Go Mad With Plaid!

The fashion world has gone mad for plaid — the print of the season! There are many ways to wear it — from classic British tartans to more mod-inspired bold graphics. It’s a no-brainer no matter what your style is! Make it modern (not old school) with a swingy plaid skirt, a fitted jacket, a great cape or a sexy silk blouse — and wear it with everything you own , and Voila - Instant update!

Fashion forward trendistas will love a short, pleated plaid skirt (a la the kilt) worn with solid leggings. Or reverse the look with a pair of tartan plaid leggings, paired with a solid skirt and boots.

I guess keeping it simple against plaid will be perfect... These models can mix and match, florals and big bold stripes against plaid, but I can't envision myself wearing those... I'd prefer to wear plaid pants with plain black top and pair them with my black patent pumps...
