Cute Madras Clothes For Summer

Mad For Madras: Shop 15 Quirky Printed Plays on Summer's Preppier Plaids

Forget schoolgirl plaid — this colorful take on the checkered trend is totally Summer friendly and a bit quirkier, too. To get that "just gone to Nantucket" look without having to venture further than the nearest sunny spot, incorporate a subtle mix of madras-patterned pieces into your warm-weather wardrobe. While the style is grounded in preppier renditions, there's no reason not to inject your own cool-girl sensibility into each madras-laden look. Try a seersucker Bermuda short covered in a cool patchwork print with a slouchy tee and espadrille wedges, don a breezy madras button-up with ripped denim cutoffs for an evening on the beach, or go for bold in a madras blazer-and-trouser combo. If you're feeling this plaid iteration for a pop of Summer prep, shop our editors' madras picks below now.
