Chunky sweaters, cozy blankets, and pumpkin spice lattes—OH MY!
This slightly colder weather is quickly transforming my hot girl summer closet into a basic b*tch oasis. Fall is full of every girls' favorite cable-knit pullovers, boots, and teddy bear coats, but allow me to introduce these 15 pairs of plaid pants, a trend that has been all over the runway and is far from basic. It will spice up your wardrobe (minus the pumpkin).
So give your dark wash denim a break. I've searched the internet and window shopped 'til I dropped, and found the 15 best pairs of glen plaid pants. Glen plaid, which combines small and large checks, usually comes in more neutral colors—PERFECT for a versatile wardrobe staple. Not sure plaid is for you? Let me break it down: Paired with a chunky pullover and Stan Smiths, you have your effortless everyday look, rock a matching blazer and a strappy sandals for the chicest look around the office, or, if you’re looking for a little edge, pair with platform boots and a moto jacket.
Shop my top picks below, including Chloé cargo trousers, Cédric Charlier tapered leg pants (my personal favorite), and—if you dare to be different—even premature holiday-inspired Jean Paul Gaultier trousers that can be worn through December 25.
