Plaid has always been a style staple. It’s the print that ALWAYS makes you look like you have your s**t together. Also known as tartan, plaid can be styled with everything from solids, to mixed prints, or our favorite: in a matching set (power suit, anyone?). No matter how you style it, it is definitely a must have for the Fall. This classic print never goes out of style and can be refreshed in your wardrobe season after season. You’ll never look old and outdated in plaid! Instead you’ll look chic and about your business.
Plaid is usually a print associated with punk, preppy, grunge, and business class, but don’t let that stop you from getting some, friend! It is one of the most versatile prints to hit the runway for the Fall 2019 season -- and it’s not your grandmother’s plaid sofa print. Designers used every shape and silhouette to make tartan their own on the runways this season. They succeeded in piquing our interest with some of our favorite looks coming from Zendaya x Tommy Hilfiger and Christian Dior, just to name a few.
Grey plaid has also been taking over The Gram lately, seen on Sevyn Streeter, Karrueche, and Monica the past few weeks, making us love it more and more. All of these fashionistas have been seen in grey plaid on their social media feeds rocking the print in sets, with hats, and even sports bras. These style mavens are giving us the keys to styling plaid in a youthful and modern way, and we’re all the way here for it!
