If you love keeping up the latest styles and trends, you may have already heard all the buzz around plaid already. Of course, this pattern has long been a staple in the fashion world (as if we could forget the impact of Clueless on our perception of bright yellow plaid). But lately, it seems like plaid is getting another reboot, with even celebs like Shay Mitchell, who recently released a new BÉIS Plaid Collection, hopping on the trend bandwagon.

For those of us who want to also board this plaid fashion train but are stuck totally buggin’ in front of our closet, all hope isn’t lost just yet. We here at E! Insider Shop recently had the chance to speak with Amazon influencers Vivian Rodriguez, Darcy McQueeny, Nelly Toledo, Nita Danielle, Kaeli Mae, and Kate Bannister, and we had one question for them: “What’s the best way to wear plaid this season?” Being the fashionistas they are, each of them gave a unique, helpful answer that had us ready to load our shopping carts. It was like asking your cool older sister for fashion advice, and then raiding her closet afterward to find the perfect outfit (except in this case, the closet is Amazon).

Based on the answers and advice that each influencer gave us, we rounded up the best picks from Amazon that we think most closely match their visions. So get your pink fuzzy pen and notepad ready, because fashion class is in session!

Vivian Rodriguez: “Go with colors that are already in your wardrobe pallet. I’m going to be going with some softer colors, like pinks and greys so it’s not a harsh transition and going with neutral tones.”

The fabric has some stretch and adjustable spaghetti straps, so you can wear it comfortably on its own or layer it with a long-sleeve shirt underneath for a cozier vibe.

Darcy McQueeny: “Plaid is like a big pattern for me. I’m a little more simple when it comes to clothing, but if I were to wear plaid, I would say, like the big scarves that you wear.”
