STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Punk, Prep and Pretty Plaid for Fall 2010

Ever since grungy Nirvana fans popularized plaid in the 1990s, it has never exactly gone out of style. However, this print has seen a bit of a resurgence over the past few years, and this season grunge is not in the picture. Whether you prefer punk, preppy or just plain pretty, plaid can undoubtedly work for you.

It all starts with a classic plaid button down. This Fashionista looks cute, comfortable and ready for class with hers layered over a basic hoodie and skinny jeans. Her stacked bangles, long necklace and metallic flats transform this ensemble from drab to fab. 

If you like your plaid a little rough around the edges, throw your button-down over a black tank and faux leather leggings. Finish off your look with studded booties and a chunky statement necklace to give your plaid an instant badass appeal. 

For an east-coast-prepster vibe, wear your plaid top under a tailored blazer. Combine it with your skinny jeans and low oxford-inspired heels for a sharp look suitable for days spent in lecture halls or exploring the city of Boston at large. 

Pretty plaid more your thing? Swap out your basic plaid button-down for one with ruffles to add a flirty, romantic feel to your outfit. 

Punk with hardware, preppy with oxfords or pretty with ruffles – no matter where on the spectrum your style falls, rocking plaid is the perfect way to update your fall wardrobe.
