If you don’t already have a plaid piece in your closet, it is time to invest. Houndstooth, tartan, and checkered patterns have made a splash all over the runway. This classic pattern has been done in an updated version that gives it a more modern feel. If you have a prim and proper school uniform come to mind when you think of plaid, have no fear! Plaid has taken a turn in the grunge direction. Pairing leather accents and fur with plaid makes for an edgier look.
Take cues from a favorite runway look by 3.1 Phillip Lim. Play up the outfit by wearing a dark lipstick to show your sultry side.
If your not feeling this bold, you can always keep it simple by wearing plaid accessories. Earmuffs, pumps, a small clutch, or your old Burberry check scarf will do!
