There are 3 (count um) 3 whole days left of Summer and if you’re anything like me you’ve already assessed your closet for Fall. If you’re looking for a little sneak peak into some major fashion inspo let’s take a gander at plaid for the season ahead because it’s going to be BIG. Plaid was everywhere on the runways last spring and it’s no surprise that it returns with a vengeance. This isn’t your grandmother’s plaid worn simply and understated. It’s plaid with a twist mixing bold prints and colors to your ensemble to update your look.. Below are a few images of inspiration to give you a heads up on how “plaid can be had” this season.

Plaid is popping up everywhere. I seem to be noticing more and more plaid and wonder if perhaps the Style Gods have suddenly gone Mad for Plaid.

Pretty Plaid

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but plaid has been popping up everywhere lately. There are oodles of plaid patterns in fashion as of late and it’s not just on a kilt skirt. Far from it. Truth be told I think the late Alexander McQueen had something to do with making plaid popular. He took plaid up to a whole new level when he first designed plaid couture that was soooooo beautiful you couldn’t help but have a major penchant for plaid. Since that McQueen  Collection in 2006 plaid is printed on a bevy of designer items including shoes, skirts, evening wear (you heard me YES even gorgeous gowns) and of course jackets, skirts, shirts and outwear. Now before I get all giddy over all the fabulous plaid fashion I must share a few plaid rules.

The Plaid Rules

Plaid Rule #1.-First up-know your plaids and by that I mean there are numerous plaid options and it’s a good rule of thumb to only wear one plaid print at a time.

Plaid Rule #2-Remember  all plaids are not created equal. Larger plaids do NOT make you appear smaller in your rear view mirror. Like all prints… small sized plaids  make an area appear smaller and larger plaids make you appear well-use your best judgment and when in doubt do a double check in the mirror.

Plaid Rule #3-Plaid prints make a statement so keep accessories simple but that doesn’t mean you have to abort the notion of some beautiful bling.

Plaid Rule #4.-Pair plaid with leopard. Because let’s face it leopard is a neutral and you can pair it with anything. LOVE!

Plaid is big…really big this fall. For those of you who think plaid is synonymous for some type of casual lumberjack look you will be so surprised to see that plaid has gone major mainstream and uber fashionable.

Plaid has gone casual, to contemporary to COUTURE…..Yep-this pattern has definitely evolved to give us plenty of  plaid- i-tude!
