While battling a winter cold is no doubt a bummer, there are definitely a few perks to strutting the streets during freezing months. Among these perks are snow angels, snow boots and for many trendy style lovers, the reemergence of plaid. Whether ultra cool plaid or tartan, casual button-ups reign supreme during cold weather and luckily, there are tons of fabulous pairings to make the look chic and ready to hit the streets. Though some might automatically associate this pattern with a lumberjack, leave it to fashionistas to find its true style capabilities.
Our favorite way to rock plaid during daytime is to pair it with edgy pieces to give our strut a dose of attitude. Whether worn with boyfriend jeans or a pair of black leggings, plaid pairs fabulously with a variety of pieces. Pair a red tartan flannel shirt with black leather shorts and opaque tights. A black knit beanie, red lipstick and a pair of black ankle boots adds an awesome hint of grunge. To take the look for a nighttime spin, tuck it into a leather pencil skirt or black skinny jeans paired with sophisticated patent leather pumps. A chunky gold chain necklace provides that extra spark of sassiness needed to drive the look into ultra hot territory.
