Mad for Plaid

4 years ago by

The concept of plaid for Fall is often likened to that of florals for spring: expected, passé, or as Miranda Priestly would say… groundbreaking (cue exaggerated eye roll and awkward silence). This season however, plaid is back in a big and bold way, and I am here with the help of our gorgeous friend Cyndle to make the case for plaid being the coolest trend of the fall.

Plaid is often times misunderstood. When thinking of plaid as it relates to fashion, best-case scenario is you’re picturing Cher’s iconic Clueless look; worst-case scenario you’re thinking of lumberjacks. But the plaid I’m making a case for isn’t the typical cozy flannel you might have in mind – rather it’s the revival of the classic 70s plaid. A little bit retro and a LOT bit chic, 70s plaid is making a comeback on the runways. With the combination of its muted earth tone palettes and the way it plays off of sumptuous fabrics, a piece of this plaid variety makes for the perfect fall look.

Now, while it’s true that Cyndle would look good in just about anything, don’t be intimidated – there is a piece of plaid out there for everyone! Whether you’re feeling bold with a statement coat, or you want to incorporate just a touch with a mini skirt, you cannot go wrong with this retro look.
