October 2nd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 4 Ways to Elevate Plaid This Fall

Plaid for fall is about as groundbreaking as florals for spring. But it’s a classic print that is quintessentially autumnal and somehow reinvented each year with new color palettes, new vibes and moods, and unexpected fabrics and shapes.  Don’t just designate plaid to oversize button-down tops and leggings. Instead, take a look at 4 ways to elevate plaid this fall.

1. Plaid Print Mixing

Plaid on plaid is double the fun! To pull off mixing plaid prints, pair contrasting colors and sizes of the print, like Michelle did with her yellow plaid blouse and green plaid suit.

2. Opposites Attract

Style your favorite plaid piece with an unexpected texture like leather or sequins. Bethany takes athleisure to a new level with plaid trousers paired with a sequin hoodie.

3. Go Big With the Print

An exaggerated or stretched plaid in soft colors creates a minimalist look.

4. Suit Up

Undoubtedly the most popular way to elevate plaid this season is with a blazer and/or suit combo.
