Plaid: the definition of fall. Though this tartan print has been around for centuries, we are always finding new ways to wear it. From runways to fast fashion, this trend can be found anywhere and everywhere. To demonstrate just how easy it is to find and incorporate plaid in your wardrobe, PATTERN collaborated with Goodwill to create four different outfits, urban grunge, classic red, tailored, and pastel, with this checked staple.
Urban Grunge: Inspired by the ’90s, this black and white checked pattern is a standout. Pair it with a jean jacket and ankle boots for a full throwback effect. Add a belt and bam your outfit is complete!
Classic Red: This bold color is the star of the show. When starting to incorporate red plaid in your wardrobe, simple is key. Add a white button down, skinny jeans, and heels for a classic outfit. Pair it with your favorite sleek bag and let your plaid do the talking!
Tailored: Old is always made new again. This trend isn’t just for your grandpa! Pair a classic tailored plaid jacket with your favorite ripped jeans for a more casual look. Add ankle boots and your fav cat mug to bring this look into the twenty-first century.
Pastel: Tone down the plaid trend with this muted color pallet that anyone can pull off. Pair your pastel print with other soft tones and a fun fall sandal. Mix in different textures to elevate the look!
