Keeping It ‘Plaid’ and Simple!

We see tartans/plaids making a comeback into casuals this season and we cannot help but notice its pleasing and humongous response! And don’t worry as it’s not just your dad’s plaid or the cozy blankets that we are talking of! Speaking of tartan – There is no better person (fictional or otherwise) who has contributed to the proliferation of this momentary print more than Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone).

Not only is it casual madness but we also spotted this print in Shruti Sancheti’s show on day 4 of Lakmé Fashion Week 2014.

In this post, we will tell you some easy and interesting ways of styling tartan/plaid:

Bottoms:

The season’s key print can be worn in the form of slouchy trousers paired with any solid colour top or tank. Toss in some head gear in the form of a beanie, bandana or hairband to complete this look. As the look suggests a sporty feel, backpacks go really well with it.

Another chic way to style this print is to go for a back-to-school look with tartan/plaid skirts, flowy, bodycon or tailored. These kinds of skirts have a feministic appeal also leaving enough room for experimentation. It serves as a perfect casual day look tossed in with some junk jewellery! Also, play with colours if you want to make this into an evening look.

Tartan/plaid shirts are the easiest ways to wear this print, in case you are not sure of how to style it. Button-down shirts or left open with tanks underneath serve as casual looks best suited for day time ventures. Team them up with ripped jeans and denim shorts for classic tartan casuals.

Not widely explored but another amazing way to style tartan/plaid is in the form of semi-casual blazers and waistcoats. They help in breaking the monotony of an outfit, at the same time appearing as statement pieces.
