TREND: Spectrum of Plaid

Despite the fact that the Boston weather is preventing us from embracing spring fully, you better believe it – warm weather is on its way! This Fashionista looks chic in her plaid blazer paired with low-key ankle-skimming skinny pants and Converse, proving that this pattern is making a major comeback for the spring season. Soon enough it will be time to pack up your winter flannels and swap them out for lightweight versions.

As Charlotte Ronson showed in her spring collection, grunge is back but in a less heavy, more feminine manner. Revive the '90s in a modern way by wearing a plaid dress, but make it current by pairing it with a structured denim jacket. If you love jamming out to Nirvana, bring the grungy look back full circle by throwing on a pair of Dr. Martens.

Grunge not really your thing? Do not fret! There is a more clean-cut way to integrate plaid into your wardrobe, and it’s not exactly revolutionary. After all, plaid is ubiquitously associated with school uniforms. So make like those preppy private school kids and dust off your espadrilles (flats or wedges both work!), because they would look great with a breezy plaid button down. Wear it with a pair of white skinny jeans, and accessorize with a canvas tote bag to lug your schoolbooks and voila! The perfect preppy plaid look.

Whether you want to get down and dirty in true grunge style or clean up a bit in pretty prep gear, make a note of this week’s Fashionista’s plaid garb – it will come in handy this spring.
