When we hear “plaid,” we typically think lumberjacks and school uniforms. But, as proven by the following fashion-minded ladies, it can also be incredibly stylish. Here, seven plaid outfits—from flannels and coats to trousers and skirts—you’re going to want to copy all fall long.
7 Plaid Outfits You'll Want to Copy Immediately
1. Plaid Shirt + Skinny Jeans + Bomber Jacket
Let’s start with the casual basics: a flannel and jeans. To spice it up a little bit, while still maintaining a certain effortlessness, toss a cropped bomber on top and tuck the skinnies into flat leather boots. Voilà—weekend look complete.
2. Plaid Shirt Dress + Plaid Scarf + Booties
A dress and ankle boots is one of our go-to pairings for fall, so obviously we have to try it with an equally seasonal print. And doubling down with a coordinating scarf is a risk, sure, but kind of the cutest one.
3. Plaid Coat + White Jeans + Bright Loafers
4. Plaid Pants + Moto Jacket + Pumps
Want to look like the coolest woman at the holiday party? Wear this. Slim-cut plaid trousers with a cropped leather moto looks edgy while still being appropriate and stylish. And the pointy-toe pumps are the perfect ladylike touch.
6. Plaid Blouse + Tweed Jacket + Jeans
Business on the top, party on the bottom. We might swap out the sandals for something a bit more weather-appropriate (like mid-calf boots), but we love the idea of mixing a buttoned-up top half with trendy raw hems on the bottom. You could also swap out the jeans for black trousers and head to the office like the stylish boss you are.
