Favorite Fashion Look: Plaid

Plaid shirt and pants from Nordstrom

Traditionally used for kilts, schoolgirl skirts, and wide-leg ‘70s bellbottoms plaid is a print that either can enthrall the wearer and viewer overwhelm them. If worn head-to-toe it can be a bit much, but if broken up with a dynamic striped Breton or solid color tee it can wow even the most apathetic chicster.

I credit André Leon Talley for turning me onto it when I was truly done with the trend. Interviewed on a fashion TV program one Saturday morning, in a gloriously wild room literally dripping in red plaid, he sermonized about the wonders of the design so fervently, I was sold, and have loved it ever since.

Forever timeless and vibrant it’ll always be the royalty of fabrics.

Definition of plaid: A fabric with stripes and bars of various colors and bars that cross at right angles.
