Another huge fall trend this year is tartan, otherwise known as plaid. It can be paired with leather to achieve that edgy look that has been all over the runway. Or, you can create a softer look by wearing a plaid dress with tights or wearing a plaid button down with jeans. Versatility is one of the great things about this print; you can only own one plaid shirt, but depending on what you pair it with, it can create completely different looks. But as always, the problem with shopping is that you have to spend money. But you don’t have to spend a lot! And, if you go to Studentrate, you can get a discount on your favorite brands and fashions

All of these pieces shown above can be found for less than $50. And like I said earlier, you need only one plaid shirt to give yourself many outfit options, which means that you won’t have to break the bank. I’m also loving the pants. Pair them with a white t-shirt and a biker jacket and you look effortlessly cool. While it may seem a little daunting at first, plaid is a really fun pattern to play around with in terms of your outfits, and you can try mix-and-matching it with tons of different things already in your closet. Indulge in this fall staple pattern without making a dent in your bank account.
