Chic Trend: Mad for plaid

From Louis Vuitton’s plaid skirts and jackets to Christian Dior’s equestrian-inspired pencil skirts, plaid (unevenly spaced checks) made their presence felt on the Fall 2010-11 runway. Glimpses from their shows:

Though I’ve never owned a checkered garment, I think it’s time to go hunting for a non-wool, plaid-inspired skirt or shirt for my wardrobe. Maybe even a trouser. After all, plaid and checks are perfect for winter.

Are you wearing checks yet?
