Plaid is back for Fall in a big way! I've seen plaid tops, tees, pants, skirts, shoes, handbags and accessories for fall in a variety of colors from bright blue to hot pink to neon yellow. This trend seems to have touched every corner of our wardrobes. Not since the mid 90's has plaid made such an impact on the younger, trendier demographic and it's about time! (Can you tell I like plaid?)
The great thing about this trend is that it is so simple to incorporate into your current closet, no matter what size you are or what your budget may be. For the smaller junior, I love the new Dollhouse Buffalo Check Tops which retail under $30! They have both long and short sleeve versions in blue, red and yellow. Pair them with a cami and a dark blue pair of jeans and you're set! Vintage Havana also has a collection of trendier plaid tops with unique details. For the more contemporary customer, Tulle has several beautiful plaid jackets in feminine colors and weaves and we will soon be receiving a few styles of jackets & coats from BB Dakota.
If you are more hesitant to wear plaid, you might consider a handbag or tote bag like the one from Fashion Express. You can also grab a plaid scarf or add a some style to your outfit with a pair of kicks in a funky buffalo check or tartan. In addition, you might consider a plaid bangle bracelet or acrylic earrings for just a touch of this look. Once you give it a try, you might just find yourself going back for bigger and bolder plaids!
