My Favorite Plaid Moments // 10 Ways I Wear Plaid

10 ways I wear plaid

Like polka-dots, stripes, certain florals, and leopard print, plaid is one of those prints that is timeless and always stylish. And like all the prints listed above, can be worn heavily or sparingly and mixed with any of the aforementioned as well.

Sometimes plaid feels punk, sometimes it feels collegiate, other times, equestrian, preppy, and even grunge. What’s so great about plaid is that it falls into every style category and becomes whatever the wearer wants it to be.

Here are 10 of my favorite plaid moments, and by moments I mean outfits, of course 😉

    Love the plaid too! I like your mixing plaid with stripes and maxi dress with boots especially. I experiment with different plaid items…have a couple of plaid shorts that I love to wear with a solid blazer, plaid headbands…love plaid socks peeking out from ankle boots and a long skirt. x
