Plaid Perfect with Settle Subtle

Not just a passing fad, plaid (or tartan, as it is also called) is always cool. From royalty to new-age couturiers and high street labels, this Scottish fabric has been a favourite through the ages. Add popular bloggers, Siddhi and Varun, to the list of fans. The founders of SettleSubtle live and dress by a simple-but-classy fashion philosophy rings that just as true for plaid, whose classic chequered patterns are constantly reinvented in new style. With a self-proclaimed weakness for the heritage fabric, the blogger duo embraces the fabric’s new-age avatars from Max Fashion’s winter collection with their singular panache.

Co-founders of the popular fashion and travel blog, Settle Subtle, Siddhi and Varun have a penchant for effortlessly mixing classic with cool. The Mumbai-based influencers make a strong case for subtlety in their personal style and their plaid picks from Max Fashion’s winter collection prove their taste.


Plaid, also known as tartan, makes its way from the Scottish highlands to international runways this season. To celebrate the perennially chic trend, Varun opts for a grey-and-white hooded shirt to nail a light, layered look for winter. The monochrome shirt offsets the graphic tee and ripped jeans elevated with an eye-catching badge. He completes the road trip-ready look with rugged sneakers, a hat and sunnies.



Siddhi embraces winter in all its glory with a monochromatic plaid printed dress. Layering the look with a roomy jacket and scarf, she adds a bright pop to the look with a multi-hued bag. Finish the look with leggings and boots for a super chic #ootd to beat the chill.
