Plaid and Leather: Why We Love This Look

Shirts, jackets, skirts, pants… simply, the Plaid + Leather look is all the rage. I think it’s the combination of “bad boy/girl” meets “Sweet Country” – or all those images of attractive men next to kittens – basically, it’s the whole yin-and-yang thing. No matter how you mesh it, it’s totally hot. Here are our favorite plaid and leather finds!

Here’s How to Put Together a Killer Plaid and Leather Look
