Hey there :)

So you'd have to be living under a rock not to know that plaid is the 'it' design this season. From plaid button-ups to flats, you can find plaid *anything*. The problem is that some people don't know how to wear plaid, and they end up looking like a preppy mess.

The one thing you need to keep in mind with plaid, like most other prints, is that you don't want to over do it. Just like with leopard print- you don't want to have a plaid shirt, plaid purse, plaid shoes, and a plaid headband.
My favorite way to wear plaid is like this- just a simple button-up shirt. You can wear it mostly buttoned up, like in the picture, or you can wear open with a plain or graphic t' underneath. It makes for a nice look that doesn't look too busy
Statement shoes are all the rage this season, so plaid shoes are a given. They're a great way to turn a 'meh' outfit into something cute and trendy. They can be dressy or casual, depending on the pieces that you pair them with. Great way to dress up jeans and a t'shirt when you're feeling lazy...

I can't find any good pictures of plaid scarves, but those are definitely a must-have! I've seen them at Forever 21 and American Eagle. They're great for adding more dimension to a layered outfit, like a v-neck and a cami, or a cardigan with something.

All of the pictures are of things that you can buy from
