It’s on tops, bottoms, dresses, bags, scarves – even shoes! It’s plaid! Celebrities have fallen in love with the check pattern this season in hot hues like fire engine reds, and jewel-tones like purple and green. The pattern looks great in all forms. Wear it like Vanessa Simmons as an evening gown. Or rock Rihanna‘s rockstar look with a cropped jacket and jeans. Kelly Ripa opted for a simple plaid shift dress and Gwen Stefani‘s tartan-style coat is ideal for fall weather. The key to wearing is to stick to one plaid piece per outfit, whether apparel or accessories. Plaid patterns can be overpowering so moderation is key.
