Plaid Intentions


Fall just wouldn't feel the same without a plaid print. It goes without saying that plaid is the quintessential fall staple every girl needs a little bit of in her wardrobe, and a trend we can never wait to wear once September hits. Not only do the changing leaves bring rich, beautiful colours into our world, but we also see a resurgence of rich colour palettes and pattern in our wardrobes as well.

One of the main benefits is how versatile plaid is and how you can pair it with virtually everything and anything. It's a great way of simply updating your wardrobe and looking fall ready. If you are stuck figuring how to incorporate pattern into your wardrobe we have put a few looks together showing you how to pull off a plaid pattern this fall with ease.


You can create a casual, daytime look while still looking fresh with a plaid scarf thrown around your favourite "perfect tee". Or try tying a flannel plaid shirt around your waist with some boyfriend jeans for a more street-style friendly look. This is a perfect go-to look for a lazy weekend afternoon taking a stroll through the park.

This season we are also seeing a 90's school-girl vibe with plaid (think Cher Horowitz in Clueless with a Queen St. edge). Try pairing this Jordan de Ruiter plaid party dress with a leather jacket, over-sized knit cardigan, or knee high socks to achieve this look with a swipe of a deep berry lipstick to finish it off. Now you're ready for a night on the town!


Plaid doesn't have to bring out your inner grunge girl, it can be office-friendly and overall a very classic look. Try it in a great jacket silhouette paired with a beautiful white blouse or knit sweater and a simple skirt to pull the look together.


Plaid also works well with other patterns if you want to add more interest to your look, especially with a classic staple such as the prep school-inspired skirt. Try pairing it with leopard accessories or even with another print if you are feeling bold and fashion-forward.
