Plaid and tartan are prints that always have a place in our fall wardrobes and this season designers, celebrities and bloggers are having fun with this classic print trend.  This fall plaid is straying away from its schoolgirl skirt roots and branching out into more sophisticated grown-up territory. Whether it be mixing plaid with florals à la Givenchy or layering chic tartan under double breasted trenches with rich oxblood accessories as seen on the Celine fall runways.  Other notable design houses like Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and Gucci all showed a series of stunning plaid and tartan pieces that made us swoon. Whether you opt for plaid trousers, dresses, coats or skirts, you’ll be sure to look uber chic in this kilt inspired print this fall.

Plaid dresses seem to be a favorite on the runways this season, Reem Acra, Karen Walker, Emerson and Yves Saint Laurent all showed lovely plaid dresses ranging from fierce to playful. A plaid dress is the perfect way to work a little plaid into your wardrobe this fall, we suggest taking a cue from the Karen Walker fall runway show and going with a monochrome double breasted plaid trench dress.  Throw on some simple white pointed pumps and you’ll be good to go, this look is perfection for the office and with some minor adjustments it can also be made perfect for date night. Just swap out those pointed pumps for sexy knee high boots.
