Plaid is a staple for fall. There’s no other print that is so characteristic of a season the way this is. With it coming in a variety of colors and kinds, any outfit in pretty much any style can be built around it. Whether it be a skirt, a dress, or a classic fall flannel, the season for plaid to reign supreme is here. Pair it with sweaters, jackets, and leather. Wear it in every color from warm orange, neutral brown, and vivid green. Now is the time to make plaid a cornerstone of your fall closet with these five classic but modern fall looks.

Pattern mixing is such a fun way to spice up an outfit. Stripes and plaid can go so well together when you match it up correctly. Matching colors is one of the best ways to do that. Black, white, and gray are classic and so easy to put together to create a look. This cute pleated plaid skirt with a side buckle is so perfect for fall, especially with the addition of this cozy knit sweater. My favorite piece in this look are these cute sheer socks with silver stars on them. So cute sticking out of these boots. This updated school girl look with cozy touches is a stunner for fall.

These tones just scream fall! Matching the colorful leaves, these tans, reds, and oranges in this look are perfect for crisp autumn mornings. This plaid flannel is the perfect building block for a fall wardrobe. Tucked into this faux leather skirt is just one look you can make. I’m also loving this khaki field jacket in general for fall but especially with this look because it breaks up these warm tones with some neutrals. Also loving these gorgeous camel knee-high boots for this look to add some more neutral colors to the look. For cooler days, add this richly colored scarf. Finish it off with these knot earrings with your hair tucked behind one ear to show them off.

Firstly, I love the details on this plaid dress. The bow on the front is just too cute. You know I love jumper dresses and this one is just another one to add to the list of Cutest Jumpers Ever. With these neutral colors, pretty much any color shirt would look great under it. But I’m loving this gorgeous mustard colored turtleneck. So bright and fun against the brown tones in the rest of the looks. Let this collar necklace peek out from underneath the turtleneck for a pop of metallic. These platform boots are so cute and perfect to go with nearly every look now that boot season is upon us. Finish this look with cute pigtail braids, this felt hat, and tortoiseshell hoops.

Green is one of my favorite colors for fall! This deep, dark color is gorgeous against the warm tones. Especially when green plaid isn’t as common as the warm tones, this dress would be different. I love this shirt dress alone as well as with a sweater. This collegiate-styled sweater thrown over this cute dress creates a cozy look that’s a mix of classic and preppy. Let the dress collar stick out from under the sweater and fold the cuffs of for a finished look. Two ways to wear your hair: down and pushed back with the silk scarf as a headband or in a high ponytail with this ribbon scrunchie. I’m also loving these white boots (can you say major fall trend) to keep this look modern, trendy, and chic.

Plaid shirt, check. Plaid dress, check. Plaid skirt, check. What’s left? Plaid boots, of course! Let these plaid booties be the focal point of the outfit and strut all fall with these statement shoes. This dress is too cute. I love the shape of it and I absolutely love the sleeves. It’s perfectly equal parts cozy and cute. These opaque black tights with a minimalist garter detail and beret tie the look together. Also, I’m loving this round purse. How cute is it for an everyday statement? You can’t go wrong with an all-black look. But adding the plaid booties let them stand out and be the star of the outfit.
