Plaid or tartan has been one of Fall’s most popular new trends but one that I have not fully embraced until now. Here’s why: I went to private schools almost all of my life which means that uniforms were a huge part of my wardrobe. Although plaid can be seen as a sweet nostalgic memory of my school girl days, it really just reminds me of rulers being put to my knee to measure the length of my skirt and detention. So needless to say, this is a trend that I was not excited about taking on. After seeing the trend unfold, however, I realized that plaid has taken on a whole new look. School girl has transformed into cool girl by mixing the preppy look with leather moto jackets, boots and high heel shoes.
I went with a plaid t-shirt dress from River Island and paired that with black tights and black booties. The possibilities for this trend are endless though. Check out my top picks for Fall:
