It’s a plaid, plaid world this fall with the checked fabric evoking sweet to edgy, depending on the design.

I love plaid any season, but especially in the fall when it gives a Norman Rockwell ethos to everything. With many of the plaid offerings in flannel, you can take plaid to Kurt Cobain Seattle grunge edgy or adopt a cool country-meets-urban vibe with boots and denim.

However you serve up your plaid, you will love the pieces that we’ve curated for you. With so many options, you can check (no pun intended) a plaid fashion piece off your shopping list with ease.

The dip dye treatment is a fresh, fun option for vintage plaid shirts. Edgy with boots and leggings, it goes casual layered over a henley with boots.
