Mad for plaid

IMG_5598

Unless you’re living under a rock you’ll know that plaid is everywhere this Fall, in fact probably for a few Fall seasons.  Forget the stiff, itchy  and stodgy wool pleated skirts but think soft and cozy blanket scarves, cardigans and shawls, cozy flannel button downs and who could forget cozy pyjama pants.  I don’t profess to be an expert, I don’t have an ounce of Scottish blood in me but I do know they are steeped in history and I find it quite intriguing to learn about their history. I also love the colours and cozy styles that I’m so drawn to.

1. Buffalo Plaid/check-there are various stories about its history including that those who wore it hunted buffalo, could be? I also found this more plausible story

All I know is that I’ve become a little obsessed with buffalo plaid. Especially it’s flexibility in being mixed with other patterns such as leopard prints.

I also love how buffalo plaid looks great with faux fur and can be dressed up with sparkly statement necklaces and high boots

2. Nova Check. This recognizable plaid is often associated with the luxury brand Burberry and is protected by copyright. I can’t say I own a lot of the “real deal” but I am drawn to its elegant sophistication. The tan colourway is my favourite but it does come in other colours

3. Gingham I like to call to call this the “summer plaid” as it’s often associated with picnics and summer dresses.

Gingham was huge this summer and I happily jumped on the bandwagon

IMG_5604IMG_5608IMG_5607IMG_5605I know I’ve only touched on the many different plaids that come in many colours and designs. I think it’s really interesting and next time I pick up yet another plaid item I’ll be sure to check(pardon the pun😂) what pattern it is!

Check mate! 😂😂😂😂
