Tartan is a timeless trend we see every year and although it can be worn year round, there’s something very special about the checks during the colder months. The second I see this plaid print hit the stores come fall I get excited about the holidays and everything it entails. Honestly, for me, Christmas is not complete without a closet full of flannels, tartan, and buffalo checks! And the best thing about it, this checked-print can be worn so many ways.
Despite being a bold print, tartan is very versatile. You can make it the focal point of your outfit, use it as an accent, or utilize it to make an even bigger statement (think print on print). Since plaid tends to be a more preppy classic, it’s nice to it paired with unexpected pieces. For example, Bradley from Luella and June pairs her plaid coat with edgy leather leggings and Devon from Devon Rachel pairs her plaid midi skirt with a fun graphic sweater. You can also go glam like Liz from Sequins and Stripes by pairing a classic plaid buttondown with a sequin skirt, opaque black tights, and booties. All three looks show just how versatile the print can be and how you can take a preppy piece and make it your own.
Tartan is one of the easiest and fun prints to wear during holiday season. Regardless of how you style it, you will look and feel on trend! Here are some of my favorite plaid-printed picks.
