Trendscape: Mad for Plaid

August 22nd, 2006

Think back to the early 90’s: upon hearing the word "plaid," one would envision Nirvana’s frontman Kurt Cobain rocking out on his guitar, clad in his wrinkled plaid flannel button-down shirt. Flashback to now - plaid has undergone a major transformation and screams ruggedly elegant. Choose from one of our plaid picks, and you’ll be right on trend for fall. Nappy hair and tractor not required.

    I think I could actually like the new plaid. Much more elegant than the early 90s version of the trend, like you said.

    I agree. It’s so much more likeable now because it’s polished and more refined than the 90’s era.

    They are quite fabulous and unique. I think it takes great confidence to pull them off!

    well i’d certainly wear them! i hope something like that turns up in New Zealand – i love this site but unfortunately can’t get my hands on anything that’s featured! But it’s great for inspiration :)

    Oh, I’m really sorry about that. But I’m sure you can find a knock-off in New Zealand. I hope you do. You just have to do some searching.
