Return of the Plaid
I still remember my first plaid skirt, back in middle school. As soon as I left the house I would roll the top and make sure that my baggy sweater would hide the tweaking I’d just done. In a way I was already playing with volume and proportions.
Then along came Cher, not the singer, the character from Clueless and suddenly plaid was so much more than a school girl uniform.
Although I’m not ready to revisit my school girl plaid skirt, it is a pattern that I’m happy to incorporate into my winter style. The best inspiration I’ve found thus far is the Scandinavian ladies photographed during Copenhagen fashion week. This Harpers Bazaar article has a great view of their street style
Practically ever other photo has some form of plaid, wether it be a classic Burberry pattern or a whimsical array of colors keep this on your radar for the year to come. And for those up for just a gentle touch of this fashion trend, my favourite look is the first one featured on this page. Causal chic plus on trend at its best.
