Trend Alert: Mad for Plaid
November 9, 2006
There’s just something about plaid that evokes the holiday spirit in even the scroogiest amongst us. It helps, that plaid is like, so totally in right now. But take heed, ye followers of all things trendy, donâ€™t overdo it. Plaid is a busy fabric, ready to clash with almost anything, so keep it simple, and pair it with basics. Whatever your comfort level, there’s a piece of plaid for you.
If you woke up on the conservative side of the bed this morning, try this headband at J.Crew ($14.50) for just a pop of non-confrontational color. The skinnier the sweeter, I think.
Feeling a little empowered this morning? Maybe you just got back from an all-women’s “Find Your Inner Goddess” retreat. Release your inner tartan with Bell by Alicia Bell Ruffle Cuff Plaid Shirt @ Nordstrom.com($152).
If you find yourself suddenly siezed by the sturdy lumberjack spirit trapped within, try this blue plaid minidress by What Goes Around Comes Around at Shopbop.com ($330).
