Fall is just around the corner, which means there are plenty of fresh new fashion trends to take into consideration.
One of our absolute favorite looks of the season is a popular pattern that genuinely needs no introduction: plaid.
The classic tartan has been around for years, but this season, it's making a major comeback in more ways than one!
Designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Celine and Gucci sent out a series of runway models in tailored looks featuring chic checks in various sizes and colors.
One glance at the fall runways from New York, Milan and Paris, and it was clear that nearly every designer from Reem Acra and Edun to Rebecca Minkoff and Mulberry, had plaid on the brain.
We spotted oversized coats and wide-legged trousers to playful party dresses and leather-trimmed tops, all decked out in the charming pattern.
Plaid makes a statement all on its own, so pick a color palette that speaks to you, your coloring and lifestyle and pair with distressed denim, leather leggings or even, a pencil skirt for the office.
Or follow the lead of the always-elegant Kate Middleton, who smartly bundled up in a plaid coat to differentiate herself from a sea of solid colors.
