Mad for Plaid

tartan plaid outfits

Lots of trends turn up on runways and in stores every season. I ignore many of them as fads. They need to be suited to my age and lifestyle. I also look for items and styles that have wearability and longevity. So, I was excited to see plaid turn up as a major trend for Fall 2019. I have always LOVED plaid! I guess it reflects my more classic style. Plaid isn’t just for stodgy old men and flannel shirt lovers.  Sport this classic pattern in everything from full suits, as shown above, to fun shoes.

Today, I am sharing some of my favorite plaids this season in a variety of items.
