Last month, we gave you 20 plaid shopping finds that would leave you looking less like a farmer and more on trend. Now that temps have dropped and the winter weather is really starting to move in, we want to walk you through how to wear the pieces you’ve already picked up or plan to purchase later. Wearing the rustic trend isn’t much different from wearing plaid, except pieces are either made from flannel and/or have a buffalo check print like traditional lumberjack attire. But don’t worry, we found nine hot pieces that will leave you looking less like Paul Bunyan and more like a tartan trailblazer.
Update your wardrobe with 9 plaid picks and our styling tips below.
