Off the Grid: Chic Check Picks for Under $80

Fall is generally about cozy sweaters, nubby tweeds and plenty of pumpkin spice, but this season, one of the biggest trends to hit stores is a clean new take on traditional plaid. Instead of the usual jewel tones and bold colors, designers have pared down the pattern to its most basic and are offering up a minimal, windowpane plaid that’s in line with this season’s minimalism trend. You’ll find plenty of options from high-end designers such as Stella McCartney and even boho brand Chloé, but you’ll also find it at more affordable prices on everything from tops and skirts to full-on dresses. It’s a chic way to give any outfit a big dose graphic impact, and because the new plaid is simple — especially when done in black and white — it lets everything you add really shine. So go ahead and grab your most vibrantly hued shoes and bags: it’s time for them to have a little piece of the spotlight, too.
