How to Wear Plaid the 2018 Way


Talk about plaid in 2018 and you think more of the street style in the cities rather than students in their plaid skirts or lumberjacks in their plaid shirt. Plaid made a huge comeback and we aren't expecting the trend to dwindle anytime soon.

Nowadays, the term "plaid" is used loosely to include even tartan and checks. While these prints aren't exactly anything new, the correct styling will give them a refreshing touch for a trendier look. Let's look through the street style looks from the Spring/Summer 2019 Fashion Week and see how we can give our plaid outfits an upgrade with the right styling.
