You can always get away with plaids and checks irrespective of it being summer,winter,monsoon or autumn. There is a minor difference between plaids and checks . While checks are thin , equally spaced horizontal and vertical lines plaids are broad horizontal and vertical lines that are of varying distance from each other. Either way , here are a few tips you should keep in mind while playing around with these criss cross of lines

1)      Always pair a checkered/ plaid item with solid colours. You don’t want to be looking like a mess with too many patterns and designs across your clothes

2)      Also NEVER pair one kind of plaid/checkered item with another one even if it’s of a different colour or shade

3)      You could also accessorize your outfit with a plaid / checkered tie or scarf.

4)      If you’re going for the schoolgirl look Pick a plaid skirt with traditional colors, like red and black or navy and black. Pair it up with a plain white shirt. black socks, and black flats.

5)      When it comes to checked shirts , remember that oversize is NOT a mistake. Team up loose checked shirts with jeans or leggings for a laidback and casual look.

6)      You can also wear a form fitting plaid dress with flats for a casual look and heels/boots for a dressier look.

7)      If you plan to wear plaid/checked shorts , it will look great with a solid coloured polo shirt or a loose formal shirt that can be left out or tucked in .

8)      Checkered shoes are a huge fad these days. However make sure you pair them up with solid colours and casual outfits.

9)      Checkered/ Plaid hoodies is another great item that will look great with skinny jeans or solid coloured shorts

10)  Plaid/Checked pants are an absolute NO NO and should be avoided at all costs.

11)  Checkered clothes usually have a slimming effect. Ruffles on a simple checkered top can add to this effect.

When it comes to checks and plaids you always have an option of dressing up or dressing it down, casual or formal, sporty or feminine.
