TRENDS | Going Mad For Plaid

I'm not typically one for plaid as a pattern, (yes so not Canadian of me). However I'm very pleased at how feminine the plaid looks are this season.  It's gone from grudge to runway - from your traditional tartan to a more fresh modern glen plaid. I prefer to wear my plaid as an accessory or trim to my overall outfit and I found the most cosiest scarf from Zara recently that does the trick. (See main image). I've hand picked some plaid ideas for you plaid virgins out there! Hopefully these ideas will get you into some sort of plaid this season. Happy exploring and get mad for plaid!

Shut Up I Love This Plaid

1. Zara Scarf, $39.90 - Love this scarf, it's like a huge blanket and it's super soft. The black lace inset detail was what caught my eye.

2. Party Skirts, $195 - The Armstrong sisters are adding two colors of plaid to their skirt collection! It will be available in green and yellow plaid, both available mid November to early October.

3. Sweat Shirt from, $25.99 - Can't beat this price and a sweat shirt is a must have this fall/winter. Cozy up with some sweat paints or throw it over a black pencil skit, it's more versatile than you think.

4. Jenni Kayne Shoes from, $495 - I'm  a huge fan of her d'orsay style flat. Toss aside your solid colors and try a print on for size.

5. Simone Camille Clutch from, $273 - Celebrity fashion stylist gone handbag designer has a way with textiles. The oversized leather tassel is everything!

6. Joe Fresh Tartan Pants, $49 - Noting gets more traditional than these red tartan slacks from Joe Fresh. Keep it looking fresh with a solid colored cashmere sweater or button up.
