Plaid is No Longer Played Out

In the revolving door that is fashion, one style that has made its way around many times is plaid. It’s one of those prints that comes and goes, so it’s definitely worth investing in, and this year is perfect because it is everywhere. Here are some ideas on how you can style this print for your wardrobe:


Coats- All over the racks in stores and the runways during fashion week, we saw tons of statement jackets. While you can never go wrong with a black coat, try something more whimsical this year. Many designers have released plaid jackets this season, and they are great with the holidays around the corner.

This year you will also be able to find plaid tops that are not just flannel button downs, so there are tons of options on how to step up your work wardrobe with this season’s trends!


Accessories- The easiest way to add a seasonal trend to your look is through accessories. Right now, you can find plaid in various forms. You will have your classic plaid scarves and Burberry bags, but now other designers are hopping on this trend as well. Brands like Topshop, Balenciaga, Fendi, and Frances Valentine have all released new plaid purses. You will also see many shawls and capes on the market now with plaid prints. These pair great with an all-black look and some boots.


Holidays- Thanksgiving is only weeks away, and that means the start of the holiday season. Your weekends are filled with holiday parties and other festivities. Every year you see little kids dressed in plaid during the holidays, but this year everyone can partake in this trend. For the men, there are tons of plaid options from ties to button downs to scarves. For women, there are many new dresses and skirts on the market just in time for holiday season.


Plaid is one of those trends that comes and goes, and this year it is everywhere. As fall continues to roll closer to winter, you will keep seeing plaid more and more. That being said, get ready to see patterns everywhere. Channel your inner Cher from Clueless and find your plaid skirt and jacket!
