Easy-peasy plaid

Patterns don’t bite, we promise. Although the idea of incorporating them into a chic wardrobe can be daunting to some, we think a little pattern can be a quick and easy way to add excitement to your look.

Our favorite patterns have ranged from stripes to polka dots, but our current obsession is definitely plaid. It’s easy to incorporate this pattern into any ensemble whether your style is classic, eccentric or grunge-loving.

Throw on a plaid scarf or hat to bundle up in these last days of cold temperatures, or wear a plaid button-down underneath a blazer for a hint of our favorite pattern. If you’re feeling fully committed to this look, be bold and go for plaid outerwear. It’s the chicest way to make a statement.
