Checked and plaid tartan style is back for spring 2013. Louis Vuitton revived the checked print in large square intersections with vibrant colors such as green and yellow. He also made the black and white checkered print even more luxurious both in refine squares or in stunning larger checks. Plaid and checkered prints are very similar that they´re mistakenly taken as the same. But whether you´re into plain checked symmetry or the more Scottish inspired plaid tartans, here are some spring checked and plaid prints for you.
Spring Plaid Shirts for Women
There are more plaid shirts for women available in the market than checked shirts. Personally, I´m a fan of this tartan shirt, see how I wore the plaid shirt with military shorts. But if you want to come close to Louis Vuitton´s spring looks, choose plaid shirts in bright colors such as yellow, light green, or pink.
Spring Plaid Women´s Dresses
When it comes to dresses, avoid something in refined checked because it has that elementary kiddie look in it. Go for a sun day plaid sleeveless in bright colors such as turquoise to wear on warm days, or opt for dark-colored plaid or checked dresses for formal looks.
Spring Plaid Trousers for Women
For a casual street look, a pair of pink plaid skinny pants worn with sneakers would work. But if you´re into more polished pants look, go for trousers with clean plaid patterns such as these white and olive plaid pants from Nike. Wear them with high heels or ankle boots and team with a bright-colored monochromatic top.
Plaid Tops and Skirts
If you´re to wear a plaid or checked print from head to toe, there are two ways to do it. Either you look for a plaid set – top and skirt, or you combined two different but complementary plaid patterns. You can decide on smaller plaid pattern for you top and on larger plaid for your skirt. Finish the look with black or nude platform pumps.
Plaid Jacket and Coats for Women
On cooler days, especially in early spring, wear a plaid coat or jacket to keep you cozy. A plaid print shirt jacket looks great with dark skinny jeans and lace-up boots, while a plaid swing coat and plaid toggle coat will look best both with skinny jeans and dresses.
