This spring it’s time to channel your inner ‘90s girl. Grunge is a major SS14 trend, which means plaid is everywhere. Wondering how to incorporate plaid into your wardrobe this spring? I’ve made it easy for you and put together a few foolproof outfits that will keep you fashionably edgy this season!
A great option to sport some lovely tartan are these great checkered denim leggings I’ve found for $58 from Topshop. Pair them with a great graphic tee, like this Eleven Paris Kate Moss Mustache Tank, $68, from INTERMIXONLINE for a laid-back look. Finally, add a pair of classic white converse to complete the rocker look, for $59.99, at Softmoc.
Once the weather really warms up, opt for a breezier outfit with this Jean Paul Gaultier Plaid Cropped Top, $485, from 1stdibs. To keep the overall grungy look, grab a pair of high-waisted distressed black jean shorts from ETSY for $44 and a pair of tennis shoes, $55, from Keds. This option is great for daytime activities or a night out with friends!
I love this pair of plaid overall shorts from Forever21 for only $17.80. They’re edgy but comfortable to run around in on a warm summer day. Pair with your favourite shirt underneath, and a timeless pair of black chucks, $59.99, at Softmoc
If you’re looking for a more feminine take on this trend, there are tons of great tartan dresses on the market. I love this version from Ruche called the Brighton Belted Plaid Dress for $43. Looking to make an entire outfit? Add a cute hat to keep the summer sun out of your eyes like this Beekeeper Felt Hat, $46, from Topshop and a round pair of sunglasses like these ones from Monki for $15. Complete the look with these amazing Tory Burch sandals for $285.
I have fallen in love with plaid this season and just can’t get enough of it. There are so many great ways to add a touch of tartan into your closet. Get your grunge on and add some more plaid to your wardrobe. Happy spring ladies!
