A Timeless Yet Trendy Wardrobe Staple

In search of cool and original print this fall? Go for plaid. Hip yet classic, plaid is the ultimate style chameleon. It can be bright, bold and eye-catching, hip and grungy a la 1990 or subtle and understated. Plaid is a perpetual favorite of fashionistas of all ages, and for good reason: it can be dressed up or down, it’s cozy and—best of all—it’s typically inexpensive. Whether you go bold and mix it with another pattern or simply wear a hint of it in your accessories, plaid works. Don’t be afraid of experimenting with layers, either! Fall is the perfect time to play around with this patterned staple. When comfort is key, layer a plaid blanket scarf over a soft sweater jacket or a cozy pullover for a classic and trendy fall look. Plaid isn’t just for fashion either; it’s incredibly easy to take your look up a notch with patterned nail art. Don’t be afraid to try something new!
