Olivia Culpo Out and About in LA

Olivia Culpo

The 23-year-old beauty queen and Miss USA 2012 winner is a radiant sight in her black and red buffalo plaid duffle coat. If you’re a fan of casual simplicity and unsure about sporting a brilliant plaid topper, channel your inner Olivia Culpo in a pair of distressed, faded skinny jeans and thigh-high black leather boots. Add a simple black tee, black scarf and quirky oversized eyeglasses to complete your Saturday style.

Carly Rae Jepsen

We’re coveting the 30-year-old Run Away With Me singer’s grunge inspired, edgy approach to the plaid trend. Jepsen pairs her oversized plaid blazer with a flirty black frock and sheer fishnet stockings. Meanwhile, the Canadian songstress’ black leather lace-up booties and chain strap purse prove that understated accessories can truly bring a striking touch to plaid prints.

Odeya Rush

 For a more sophisticated take on plaid outerwear, follow the chic example set by the 18-year-old Goosebumps actress. Rush effortlessly layers a ladylike red and white plaid coat over a shiny red textured skirt and a girlish navy blouse. The dark blue collar on her coat flatters her top, while the brilliant scarlet shade of the skirt adds a striking finishing touch.
