CollegeFashionista is keeping tabs on the hottest fall trends, snapping street style shots from campuses everywhere. This week, we’re taking a closer look at a blast from the past: plaid.
If there is a defining clothing item of the ’90s, it is the plaid flannel shirt. It was the go-to pattern of the grunge movement, and along with combat-style boots, ripped denim, and waffle knits, it’s back in a big way.
The versatility of plaid makes it a smart investment. A button-down shirt can be tucked into black skinnies for a casual look, or tied around the waist for a more retro feel. Tartan shorts with ripped fishnets feel perfectly punk, but can also look sharp with tights and a cardigan.
