Plaid is the New Black
Trends come and go every season, but plaid remains the new black, year-round.
An extremely versatile pattern, plaid can be dressed up or down. Grab that crisp, fitted white plaid shirt and team it with black cigarette pants for the board meeting on Monday morning. Paint the town red on Friday night with that sweet madras plaid shirt on your back!
If I could only wear one pattern forever, I would choose plaid for sure. I build my plaid wardrobe palette around colours that work for me. From icy hues to dark tones, there’s a gorgeous plaid for everyone. Here on our sunny little island (read: city of sweltering heat), comfortable cotton plaid shirts are definite closet staples. We wear our plaid throughout the year. Just look at what’s in my closet!
While Googling plaid sometime in May, I stumbled upon Plaidurday and instantly pledged to join in the inaugural worldwide celebration of plaid on Friday, 7 October 2011. On Plaidurday, everyone will wear plaid – plaid shirts, plaid bags, plaid headbands, plaid nails – I even have a plaid dialer on my phone! There are plaid windows in my office lobby, and when sunlight filters through the glass, plaid shadows adorn the marble floor. Plaid is everywhere.
Whether it’s tartan, buffalo, madras, or glen, break out your plaid today! Wear it every day, or as often as you can. Embrace plaid!
Finally, here’s wishing everybody a Happy Plaidurday!
