PLAYING WITH PLAID THIS SEASON

By | January 18, 2016
If winter ever had to pick an official fabric, there’s no doubt that plaid would come through as a surefire winner. Typically consisting of tartan printed multi-coloured checks of woolen or flannel, we’ve come to associate plaid as a winter staple to style on for cosy nights and chilly mornings. Our guide to plaid will show you just how to flaunt the printed favorite this season.

As a skirt

The plaid print looks magnificent when donned on a suave pencil skirt or a flirty pleated one that oozes charm with any look. Team a dark green plaid pencil skirt with a fitted sweater and sensible heels for a work day at the office. Bring out your pleated plaid skirt with Mary Jane heels and a sweatshirt for a lunch with your ladies.

As a scarf

A pleasure that only the winter gives us, it’s the perfect time to whip out your plaid scarf! Bundle up with a simple knot of the scarf with both ends in front over a solid coloured tunic and tights. For a different way to work the scarf, tie it in an infinity pattern and wear it with a sweater dress and lace-up boots.

As trousers

A modern take on the classic print is with a pair of well tailored trousers in tones of green and navy blue. For a casual night at the pub, combine your plaid trousers with a white t-shirt, a leather jacket and ankle boots. If it’s a business meeting that you’re are headed for, pair nude lace-up heels and a silk shirt with your plaid trousers.

As accessories

If you are afraid of the print weighing down your look, use a small dose of it in by accessorizing with it. Add a hair bow or a pair of pumps in the signature seasonal print over a solid black look or if you’re feeling exceptionally experimental, clash stripes or polka dots with a plaid print bag.

As a dress

The most effortless style of the lot is by wearing plaid as a dress, the choices for which are aplenty. A dark toned plaid shirt dress can be paired with white sneakers for a busy day on the go. A pleated a-line dress paired with printed tights and high heeled pumps is great for a movie night.

As a shirt

When you need your plaid to be versatile, trust a cosy oversized shirt with the print. To add an edge, pair it with gently ripped skinny jeans and ankle boots for a casual date night. For a glamorous take on the shirt, tuck it into a black skater skirt and wear it with opaque tights and heeled boots for a family dinner.
