Plaid is one of those trends that is never really going to completely leave. Fitted flannel tops or loose, boyfriend styled ones can add instant comfort and style to any outfit, whether you’re out running errands or just getting ready to go to class. Although you can wear a flannel top in your own unique way, this Fashionista found a totally new and awesome way to incorporate plaid into her ensemble! She added a cool jacket, which pulled together her simple, laid-back look and it is also the perfect transition piece as the weather turns. Her Ray Bans and a dainty gold necklace were great accessories to complete a simple look, while her boots and zippered pants added a touch of edge.

CF: What is your favorite trend?

MA: My favorite trend (which I'm not wearing) is animal prints. It's a way to wear all neutrals (I’m allergic to color), but still adding something cool and unexpected. I have this awesome cheetah print scarf I wear all the time.

How To: To get a look like this Fashionista, start with a neutral base palette, like she did with black. This way you can incorporate cool trends like zippers and pops of color to make it your own. Add a plaid accessory to incorporate another classic trend in a cool, new way. Top it off with some delicate jewelry and you’ve created an effortless look!
