If you want to indulge in the plaid trend, but secretly have a fear of looking like a 90’s mall rat, never fear: these items are subtle, classy and just might be the perfect addition to your already awesome wardrobe.

A cute plaid dress

Look cozy and cute in a midi plaid dress! To complete the look, pair the dress with black boots. This one from Boohoo looks warm and comfortable, and the length is so fun!

Dress shopping involves a lot of variables. Colors and patterns may be the first things you think of, but you should also focus on length. The midi dress is a staple in many clothes closets. In fact, a lot of women rely on midi dresses in all sorts of situations. The lengths of such dresses vary, but they always hang below the knees. They also never reach to the ankles. Midi dresses are excellent for many purposes. The long lengths of such dresses can look formal in many situations, such as while working in an office environment. But changing the accessories you use can suddenly turn a midi-dress into perfect casual piece, especially if it is a “little black dress” and matched with the right pair of plaid heels.
