Are you Mad for Plaid? Is it a Yay or Nay for you? Truth be told, as far as memory takes me, I always associated plaid’s with a picnic blanket. Now, with this being one of the trends for this coming Spring Season, it brought a little bit of aprehension as I contemplated whether I should or should not wear this particular trend. As I shared with you in my previous post, Spring Forward, plaids was one of the patterns I was willing to try and guess what? I did! I ventured outside the box! I started with a subtle plaid pattern to as they say, “wet my feet” and I hope to eventually move up to trying the larger plaid pattern, Gingham. I decided to pair my plaid trench coat with a solid bordeaux colored pencil dress and blush colored patent leather t-strap pump. I added a chuncky necklace that matched the soft pink of my coat. I sealed the look with my pink lipstick and sunnies.

Here are a few more examples of Plaids I found on the net I hope will encourage you to go for the Plaid!
Fashion Tip: If you think as I did about plaids, I encourage you to give them a chance! There are so many types of plaids. Start by trying a smaller print and go from there. I promise you will not regret it!
