Kurt Cobain, Scrunchies, Clueless, and plaid all have something in common. They all were devoured by the masses in the 90’s.  Seeing as everything old is new again, here’s my take on one of falls hottest trends. If the thought of going all out “grunge” is as intimidating as a Kid N’ Play hi top haircut, mix in a few of these plaid pieces to update your everyday wardrobe.

1.Classic Plaid Pants-  Because the print on these pants is smaller, you can rock them as a neutral basic. I love these because you can dress them up with a slouchy grey Henley tee and a crisp wool blazer for work, or throw on combat boots,  a faded graphic tee, and a motorcycle jacket for running around town. You can purchase these here.

2. Tartan Plaid Nylon Cosmetic Bag- Not ready to look like you just raided Courtney Loves closet? Add a subtle dose of this fab print with this cosmetic bag. If you decide you want another dose of this decade, there’s just enough room for some black liner and burgundy lipstick.  You can purchase this here.

3.Cross the Byline Dress- I am slightly obsessed with this dress. I love that the print is oh so on trend, but the cut is timeless. You can purchase this here.

4.Frayed Tartan Plaid Scarf- I just purchased this the other day, and I doubt I’m going to be able to hold off for the cold weather.  The fabric is so soft, and is an easy way to spice up skinny jeans and a jacket. you can purchase this here.

5.Red Plaid Tartan Design Backpack- This is a perfect addition for the upcoming school year, and is functional way to rock this trend.  You can purchase this here.

6.Mango Plaid Heeled Shoes- I envision these with dark wash jeans, and a black blazer for a smart, sophisticated  look. Add a patent leather clutch and you will look more polished than punk.  you can purchase these here.

7.Scented Plaid Candle- Add a little 90’s love to your climate without becoming destitute.  I also love that you can reuse the tin long after your candles last flame.  You can purchase this here.


Regardless if you embrace this pattern or not remember….
