The fellas are embracing plaid too! Check out how Good Music artist Big Sean styled his very reasonable $188 plaid Supreme bomber jacket.

For those that are bold enough to go full on plaid, actress Ashley Madekwe also has you covered.

Style Tip: Plaid can seem too prim, so to edge it up a little add trendy pieces like a moto jacket, tall boots, leather and swipe on some dark lipstick. In other words the less put together the better. Keep away from tailoring and try unexpected shapes for a natural classic look for under $100 bucks.
