2. Embrace Plaid

As a former Catholic schoolgirl, I often try to stay away from plaid because it brings back bad memories of my school days. However, as I’ve gotten farther away from those days, I’ve embraced plaid, especially in my fall wardrobe, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite trends. If you have the same negative connotations around plaid, give it some time and I promise you’ll come around and it will be an essential in your fall wardrobe too.
