Plaid slash tartan clothing are very in style right now. People all over are wearing it, giving the traditional cowboy shirt a run for it’s money. While the most frequent of these patterns is bought as a shirt, dressed, skirts, shoes, jacket and basically everything can be found in plaid.
Plaid is a fairly versatile fabric. Though I haven’t seen it pulled off as super fancy, it can be dressed up a bit. It is mostly just a casual something, however.
The two sets below show examples of how you could wear plaid.
I personally own two plaid tops. One is an older light blue top from the depths of my moms closet. I wear it opened a bit with a belt and a statement necklace. The second top I own I just got for my birthday. It’s black, white and red, my three favorite colors. It was from Forever 21. It’s nice with a belt for school.
1) This first look casual for a day on the town or perhaps school. The jewlery and clutch might be a bit much for some as a school looks, but it’s pretty wearable for a day on the town. Simple, cute and functional.

2) This second look is more of a fancy occasion. This isn’t something you would wear to a formal dinner, but perhaps a lunch date or a more casual dinner. The dress is simple with a nice defined waist. The accessories add to the dress.
