Not many patterns have the ability to evoke the unlikely combination of sophistication and grunge quite like plaid can. Perhaps it's because the print has embodied everything from school-style uniforms to '80s punk fashion. Try the trend with a bold black-and-red miniskirt or a babydoll dress in understated hues. Regardless of how you wear it, the pattern will always be both subtly seductive and slightly demure.
