Mad for Plaid: How to Wear the Trend Like a Grown-Up

AnthropologiePlaid is back in fashion for fall, but too many Hollywood fashionistas have interpreted the trend as grunge-era button-down shirts worn with jeans. Hello, high school.

That's why I was thrilled to see Anthropologie take the trend and give it a grown-up twist in its September catalog.

Now this is the kind of look I could warm up to!

This Easy Keeper skirt (Anthropologie, $138) is a standout piece that could easily provide all the plaid you need for fall.

And there are plenty more beautiful, adult plaid options out there that will fit just about any budget.

Check them out, and see more ideas on how to wear the look from Anthropologie, after the jump.






AnthropologieI love how smart this Steadfast & Whimsy skirt (Anthropologie, $138) looks with a leather jacket and lace-up boots. You could totally pull this off at your kid's next field trip. Oh yes you could!


AnthropologieMixing prints is such a hot trend right now, and while I could never put these two pieces together and make it work, this model totally rocks it. I would absolutely wear this Garment District Blazer (Anthropologie, $138) on its own, though.


AnthropologieScore points with the horsey set in this Made to Measure skirt (Anthropologie, $138). It is awesome.


Macy'sA great way to work plaid into your wardrobe without spending a ton of money is with a classic scarf, like this DKNYC Scarf (Macy's, $39.99 on sale).


DillardsI'm head over heels for this Ralph Lauren Minnie silk plaid skirt (Dillards, $99.50). This skirt will never go out of style.


AnthropologieYou belong in Scotland with this Puckered Plaid Trench (Anthropologie, $188). So, so pretty ...

The best thing about these plaid pieces is that they will never go out of style! So don't be afraid to invest in a classic plaid separate or two this season.

Are you mad for plaid?
