Style Advice of the Week

There are a lot of popular trends when it comes to fall but one of my all time favorites would have to be plaid! This pattern is making a huge comeback this season and is being represented heavily on the racks of almost every clothing store. The plaid trend is so versatile — whether you’re going for a preppy look or a punk edge, it just works. This week I was lucky enough to spot this trendsetting Fashionisto sporting plaid in a very original way!

This Fashionisto wore a head turning leather and plaid combination shirt. He completed the look with dark wash denim and black loafers. I had never seen a shirt quite like this before, and it would be very difficult not to notice him walking around campus! He made this trend his very own, which makes him the perfect choice for this week’s feature.

How you choose to wear your plaid is entirely up to you, but the options are almost endless! For a day full of classes, try wearing a plaid blazer paired with a black v-neck and black fitted trousers. If you’re going for an edgier look, try a plaid skater skirt paired with Dr. Marten combat boots. Not ready to dive all the way into this trend? Pick up a plaid headband or even a scarf and pair it with a black coat or denim jacket as an accessory.

If you have no plaid in your closet, take a chance and incorporate it into your fall/winter wardrobe. Who knows, you just might go mad for plaid!
