Plaid is a print with myriad associations—private-school girls in uniform, hunky dudes in flannel, Scottish men in kilts—and while most of them aren’t exactly the epitome of high fashion, designers embrace tartans and checks season after season.

This is good news for the rest of us: In the real world, plaid is a versatile, easy-to-wear choice—it can be country-club classic in khaki, gray, or navy blue; punky in black and red; or offbeat in bright pink, purple, or green. And, yes, the print can look as autumnal as crisp orange leaves, but it works just as well for months when the weather is warming up, whether on punchy madras dresses, layered jumpers, or oversized outerwear.
