STYLE GURU STYLE: Pretty In Plaid

If I had to choose one print to wear for the rest of my life, I’d choose plaid in a heartbeat. Maybe it’s my preppy northeastern roots or appreciation for private school uniforms, but if it were up to me, I’d throw on a plaid skirt and button down for any occasion. When I saw that plaid was on the rise for the upcoming fall season, to say I was excited would be an understatement. Miu Miu’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection caught my eye. The fashion label uses a lot of texture and pattern, but plaid reigns prominently over all of them, giving Fashionistas tons of ways to wear the celebrated print.

There’s a lot of ways that I love to wear plaid, so I thought I’d try a different take on the trend that translates well into the fall season. This plaid wrap was something I picked up in Scotland during my time abroad, and I wore it almost every day since it’s purchase. It’s soft and warm and, of course, plaid, and can easily be rocked with skinny jeans and sneakers. I chose to wear subdued black pieces to complement the plaid wrap, making its blue and green hues pop.

Of course, a wrap isn’t the only way to wear plaid. You can always fall back on a classic plaid skirt paired with tights, or even a plaid coat for the chilly fall air. From scarves, socks and headbands, you can find anything you want in this delightful print.
