Plaid has sloooowly been inching its way back onto the fashion radar. It peaked back in the nineties, thanks to grunge rock and the cast of Beverly Hills 90210. But plaid is back and, in small doses, is better than ever. The Bombshell outfit to your right, available at Macy's, is a perfect example of how to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe.
The cut of the shirt is very flattering, with the cutout bustline and solid camisole underneath. The camisole serves two important purposes: covering up your assets (obviously) and breaking up the pattern to avoid overwhelming the outfit. Paired with light khaki pants, the plaid gets all the attention it deserves, without coming across as too serious. Keep it light, keep it playful.
Avoid camp-style shirts (the boxy button up plaid versions), keep the plaid pattern under control and have fun with this trend. It's very 1950's pinup, when done right. Very Bombshell!
