Let’s start with the most common for all of us, the plaid print. Plaid comes in many styles as well; for instance, you can choose a button down polo shirt in plaid print and wear it in so many different ways. Of course you can wear it as a top, and pair with denim jeans or shorts for a casual look. Or, you can pair it with a pretty skirt to make the plaid look extra feminine. Another way to wear it is to tie it around your waist for an edgy look. It’s such a 90’s trend but it has certainly come back. Next is to wear it as a layering, over a dainty dress or just a casual dress. It’s a great way to contrast semi-manly-looking print with feminine piece.

You can also wear houndstooth in so many ways. A houndstooth skirt for example is great for casual and office wear. Both prints are a very versatile print, that’s why they deserve to be called timeless prints.
