How to Wear — The Plaid Trend

Plaid is everywhere this Autumn/Winter season, having been showcased by big names like Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren in their runway shows. It's always been a favourite of mine, so I'm pleased as punch! It can be a little overwhelming, though—you're definitely going to stand out a mile if you parade around in plaid from head-to-toe. Not that that's a bad thing, but if you want to go a little subtler, then here's a bit of inspiration:

Plaid tights look beautiful with simple black — this Black Viscose / Polyester Dress and these Black Ballerina Shoes, for example. Add a red bolero to pull it all together, and your favourite red/gold/black jewellery for a bit of sparkle!
