully this season or prefer to start with a few accents (like this plaid scarf under $20), you can do it without straying from your style. 

From plaid, tartan to buffalo check, there are so many options for incorporating this trend into you closet. You can find just about any color combination since plaid is having its moment right now, but the darker, subtle hues (like this denim) are all the rage this fall. Your choices for plaid pieces aren’t limited to button-ups and coats anymore, bold plaid denim and bottoms are being seen everywhere this season. 

If you are opting for a more subtle plaid look layering is key. Mixing prints and textures creates contrast in your ensemble and distracts from your eye focusing on one print. I opted for a sheer dotted blouse against the plaid paired with contrasting light and dark layers to create this effect. 

If you can’t decide on how you will embrace plaid this fall, here are a few pieces to help get you inspired:

  5. Last season launched plaid in all segments of fashion and it's staying there. I guess there are people who are natural with it and those who are going to benefit from this post a lot! I'm certainly in the second group, I love this ripped jeans with plaid underneath a lot, I'd like a pair just lake those. Other than that, I manage with simple plaid shirt layered with blazers or sweaters or pair of elegant, but neutral, plaid trousers.
