Tartan is and always will be a sartorial staple. Here are ways in which celebrities sported the look.

SRK as Raj’s most pivotal scenes and turnarounds happened when he was decked up in plaid. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja wore an iconic plaid mini suit in Aisha. Deepika Padukone has worn it as a dress and of course, suits are rife on all red carpets. So here’s a quick lesson on how your favourite celebrities are styling plaid today.
