Plaid for every occasion

Fall trends are on the horizon. While we love good floral prints and animal-spotted pieces, one trend you should have your eye on this season is the classic plaid print.

We usually associate plaid with preppy, collegiate and even Catholic girl cutie (and this is quite alright). However, lately this tartan pattern has been showcased in a more chic way. Think of it as a neutral but still a statement for your wardrobe.

As seen on the fall 2013 runways, it has become irresistible in my book. The options for making this trend extra downtown cool girl or even flirty and très chic are endless. Wearing it with leather outerwear like moto jackets, leather skinnies, pencil skirts for work and even pairing it with denim is a sure way to stay classic and hip. It's about making it your own and you want to make sure you stick with what makes you comfortable. Whether it's the modern, ancient or muted, there is a shade or style out there just for you. Here are five different ways to wear plaid this fall.
