If you’ve been following the frenzy of fashion week month around the globe, you might have noticed that last year’s super trend plaid has been elevated to a new level. Plaid on plaid is the last word on the street. And if you were already squeamish about sporting simple plaid to the office, I can only imagine how you must feel about plaid squared.

The keys to rocking this look at the office are subtlety and deflection. In plain English, pick a plaid in classic colors. Pair with clean lines, plain colors and conservative accessories. Finally, add one more very subtle plaid, like this nude colored plaid scarf from American Eagle

On the weekends, by all means: go nuts. Have fun with your plaids. Layer a checkered dress over a neon plaid workman’s shirt or tie a gingham shirt  as a “tube top” of sorts over another men’s shirt a la street style icon & Moda Operandi creative director Taylor Tomasi Hill. On that note, her Instagram feed as of late has been a great resource and inspiration for rocking plaid on plaid.
