Pretty in Plaid

Marc by Marc JacobsDowntown Manhattan hipsters, and Los Feliz idie rockers, are all wearing a similar pattern this Fall…Plaid.  The streets of Silverlake are starting to look a bit more like Seattle circa 1991.  Fortunately, the plaid look is coming back with a stylish vengeance, rather than in a sloppy grunge style.  Plaid dresses are being paired with Jimmy Choo ankle boots, and plaid shirts are worn with black skinny jeans on both men and women.  This trend is available to people with all budgets.  Thrift stores are a great, and “green”, place to purchase plaid items.  Urban Outfitters has many chic plaid pieces that are fitted and stylish for under $100.  Alexander McQueen takes on plaid this season in a gorgeous red and black plaid dress that retails for over $5,000.  Whatever your budget may be, plaid is easily accessible, versatile, and the perfect pattern for you this Fall.
