Perfect Plaids

Tantalizing tartans for… Spring? You read correctly, darlings: these tantalizing tartans are straight off the SS ’10 runways! Another trend goes yearlong, it seems. And CC couldn’t be more pleased with these plaids!

Suusje Q. said...

I love plaids, but I think it's difficult to wear it in a fashion way. People do look very preppy or alternative sometimes..

Liking the plaids. Recently received a red tartan scarf fresh from wee bonnie Scotland. Also been working a red plaid purse w/big leather & chain handles.

I love plaid with mixed patterns like at Anna Sui :)

Love the idea of tartan for spring.

Diana said...

I'm a big fan of plaid, so I'm looking forward to what spring will bring.

Cammila said...

What a surprise: the adorably costumey blue plaid number from Anna Sui is the one that makes me feel like I NEED to wear this stuff, right this minute! I think she embeds subliminal messages in her clothes.

Grace said...

I love plaid, especially madras for spring!

Hanako66 said...

yes, i love plaid!!!

Trixy said...

I love casual plaid with a pair of great denim shorts and chic sunglasses. Like Daisy Duke, but modern and classy. Love it!

Panty Buns said...

It looks like Lady Gaga's influence is being felt on runways around the world. The fairly formal plaid no-pants suit by Margaret Howel (nym) looks great. Thank you Lady Gaga!
