I love Plaid it is the perfect Fall/ winter staple. Love the Burberry and the plaid jacket from lulus

The Seeker said...

I think plaid is one of the prints that I'm most comfortable with and we can get different styles with it.

So cool, great picks, my dear.

Erika said...

Due to the fact that I have yet to find any plaid that truly suits me, I'm loving DSquared2's use of tartan - just a pop about the collar via the scarf. Though I must admit, I wouldn't mind calling that DKNY bit or PPQ piece my own! :)

Keith said...

These are great. I love plaid. I definitely will be wearing some this fall/winter. I had a pair of plaid shorts I wore a lot this summer.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

This is such a great look. I love plaid.

I should have kept all of my shirts from my early-90s grunge phase :-)!!

Savvy Gal said...

I am beginning to see mor merits for plaids. yah...

Averill said...

I adore plaid, but maybe it's because I still have a soft spot for 90s grunge.
