Style tip?  Plaid continues its reign as fashion’s favorite fabric for Fall 2010.  While the plaid shirt is an easy way to snag this trend, we encourage you to go a bit further with this fabric.  We love the look of a plaid dress, either in strapless or sleeved forms.  Or, if you dare, try the plaid pants, paired with a top in like colors.  What to wear with plaid?  Juxtapose this classic fabric against something with a bit more edge - be it a leather jacket, moto boots, or a pair of killer sunglasses.

What do you think?  How would you wear plaid?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    man I was fashioning plaid back in the early 90s! Had plaid baggy shorts… people said I had poor taste in fashion, I guess I was just way ahead of its time.

    Yup, this is a 90’s thing. They have to go down the list of references to the past and just do what’s next, it’s a new fashion law. (We already got the ripped jeans and chambray shirts, so now it’s time for plaid.)

    A lot of the time? Plaid is still poor taste. But it’s On The List!

    Donna Karan you are my contemporary fashion hero. Always comes up with the best looking, wearable stuff. The Marc Jacobs is cute but it’s too… circa 2000 San Francisco goth.

    Sad…yes I wore plaid in the 90’s.
    Not planning to wear it again any time soon or ever.

    Plaid was a ’90s thing, but it was also an ’80s and ’70s thing. Bottom line: plaid never really goes out.
