Plaid is everywhere right now. It's one of the hottest trends around. Let's talk about how to style plaid without looking like a grunge rocker or a lumberjack.

Everyone has been stopping me in Brooklyn to talk about these shoes. The VIONIC Upright Faros Fringe booties make everyone look. They are from Vionic (yes, the brand known for putting comfort first). Well, these aren't just comfy, they are also right on trend. Fringe + studs = awesome.

How to Style Plaid
A little goes a long way. Wear just one piece of plaid.
Pick neutral accessories to make the plaid pop.
Go for interesting silhouettes, a plaid shirt is obvious. This dress is a little unexpected, as would be a great plaid tote.
