Plaid has long been, and will long stay, a holiday wardrobe staple.

But there’s a fine line to walk when it comes to wearing the pattern—especially around this time of year—because it can start looking toofestive. So take a cue out of Karlie Kloss‘ style book and follow along as she teaches you an invaluable lesson on dressing for the season, without going overboard (starring her plaid Opening Ceremony coat).

Without further ado, here are the tips on doing holiday plaid, the cool-girl way.

THE STYLE TIPS

Tip #1: It’s about implementing that red, holiday plaid into your current wardrobe without making too many waves. Example: We often see Karlie in black skinnies, boots and turtlenecks, so the overall outfit (minus the coat) isn’t shockingly different from what we’re/she’s used to.

Tip #2: Don’t choose a plaid pattern that feels too busy. The less lines and less design elements make for a more classic and timeless look.

Tip #3: Because the pattern is so bold, the silhouette of your coat, jacket or poncho should have a clear structure.

Also try to match up the LOOK with amazing diamond earnings and bracelets.
