Hey ladies, it’s Anna from Fash Boulevard here. It’s official: everyone is going absolutely mad for plaid. You can expect to see checkered and plaid pieces alike making their stamp on cold weather fashion and accessories. These two prints, which are often mistaken for each other, are actually quite simple to tell apart. Checkered is a pattern with alternating squares of color, while plaid has a checkered printed base with stripes incorporated that usually involves more colors than the typical checkered print. Nothing like a fun little lesson in fashion, right?!
Whether you gravitate towards the simplistic symmetry of checkered prints or mixed plaid tartans, don’t underestimate the power of this pattern. These chic checks are not only one of fall’s biggest (and coziest) trends, but they also pack all the punch an outfit needs.
