What’s Trending: Plaid

The world’s mad for plaid. A straight-forward print, classic and chic at the same time, plaid is the perfect counterpart to the floral print craze. It’s preppy, it’s pulled together, and when shaped into mod silhouettes, it’s oh-so-now. We all need our traditional plaid pieces (utility bag, scarf, shoe lining), but push the envelope with a plaid maxi skirt, a checkerboard shift, or a silky cami in a suprising argyle-inspired plaid.
