90’s Plaid Revival

Screen Shot 2013-11-05 at 7.56.06 AM

Kurt Cobain, ripped jeans, Doc Martins, Birkenstocks and plaid flannel shirts, this trend screams 1990’s grunge resurgence. The key to making it more ladylike and updated, and not looking like you’re schlepping to class or going to a Nirvana concert at the Viper Room… AS IF, is in the details.

Rock this trend and be all that and a bag of chips! Pair your plaid coat with a sleek leather shift dress and booties. Try a plaid scarf, around the neck or at the waist, with tailored black slacks, a crisp white button down, and pointy toe pumps. Or tie your plaid button down around your waist but ditch the baggy ripped jeans for a pair of well fitting skinnies and heels.

Below are some of my favorite looks. Also, scroll to the bottom for where you can drop some Dead Presidents on this trend.
