No matter the time of year, plaid can do you no wrong.
Whether you're channeling festive vibes, schoolgirl chic or garage grunge, the pattern attracts the eye in ways both minimalists and maximalists can appreciate.
For instance, take Victoria Beckham, proponent of all things chic, streamlined and neutral. In a refreshing move, Posh paired a long, plaid coat with bright bottoms for a crisp, boardroom-appropriate look. The trick to pulling off this outfit involves taking a subtle, accenting color in the plaid and finding a solid pant in a vibrant shade of the same hue.
