Mad for Plaid

It’s crazy that fall will be here soooo soon! One of my favorite parts of prepping for a new season is identifying key colors, patterns, or trends that will be big, so I have an eye out when I see things at stores or sales online. Of course, I have to share these with yall so you can know, too! First up, we are talking about PLAID.

It is a traditional print that we typically associate with preppy school girls and Christmas wrapping paper. However, this fall, I predict that plaid will make a trendy statement with more muted colors, smaller checks and use in unique pieces.

If you are unfamiliar with plaid, it’s probably something you have seen before! Below are some examples of my outfits featuring pieces in this print.

I have already begun seeing plaid overalls, bags, shoes… anything and everything that we wouldn’t normally think of for the print! I personally think that plaid hats and bags will be all the rage… which is why I had to include some in my roundup 😉

  5. I’ve alway had an obsession with plaid! I love it during the winter and fall, but I wear it all year round! I blame my Scottish blood for that!
