It isn’t just for Scotsmen and school girls anymore. Plaid is one of Fall’s hottest trends. If you think of plaid as something like whipped cream, you can understand the breadth of its appeal. A spoonful of plaid can add a punch to even the most basic of items, while a richly colored tartan suit can be the equivalent of a cream filled tiramisu. It all depends on your personal style and your stomach for dramatic flair.
