Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've probably noticed the undeniable rise of the plaid. However, this trend is no fad and I think we should all be taking it as seriously as Cher Horowitz. If you know, you know.

Summer Cuties


I am personally working on the growth of my summer plaid mini dress collection and sincerely advise everyone to do the same.

I would pair this 90's style midi with a fitted white tee and trainers for laid-back, off-duty style.

Keep It Short


A plaid shirt is the print in it's most authentic sense. A plaid shirt-dress, however, keeps the look fresh and teamed with on-trend mules and sunnies or over-the-knee boots in the evening, it can be dressed up or down.

Make It Work For Work


I love the cuteness of a plaid outfit at the office. Keep it girly with a fitted dress and pair with classic courts.

Statement Pants


I love making a statement in a plaid pant. They could easily be workwear with simple court shoes, but style them with platform trainers and a tee and they're perfect for the weekend.

Take It Up A Notch


If you prefer a skirt to a trouser, you won't be disappointed with these picks. Team them with strappy heels and a bodysuit for a real blogger vibe.

This monochrome pair are my faves. Keeping it simple with black and white checks means you can experiment with a bright top and accessories.

Taking Scottish vibes to the next level, this Gucci skirt is unbelievably chic. Styled with a crisp white shirt and delicate heels, I'm obsessed with this look.

Top It Off


You can add a little plaid to a simple outfit with the pop of a plaid top or blouse. Add some extra ruffle details to keep it super on-trend.

This crop from Alice + Olivia is sooooo cute. I would pair with leather culottes or even a chic wrap skirt and sky high heels.

If you're heading away this summer, the plaid trend really wants to come with you. It's a sophisticated print, so why not pair it with a sophisticated all-in-one.

Last Minute...


Don't forget that accessories are totally included in this trend. I love adding a little plaid or check bag to a simple monochrome look.
