We love plaid shirts–if you love the style, too, consider continuing the trend into spring with a few pieces perfect for transitional weather. You can wear them lots of ways. That’s how you know they’re worth the money.

Roxy does a great transitional plaid dress ($19) that works in winter with a pair of tights and booties, and is equally cute for spring with ballet flats.

The basic wardrobe addition: A peppy LOFT  plaid scarf ($34) takes a basic dress or cardigan to the next level.

This Splendid plaid dress ($139) in pastel colors lets the plaid be a little more feminine–without compromising its roots, which are casual and cool.

The American Eagle plaid fedora ($19.95) makes a plain pair of jeans that flatter your shape and a button-down shirt seem instantly dressed up.

Hurley plaid halter top ($19.99) and bikini bottoms ($42) are different than the standard bikini–why not switch things up on your next vacation?
