Plaid is obviously a major fall staple, but this season it’s an even bigger trend than ever before!

Nothing feels more like fall than a pretty plaid print — and it’s a great look for fun fall activities, like apple picking or hayrides…but this season it’s about so much more than keeping it casual in a long-sleeved plaid button-down or flannel shirt. From midi-skirts to form-fitting frocks, the pattern gets a sophisticated update — and we aren’t the only ones who can’t get enough of the trend! Just check out Victoria Justice, flaunting her fierce fall fashion sense while in NYC on Oct. 15.
We’re honestly loving this new twist on the classic closet staple. The trend came to life on the Fall 2015 runways at Michael Kors and Altuzarra, (to name a few), and we spotted it on everything from blazers to dresses and trousers. Sure, the print fits right in with the major resurgence of the 70s we’re all feeling right now — but it’s also one of the most wearable trends ever — honestly, go ahead and try to find me one person who says they plan to shun the plaid trend.
From scarves to slip-on sneakers and button-down shirts, there’s so many ways to work it into your wardrobe this fall — but I’m especially loving the more sophisticated vibe you can achieve with the dresses, pleated midi skirts and blazers. A plaid sweater dress can easily go from desk to drinks in no time, while a plaid shirtdress is perfect for a casual Saturday and can instantly be dressed up for a night out.
The ease of the print makes it one of our favorite looks for fall — and after checking out our amazing plaid picks above you’re bound to agree!
