Last month, we noticed a growing trend in plaid pieces which gave us serious Clueless nostalgia. It doesn’t seem like this is going to die down soon as more celebrities are stepping out wearing this print. I even found myself buying a red and black pleated skirt, which is a big change for me style-wise and a fun challenge to pair it with the tops I have in my closet.
Since we’ve already listed down plaid items that you can wear, we’re now bringing you a roundup of pieces you can pair with it based on recent OOTDs we spotted. This is also our way of telling you to not be intimidated by plaid and that you can wear this in various occasions.
Jessy Mendiola paired a white camisole with her red plaid pants for a casual look. To make it chic, she wore glossy red heels. You can achieve this look too with any sleeveless top for laidback days. Instead of heels, opt for sneakers or ballet shoes.
Shop: Topshop Ruched Front Cami Top. Available at SM Mall of Asia.
Brown plaid pieces is a good choice for the workplace because the print can be low-key and the colors you pair it with can go from monochromatic to colorful. In Moira Dela Torre’s case, her brown skirt was paired with a flouncy green blouse. We see this being worn in meetings, especially if you don’t want to go for the usual blazer and pencil skirt look.
Shop: Apiece Apart Bravo Pintucked Cotton-Gauze Top. Available on Net-a-Porter.
Another workwear option is wearing colored pants and a neutral-colored top like Sue Ramirez. Instead of a white turtleneck, you can go for black for a sleek look. You can also follow Sue’s lead and wear statement jewelry.
Shop: Zara Turtleneck Sweater. Available at Power Plant Mall.
For parties, you have the freedom to mix up prints, textures, and colors. Take Barbie Imperial for example: She recently wore a glittery blue top with a red plaid skirt. This is perfect for your upcoming Christmas parties. Feel free to experiment with other color combos too.
Shop: Victoria Victoria Beckham Sequined Top. Available on Farfecth.
Don’t be afraid to wear one color like Anne Curtis. For BLK Cosmetics’ latest campaign, they hinged on ’90s icons like Cher from Clueless. Here, she wore a yellow skirt and a jacket over a white top. Again, you can do this with other colors too and make it look more mature to lessen the schoolgirl vibe.
Shop: Bershka Flowing Blazer with Rolled Up Sleeves. Available at Glorietta 2.
