It seems like every few seasons plaid makes its way back into our lives. I used to own quite a few plaid shirts, but I have no idea where they are. My favorite was purple, black, grey, and white and I always wore it with my grey skinny jeans. I couldn’t get those skinny jeans to go past my knees a few years ago so they are long gone, and I guess my shirt is too.

Anywhoo, this season plaid is making a huge comeback and it’s not just with the tops. Think jackets, coats, blazers, skirts, dresses, shoes, and more. I think I still have this plaid jacket that I purchased from H&M a few years ago. I really love the coat, but it takes some work to put it on, well maybe not a lot of work, but it has more buttons and strings that need to be fastened and tied or you will just look ridiculous walking down the street.

Here are 5 pieces that I love that would be great additions to anyone’s wardrobe. Remember, when it comes to trends you want to pick trends that work for your body type. So be mindful of what you choose. Plaid is a busy print and you do not want to pick an item that draws attention to your problem areas. Take a look at the pieces that I selected below.

Wax On, Wax Off! Waxed Denim

What was that? What are waxed jeans? I’m glad you asked! Waxed jeans are just regular denim pants with a wax coating to add a different shine and texture to the material. Waxed jeans go by other names such as waterproof jeans, painted jeans, or black coated jeans as well. Waxed jeans are also very similar to leather pants. So if you want a more affordable option that allows your skin to breathe easier, then waxed jeans are definitely for you. They come in a variety of colors and I think the perfect cut would be a skinny jean or slim leg/straight leg jeans. To try the trend check out the options below.

 

There are also a number of DIY (Do It Yourself) tutorials on YouTube so check those out as well if you are in a creative mood!

 

I wasn’t familiar with BooHoo.com until I was looking for some American Flag jeans and came across this site. My only question now is “Where have I been?!?!?” Boohoo.com is a great place to find relatively inexpensive items that are on trend and super stylish. Not only is it a great site for women, but they have some amazing pieces for men as well.
