I don’t think I’ve been this excited to don a plaid skirt since… ever?
As your stereotypical post-Catholic school girl, the plaid skirt was never a fashion statement for me. The nineties punk rock piece/Brittany Spear’s infamous ‘Baby One More Time’ skirt just didn’t translate into my adolescent years outside of the weekdays.
However, thanks to a few trusted designers, it’s making a comeback this season. And in a big way. Just the other week my stylish roommate purchased one of the coveted red plaid minis and it’s already disappeared from the Zara. Cross your fingers that I can still find this affordable replacement if I don’t get my hands on the skirt below.
Now don’t forget the opaque tights!
Just avoid wearing one with white button-downs and pigtails, please?
What would you pair with a plaid mini this season?
