Hi, ladies. It’s Anna from Fash Boulevard here again. As we approach the end of summer, I know a lot of you are itching for a reason to curl up cozily in front of the fire, sip your pumpkin spice lattes and scarf-stalk your favorite Instagrammers. But let’s face it, the perpetual 85-plus degree weather is a serious bubble buster. So, while we anxiously await the soft breeze of a perfect autumn afternoon, I’ve found a fun and easy way to infuse a little fall flair into your rotation long before the leaves are crackling below your feet…

Bold plaid prints have been a quintessential fall fashion staple for years and are a great way to sprinkle a little bit of autumnal flair into your warm weather wardrobe. From plaid skirts to printed button-down tops, it’s time to pull out your favorite plaid pieces and log some hours with them before the temperatures drop. The most important thing to remember when rocking a pre-fall plaid ensemble is to avoid flannel and heavy weight fabrics. The goal is to look warm and cozy; not overheated and uncomfortable. To help beat the warm weather blues, I’ve pulled together a few pre-fall plaid outfit inspiration boards below. Happy shopping!
