Plaids have sprung up on the Spring fashion scene! I wrote about an array of Spring trends in my previous post, however I didn’t talk about plaids part and how they fit into this Spring’s lineup of fabulous trends. This season plaids aren’t just for wearing when doing yard work. Plaids have a fun more sophisticated role this year. I love plaids because they take on a casual-glam feeling that I love when paired with the right accessories. I will show you a few different ways to wear plaids in a fun,stylish, sophisticated way.

Casual Day Out
When you are going out doing your normal everyday errands, it is easy to fall into a pattern of boring wardrobe. However it takes the same amount of effort to look put together as it does to look unkempt. A plaid is an easy print to wear during the day that does not feel too fussy. Pair a plaid top with boyfriend cut jeans and loafers. Accessorize with a long silky scarf wrapped infinity style and diamond stud or cubic zirconia earrings. If you like more height pair with a wedge or pump!

If you are going out to a semi dressy dinner. Plaid can be the perfect dinner companion! Wear your plaid top with a flirty skirt and opaque black tights.
