If social media has made one thing clear as of late, it's that plaid is here to stay. It's nearly impossible to scroll through Instagram and not come across this timeless print. So after months of style envy, we decided to investigate. We've narrowed down exactly how to wear plaid like the most fashionable women—and we're here to tell you how it's done.

First, the plaid blazer is an It-girl must. Layer an oversize checked blazer with a graphic tee and vintage jeans to nail the menswear-inspired trend. The best part? Retailers both high and low quickly picked up on this wearable style. Another fashion-girl favorite is plaid pants. Pair your trousers with white patent booties, or dress down your outfit with clean sneakers and a denim jacket. Finally, the checkered skirt is high on our must-have list. Opt for a midi length for an office-appropriate look or a plaid miniskirt for a more modern style.
