There’s a reason plaid is a perennial favorite. Checkered looks always manage to make you look polished and pulled together, yet with a little vision, it’s easy to spin the traditionally preppy print in cool, modern ways.

You probably already have a classic combo featuring the plaid piece that you tend to reach for time and time again—cue the go-to button-up and skinny jean pairing. But if you feel like you’re in a fashion rut when it comes to styling the tartan pieces in your closet, look to street style stars for some fresh ideas.
