Plaid is one of my favorite patterns because I find it to be more sophisticated than checks. So you can imagine my joy when I realized that this pattern now extends as a fall must-have trend for children.
This post focused on some of the coveted plaid pieces from Janie and Jack, My Theresa, Rue La La, and other online boutiques, for kid and baby girls. But that doesn´t mean boys are excluded. My next blog post is going to be all about the plaids for boys.
From dresses to skirts and capes, your little girl can wear the plaid trend with style. So let´s dive in.

A Dark Plaid Dress
When you see plaid dresses for girls, you may think of school uniforms. I mean, remember those green or blue plaid dresses that the girls who went to catholic schools wore?
Well, if you want to avoid the school uniform look for your little girl, you can opt for this Bradbury Red Plaid dress from Jannie and Jack. It has velvet details and is made from soft stretch cotton which is more comfortable to wear than those crispy plaid skirts for school uniforms. Additionally, it comes with a bloomer for protection and to make the skirt voluminous.
These are some of the cute designers plaid dresses that I am loving. I love how unique these dresses look and I think it´s an awesome leveled up interpretation of plaid.
A Plaid Collar top
When it comes to plaid tops, there are many ways to do it. Personally, I`m not a fan of plaid tops. I love wearing plaid skirts, even plaid dresses, but some reasons I struggle to wear plaid tops. Well, that´s just me.
However, should I have a daughter, I think I would suggest to her tops that only have plaid accents such as plaid collars or plaid ruffles. But of course it´s totally up to her. If she loves to wear a plaid top with plaid everything, why not?
From my experience, around the age 3.5 years they start to develop a strong opinion on what they want to wear. At least that´s how it is with my little boy. If I pick clothes that he doesn´t like, he would refuse to wear it.
More than just the plaid pattern, the style of the top and the colors of the plaid play huge roles in how fabulous the top would look.
A Plaid Cape
When it comes to cute outerlayers for fall, a plaid cape is a must-have. Not only for little girls but for women too. It can easily level up a a simple look.
A Red Plaid Dress
The holidays are soon approaching so if you´re looking for holiday dresses for your daughters that are multi-functional and can easily be worn after the holidays, then you should really consider these red plaid dresses.
A sleveless red plaid dress can easily be layered under with a black pullover, while a short-sleeved dress can be layered over with a cardigan.
A Plaid Pair of Trousers
I remember when I was a young lady how much I loved patterned trousers. Literally. I think they´re just fun to wear, especially when worn with a simple white top.
From stretchy jeggings to trousers with pockets, choosing a right red plaid pants for your little girl is as easy as abc.
A Plaid Skirt
And now the plaid mini skirts! Dang, until now I`m still looking for my perfect plaid mini skirt. I don´t know why it´s so elusive to me.
How I wished these beautiful skirts are also available in my size. I will definitely get the Polo Ralph and the DSQUARED2. They look so cute when layered with black leggings and black or dark brown leather knee-high boots – whether the wear is a little girl, a big girl, or a grownup woman. I guess deep down we´re all little girls, no?
If dark or bright plaid prints are too much, you can also opt for light plaids instead such as this Jet Ivory Plaid Dress which looks as soft das a feather and with gorgeous pleats. It has an equestrian look which style is always welcome in fall.
Of course new born can wear plaid this season too. Here´s a really cute red plaid matching set for babies featuring a dress and a bloomer.
Another cute plaid item for babies is this bradbury red plaid jumper. It can be layered with a white knit sweater and red or black tights.
So these my picks for this season plaid trend for newborns, little and big kid girls. Plaid is always a staple for fall, so any worries that these pieces will quicky go out of trend is out of the picture. Sure your little girl may quickly outgrow these plaid pieces, but you can either give them as hand-me-down to their younger sister, to friends, or sell them and get some of your money back.
Let me know what you think of the plaid trend for kids.
