2. Large Plaids
The classic plaid print, that can modernize any silhouette, has been flying off the racks in 2015 and will continue to do so in 2016 too. A red plaid shirt tucked in distressed denims with sneakers is just the right outfit for an evening out with friends since decades. This year, lets try this trend differently, shall we?
Style Tips :
- Invest in one classic Red Plaid Shirt. I guarantee, it will last you next ten seasons. Style it with denims or black leather pants, depending on whether you want to go watch a movie or a rock concert.
- Experiment with Plaids and get yourself a maxi dress. This one is for the experimental divas who aren’t afraid to try on the big plaids. Keep the look chic and simple with relaxed hair and small studs in ears
- Try on a plaids saree if you are a saree lover like me. Take the desi cool a notch higher with linen saree. Team with with a lace crop top or a biker jacket for the glam look.
