Mad for Plaid

September 15, 2017

From buffalo check to gingham, it’s time to go mad for plaid. Here are some of our favorite ways to wear this perfect pattern for fall…

The Plaid Ruana

Bundle up this season in a warm plaid ruana, cape, poncho or wrap. These flowy and fashionable fall garments are all similar in silhouette — it’s just a matter of finding the one you like best. We love this classic tartan ruana paired with a scarlet floppy hat and leather handbag…

Cozy Flannel

A casual button-down flannel is the quintessential shirt for fall. Pick your favorite plaid flannel (they come in endless color combinations) and wear it buttoned up with some skinny jeans and booties for a fall-ready look…

The Plaid Men’s Shirt

Wearing an oversized men’s shirt can be super stylish and sexy — just remember to roll up those sleeves! Pick a men’s shirt that is one to two sizes bigger than your normal shirt size, but be careful not to go too baggy (the length should still hit well above your knees, and the fit should be straight and svelte versus wide and boxy). Play up the masculine plaid with feminine over-the-knee boots, leggings or skinny jeans, and a cute scarf…

The Plaid Shirtdress

Alternatively, you can go full-on feminine in a sweet shirtdress. We love this sleeveless, blue and red tartan shirtdress — just add a duster sweater in case it gets chilly. Wear some chunky moto boots with your shirtdress for some ‘90s edge…

The Gingham Blouse

Elevate your plaid look with a classy gingham blouse. You can make this preppy pattern a bit more trendy by choosing a modern fit, like this navy and white choker neck blouse. Add a ring-handle bag for extra sophistication…

The Plaid Kimono

Want to wear plaid but keep things light? Try a sheer plaid kimono. Wear it draped over a simple outfit for just a hint of fall fun…

The Buffalo Check Shirt

Buffalo check is marked by its bold black and red cross-hatching squares (similar to a chessboard). Although it comes in other hues, red buffalo check is red-hot this fall and looks sizzling tucked into a pair of dark blue jeans...

Plaid Blanket Scarf

A blanket scarf in a madras plaid pattern is one of our favorite fall accessories. Throw one on over an all-black outfit so your plaid really stands out…
