Mad for Plaid

Are you mad for plaid? Could it be a blast from the past? It's transformed from the traditional styling of a skirt and farmer shirt. Runway designers have not strayed away from this print and it has a history of repeating itself in the fashion industry. It's one of our favorite trends of 2018 and it's a statement piece that when paired with one of our signature bags, your look is complete. Let's style and discuss our favorite pieces to integrate into your wardrobe. 

The Trench Coat

A trench coat is a staple in any wardrobe and a plaid one is more traditional than one may think. The print is classic and is a more sophisticated outerwear option. There are styles that conform to your body as they cinch at the waist with a belt. Others have a straight form. Additional details to this coat would be the addition of buckles, double breasted buttons, and oversized pockets. Don't be afraid to rock it beyond the expected use of outerwear. Let it become a part of your outfit.

The Farmer Shirt

When you think plaid, you may instantly think of flannels. The "farmer" shirt has become quite popular in the last couple of years. Plenty of celebrities have worn it out and about. Beyoncé even rocked it in her 'Flawless' video. Styling is simple. You can simply wear it or wrap it around your waist. There are also styles that are cut to fit off the shoulder. Some are sleeveless, some have leather detail. A new wave are the dresses. Wear the dress as is with boots or pair with jeans and flats. 

The Suit

You can never have too many suits in your wardrobe. This includes both pant suits and those with skirts. It's like the little black dress because you can style it multiple ways. The suit, of course, can be worn as a two-piece, but you can separate the pieces and mix and match with other items in your wardrobe.
