10 Cool Girl Ways to Wear Plaid this Fall

There are certain fabrics and patterns out there that are reminiscent of specific seasons for me. For instance, velvet immediately transports me to Christmas parties and eggnog. Gingham has me seeing fireworks and popsicles on the Fourth of July. The memories that tie themselves to the sensory experiences of these fabrics make them feel timeless and precious. The pattern I associate with fall will always be plaid. This print reminds me of my dad making turkey in the same flannel every Thanksgiving. It’s the memory of picking out pumpkins at the farmer’s market in my pleated school uniform skirt. It’s the feel of sliding into that wool blazer at a new job on the first cold day of the year.

These special moments experienced while wearing plaid are the backbone of this pattern’s effortless durability in fashion. But this year, plaid is being taken to the next level and thrown into the closets of all the “cool girls”. It’s no longer the preppy print of the catholic school girl.
