If you belong to the famous Generation Z of the 90s, you will likely associate the yellow plaid skirt with the movie Clueless. The film’s lead actress made Plaid famous by wearing a matching skirt and jacket of a beautiful yellow color.
After that movie, plaid quickly became a statement piece of clothing for many girls. It’s mostly associated with punk and rock and roll. But then it disappeared. It went out of style and nobody wore it.
This year it came back through the big door. Plaid was everywhere, on skirts, blazers and dresses. Everyone loved it! And now I’m going to show you how you can create a somewhat retro and somewhat modern look with a yellow plaid skirt. Trust me; you will love it.
