Anything but Matronly: the Fall 08 Plaid Trend
It doesn’t have to be Burberry, but plaid is reigning as a popular fall 2008 trend. Elle magazine even names it as one of the top ten key trends for now. I have been seeing a certain Marc by Marc Jacobs Plaid top in nearly all of the big department stores. It’s a bit too boxy for my tastes.
Someone once told me that plaid pants were always (always, always!) the wrong choice. Stylish though she was, she was from L.A. So maybe she just didn’t get our East Coast style. I can admit I don’t always get (read: like) West Coast style. I am in love and ready to propose marriage with all of the emerging plaid trousers/pants around, especially these by Escada. Pockets, pleats – it has everything I thought I didn’t like in pants, but I love it. Simpler plaid pants by Alfani are an affordable and smart choice.
