Plaid ended up being a pretty popular print in 2013. And it wasn't done in the traditional preppy, Catholic schoolgirl way, nor was it nostalgic '90s grunge—this year's tartan trend turned out to be perfectly polished, and of course, très, très chic.

The one look that seemed to make its way into every trendsetter's closet? Zara's Checked Dress with Zips, worn by celebrities (like Maria Menounous and Olivia Palermo), personal style bloggers, and real girls alike.

We're guessing it's because this little navy number is about as versatile as they come. As proven in the photos above, this printed frock (with a funky zippered waist) looks subtly sexy when styled up with thigh-high boots, and simply sophisticated when worn with plain black pumps.

Missed out on it the first go round? The stylish checkered tunic just went on sale at Zara for $99.99. If you're mad about plaid, click here to scoop one up before it's gone for good.
