Plaid Outfits That Will Give You Zero School Uniform Vibes

With everyone from our favorite emerging brands like I.Am.Gia and Miaou to heavy hitters in the Tibi and Rosie Assoulin category pushing plaid for spring, our favorite influencers, editors, and trend setters have definitely gotten the memo. It’s no surprise, then, that I had such trouble narrowing down my favorite street style shots in the classic print to a mere 13. Not to mention the will power it took to curate my dozens of plaid products I’m loving right now to a more-digestible number under 20. Nonetheless, I did it, and the result is a seriously inspirational group of plaid-covered outfits you’re going to want to copy ASAP. Luckily, you can because—not to brag, but—I think you’re going to love the shopping picks we narrowed down for you. But enough of my trying to convince you. Simply see for yourself below.
