This fall and winter season welcomes the age old plaid/tartan trend. While I at first cringed at the very return of this pattern, I of course understand the modern day appeal that can bring plaid/tartan back in the hottest way. Need help? Explore your style options with the three plaid/tartan graced looks below for ideas on how to successfully nail this trend without looking like a schoolgirl, a roll of scotch tape, or a character from an eery television show.
Bold Classic Print
Classic print plaid can be fun to wear. The key is to wear it boldly! This look was paired with some of fall's hottest accents; leather and bold blue hues which bring out the bold/rebellious vibe of the look. Top it off with a pair of sunglasses to accentuate your cool. This look is paired with a plum lip and white nail color to simplify and give a mod touch.
Casual and Modern
It is possible to embrace this trend without going too over the top. Add a warm-toned plaid overcoat to your best dark-wash denim and pair it with a classic chic pump. This look has an added tote which complements the statement jacket, and features another hot accessory for the fall - a chunky scarf. Finish this look with simple jewelry pieces.
Mix it Up!
Mixing patterns and textures is always a go-to top notch move (in my obsessive opinion), this look features the bold yet effortless concept of pattern mixing. While two patterns are existent, they compliment each other well through color and pattern moderation. Graphic tees are always a trendy option when wearing a patterned bottom. With ruched sleeves and an ankle bootie, this look is perfect for breezy fall climate weather. This look also features matching hues on lip and nail color (another hot trend for the season), and a simple tote bag for assertiveness yet simplicity.
