(I'm feeling a bit under the weather, so here. Take this mildly-diplomatic rant about plaid. Take it.)

Don’t get me wrong. Plaid is one of the most versatile prints out there. Combining other clothes & accessories with plaid is as easy as one-two-three, and with plaid as the current trend among college students, it’s a basic that can make any girl (or guy) look fashionable.
That said, so many people, so many people, execute the so-called trend poorly. And because plaid is worn by so many, I fear the trend is going to crash and die. Hard. It’ll become overrated to the majority of the population, like Avril Lavigne or Kanye West.
Personally, I’d like to avoid looking like a lumberjack. I'll spare you the step-by-step user manual on wearing plaid, because you people are fashionable and probably know more on the subject than I do. Just, please use sparingly and in your best judgment.
By the way. Where did the stereotype of mixing plaid and hipster come about?


  1. WOW! I luv this FAB PLAID POST it's solely COOL!:)

  2. I could not agree with you more! Especially with the trend not being treated with care.
