We asked: Is Plaid In or Out?
You said: Plaid is a mixed bag. The breakdown? 40% are pro-Plaid, and 38% are anti-Plaid. The remaining 22% believe the trend is already on the way out.
Omiru’s take: Plaid has that old school All American appeal–think of woodsy summers at camp between years at prep school in New Hampshire. It’s one of those classic prints (where would Burberry be without plaid?) that’s always going to be around. This season, however, plaid’s having a party, spreading beyond the prep school crowd. While some like the distinctive print, some like it not. We’d chalk up it’s "In" status to it’s classic roots. But those who crashed the plaid party this season have realized that the A-listers have moved on. Party over.
Next Question: We observed an anti-fur demonstration outside Neiman Marcus after yesterday’s Elevation Salon AIDS Walk fundraiser. Tell us, what do you think about fur? Is it In, or is
it Out? Cast your vote on
