Plaid is back, ladies! Or was it ever gone? We’ve spotted a few Chicistas lately wearing bits of plaid here and there and we couldn’t help but get excited– not to mention that it suits this time of year color wise.

This trend comes to us this season mostly in scarves to give the look some well needed color that the winter seems to drain out from our wardrobe. The more daring girls have been seen wearing the print in long wool coats (also trending) mostly with black leather. Celebs like Emma Watson and Alexa Chung favor this trend and give the rest of us ideas on how to wear it.

Today we have for you 4 easy and chic ways to wear plaid. From preppy with an edge to an all-American equestrian girl, these looks will make you look like you’re trendiest girl around.
