If you're anything like me, you probably spend the entire fall and winter with a plaid shirt on your person tied around your waist, thrown over your shoulders, or worn underneath your favorite denim jacket. So why give up plaids for spring?

Sure a good tartan or navy plaid is a very wintery look, but there are plenty of bright takes on the print that are 100-percent ready for a springtime picnic or bike ride through the park. (Don't worry, we're not talking about country club madras!) Just take some inspiration from Kate Bosworth's icy blue dress and check out the coolest spring plaids in the slideshow.
