A Week Wearing Plaid Is a Lot More Chic Than You Think

Dec 16 2013 - 6:00am

With celebrities playing style muses, we could wear plaid just about every day of the week — and we're daring you to do the same. Sure, it might be easy to tire of one print day after day, but not if you do it like this. Gwen Stefani [1] and the rest of this very style-savvy pack of Hollywood trendsetters have seven different ways to wear it — from polished to prep and even something for the grunge-loving girl. Click to get inspired for a week's worth of outfits.


If you follow Anna Kendrick [2]'s lead and swap your solid pencil skirt for a plaid one, you might just end up with a much cooler work outfit, especially if you add a leather jacket.


Take the smart casual route with your plaid on cropped pants like Olivia Palermo — further the effect with movie-star shades and a slouchy sweater.


Fight the midweek slump with an outfit that's as easy as it is eye-catching. Just add a plaid button-down to jeans and a leather jacket to capitalize on the cool-girl grunge trend à la Jessica Alba [3].


If you're just looking to get a hint of a girly vibe, Alexa (who else!?) proves plaid can be pretty when splashed across an airy, off-the-body dress. Take her style cues and ground yours with flat boots and a black boyfriend blazer for day.


Your going-out look need not be too sexy, as Olivia Palermo proves a plaid shirt and fringed skirt hit just the right cool-cum-eclectic note that gets a statement-making finish with hot-red heels.


Plaid can play after hours too — just look for it in a structured cocktail frock and team with non-competing accessories in neutral shades.


Cara Delevingne shows off plaid it its most grungy, teaming the new printed pants with flat leather boots and a beanie for instant '90s appeal. Nonchalant layers make for a perfect lazy-day outfit that's got a bit more edge.
