Plaid Isn’t Just for School Girls

Plaid Isn’t Just for School Girls

If you don’t already have a plaid piece in your closet, it is time to invest. Houndstooth, tartan, and checkered patterns have made a splash all over the runway. This classic pattern has been done in an updated version that gives it a more modern feel. If you have a prim and proper school uniform come to mind when you think of plaid, have no fear! Plaid has taken a turn in the grunge direction. Pairing leather accents and fur with plaid makes for an edgier look.
