5 Fab Plaid Finds

By Allison Onyett, Sep 10


Back in the 90s’ anything and everything plaid was in, from grunge men’s flannel shirts worn on teenage girls to cute dresses, long tunic tops, blazers and winter outwear. Like many 90s' trends, this one has come full circle and we are seeing some of our old favourites back in store windows and on the runway this season.

Here’s just a handful of plaid pieces we love…

 

1. Plaid Puffer Vest available at The Gap


This warm Puffer Vest is the perfect casual outerwear accessory. Pair with a turtle neck or oversized sweater, skinny black jeans and Doc Martens (another 90s’ favourite) for the perfect weekend outfit this fall.

2. Stretch Plaid Skirt, available at RW&Co.

 

We like this preppy short skirt's poppy purple colour and classic style (try saying that three times fast!). Pair with a blouse and kitten heels for the office or flats and a sweater for a more casual look.  

 
   

3. Mixed Plaid Short Jacket available at Tristan

 

A modern take on the classic black and white plaid pattern, this boxy jacket works with pants, skirts and denim. But what we really love about it is its versatility; the bottom part of the jacket zips off for a cropped look and it pairs well with almost any colour.

4. Double Faces Rectangle Scarf available at Tristan

An oversized sophisticated scarf like this one is ideal for wearing with a suit. For something a little more unique try wearing it as a skirt; use a wide black belt and a large kilt pin to achieve the look.

5. Knitted Pencil Skirt available at Smart Set

A throw back to the 1950’s, this plaid pencil skirt is the perfect addition to any office wardrobe. Pair it with a turtle neck or blouse and cardigan for a complete 50s’ look.
