While plaid is no doubt a classic trend, it can sometimes seem tired and predictable. Banish that notion by buying pieces with a feminine fit and in unexpected colors, so as not to look like a lumberjack or the subject of an awkward holiday card. Let the plaid-adorned part of your ensemble take center stage and wear it with neutral clothes that fit well. It will pop perfectly and not look too overdone, which is a common mistake – detrimental to any otherwise sophisticated outfit.
When paired with a berry lip and black booties or dainty necklace and gray manicure, plaid looks positively chic!
