TREND: Perfectly Plaid

This in-between weather that we have been experiencing has proven to be a challenge when it comes to fashion choices. Deciding what to wear on a day-to-day basis this time of year is a constant struggle. The key to dealing with this unpredictable weather is layering or keeping a few transitional pieces in your wardrobe at all times. Today’s Fashionista kept it simple on bottom with dark denim and neutral, knee high boots. On top she drew interest by layering a classic trench over a lightweight, plaid blouse with an accent tie around the neck. Plaid is usually reserved for fall, but seems to be continuing on through the spring season making it the perfect transitional piece.

The gingham print can be incorporated into just about any fashion piece. In recent runway shows and style sections in the popular, fashion magazines plaid has been featured in chic coats, shirt-dresses, headpieces and the ever-so classic “lumberjack” style shirt. Some of the more daring Fashionistas have even worn this trend on bottom as tights or pants. To make sure your plaid piece stands out, stick to one key piece in the tartan pattern and surround it with neutral basics to prevent your outfit from appearing too busy. Plaid has consistently been a must-have trend year after year, so add a little plaid into your wardrobe for either the crisp spring weather or next year’s icy cold winter.

Hint: When choosing plaid pieces for spring opt for your plaid to be in colorful hues or lightweight fabrics such as comfortable cotton or chiffon.
