As September rolls in we’re reminded of our back to school days, and even though we’re not packing our backpacks and hitting the classroom, we’re still channeling back-to-school style this fall. And nothing says schoolgirl chic like the perfect plaid. To top it all off, plaid is one of the most accessible patterns for everyday wear — it looks just as stylish on a coat or sweater as it does on a skirt or blouse.
Clockwise from top left:
1. Try the plaid trend with a little mini skirt — a slouchy sweater or top and minimal accessories keep the look simple. (We Wore What)
2. Have fun with layering and sneak in a classic plaid button up. (Garance Dore)
3. Make a statment this season with a bold plaid coat — you’ll be surprised to find it matches nearly everything in your wardrobe. (Harper’s Bazaar)
