When it comes to pattern, my theory is always more is more. I double or even triple up on prints, mix my matches and just go crazy with pattern play!

Fall is the easiest time to get creative with your patterns because you can work with layers. If you’re pattern-shy, you can downplay a printed blouse with a solid cardie or scarf (or both), paired with jeans and booties. But if you’re a bit bolder (like me) you can layer on the prints for some serious Fall fun!

Today’s look is all about my favorite Fall print, plaid! Plaid is a seasonal fail-safe, so you know you’ll wear these checkered favorites year after year. It can be dressed up or down and gives you a great “outdoor” feel, even if you’re just wearing it to the office. A plaid button-down is a Fall must have for every single wardrobe, and with affordable finds at Old Navy (like mine), you can afford to double, triple or even quadruple up on this forever-Fall trend. Since I’m a little pattern crazy, I sifted through Old Navy.com for all of the printed pretties to give my plaid wardrobe a serious refresher!Mad about Plaid !

Mad about Plaid yet? If so, here are SIX fun ways to wear it this month:

Just a little bit – Unsure about wearing pattern? Take a Fall flannel and tie it around the waist of a black bodycon dress. This will give you just a pinch of print without driving you mad.
Pattern Shy – Pair it solids for a silent statement. Layer your plaid popover under a solid sweater or cozy cardigan and sprinkle with neutrals.
Easy Outfit Maker – Pick one plaid accessory or outerwear piece and plan everything else around it. Try a plaid blanket scarf if you’re still a little scared of the print, or a statement plaid coat if you’re full on mad for plaid!
Star of the Show – Let your plaid do the talking as the featured outfit piece against dark jeans, black or brown boots, or even a leather jacket.
Print Mixer – A print that pairs great with other patterns. Try stripes or polka dots in black and white for something safe, or a fun floral for a big splash.
Go Mad – Can’t get enough of this print? Double up or triple up with a plaid skirt and scarf combo, plaid scarf and shirt combo or all of the above if you want to triple dip!
