Stashing the sash fashion: Miss Plantsville’s Outstanding Teen Taylor Plourd


When you see them compete for a crown, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, business attire, and swimsuits are the uniforms of necessity. But what do titleholders wear when the sash and crown are stashed away.

Meet Taylor Plourd, Miss Plantsville’s Outstanding Teen of the Miss America Organization.

“I would say my fashion sense for going out in public is trendy yet comfortable. I love experimenting and playing around with different pieces, according to the season, my mood and personality.

“When I am home, you can find me wearing a huge hoodie, yoga pants and fuzzy socks.  You can never go wrong with fuzzy socks.”
