The plaid pattern has for sure a certain something about it that take us to remembering the soft grudge style of the 90’s and the free spirited look so familiar to the teenagers of those days.
If you like the idea of wearing plaid, this season can offer you endless possibilities and combinations. You can appeal to plaid to look casually chic, office ready but you can upscale the pattern to look fashion conscious without trying too hard.
The Plaid Shirt
There is no item more versatile this season than the old school plaid shirt. Vivid colors are perfect to mix with a black silk or leather mini skirt while earth tones plaid pattern works wonders with jeans and a knitted sweater. For a sporty chic look add a crocheted beanie an sporty jacket, a pair of rugged skinnies and a pair of loafers.
If you want to upscale the shirt to make it more fitted for the office , choose a smoother fabric and pair it with classic cut pants and cute colored high heel pumps.
Plaid and Skirt Designs
You will be glad to know the vintage looking plaids are back too. So if you plan to show off your legs in mini tartan inspired skirt this is the right time to do it. Choose flared, knee length designs for office look and keep in mind that this fashionable plaid item must be combined with a monochrome top for a classy result, a leather biker jacket for a punk touch and a colorful printed shirt and pumps for a rebellious, Madonna inspired, look.
Plaids look cool on mid length pencil skirts too and these skirts are best combined with pointy toe ankle booties.
A Plaid Dress to Impress
The fashion conscious women with a daring heart can choose all plaid attire. The plaid dresses of this season are all about emphasizing the figure so make sure you choose a flattering design. In case you are a casual look fan choose a plaid shirt dress combined with leggings and low heel loafer boots but if you want to go for a cute schoolgirl look choose a fitted top and flared skirt dress and a loose fit beanie.
Flared hemlines are also trendy for the plaid dresses of this season and so are plaid tunics but for a more classic look you can choose an A-line plaid dress or a etui tartan dress with lace sleeves.
