The Edit: 12 (New) Ways to Wear Plaid

(And not look like a school girl.)


Much like ditzy florals are spring’s pattern of choice, plaid belongs to fall. But the print has a long history, specifically with the dreaded school uniform. Luckily, new plaids are popping up on sleek, edgy silhouettes and unexpected pieces like skater shoes and crossbodies. All you need to do is avoid pleats and knee socks and you’ll be looking more McQueen and less co-ed in no time.
