Simply Be Grid Check Coat

Simply Be Grid Check Jacket, $120

Plaid is having a major moment right now.  It first showed up as a trend last fall, but has had staying power beyond what anyone expected, and is now omnipresent.  Its the star of street style snaps; it was everywhere on the AW14 runways; and even Beyonce is a fan.  There are pieces for every style and aesthetic, from 90’s grunge revival to chic corporate workwear.  If you are unsure how to style a piece, ask me in the comments –  I love to help!

Whether you like traditional tartans, monochrome checks, or colorful plaids, I’ve rounded up some of the best plus size picks from the trend.  Which one is your favorite?
