Mad for plaid
In uncertain times it’s good to find comfort in tradition, and plaid is a classic fabric.
Although it has been around for centuries, plaid prints are breaking all the fashion rules this winter.
It’s time to think outside the box. Look for a plaid coat in subtle grays and teals rather than a bold red and black combination.
Neutral shades do have their place, so combine brown, tan and cream scarf with a jewel tone coat.
A black and white plaid skirt adds interest and texture to a bright colored top.
Plaid does not have to be conservative, so spice it up with color and attitude.
