Styled by Marina - 90s Grunge Fashion : How to Style Plaid Dresses #OOTD
Plaid, A classic fashion element, a textile pattern that originated in Scotland as the symbolic national dress. It certainly seems like we have adopted plaid into our wardrobes since...as long as we could remember. Chances are you can spot people wearing plaid or tartan skirts and flannel shirts here and there. It's undoubtedly one of the most popular fashion patterns nowadays. With the 90s grunge fashion making a huge comeback in the past few years, I am feeling inspired to write a quick blog post on how I would style plaid / Tartan dresses.

1. Black Embroidered Satin Blouse - QUEENSHOP
2. Olive Green Plaid Maxi Dress - Above Life
3.Black Sparkly Trainers - BERSHKA
Now I am certainly not one of those super slender girls with model standard golden body ratio, lol. I mean we all have insecurities when it comes to our bodies. It's nothing to be ashamed of and I think we should proudly own what we have and love every inch of our skin. But loving our body and learning how to dress are two different topics. One thing I've come to master when I'm putting together an outfit for myself is to actually getting to know my body. Say if you are particularly insecure about your thighs, it's perfectly fine! Instead of blindly putting on whatever they advertise on a style magazine, you can use certain fashion items to compliment your body.
Instead of going for those super tight and fitted dresses, try to utilize oversized fashion items to create an edgier and retro style, at the same time it covers up any body parts that you may not feel comfortable showing the world, which is totally okay. I have found out that a lot of the girls steer clear of wearing oversized outfits in fear of making themselves look bigger. While wearing oversized fashion pieces does have a risk of accidentally looking like a balloon. The ultimate trick is to show where you are comfortable showing. If you decide to wear something looser or oversized, be sure to show a little ankle or wrist, add a belt to accentuate your waist. You might be surprised to find out just how good you look in a pair of palazzo pants or your dad's vintage baggy sweater.
