Editors Are Forecasting: Plaid
Posted on 29 September 2009
What do Catholic school girls, 80â€™s grunge bands, BRAVEHEART and Double D Ranchâ„¢ have in common?
Plaid.Be it large cross-hatched hunting plaids or preppy tartans, plaids are adding interest and color on the runway and on celebs. For fall Double D Ranchâ„¢ is showing plaids as part of our merchandising mix.Â Ours is a casual, retro plaid with the perfect scale.Â Â Itâ€™s large, but not overwhelming.Â The colors are perfect for fall: harvest browns, russets and an interesting injection of turquoise for poison.Â I always love browns and turquoise together.Â Â But what makes our 'Pawnee Plaid' stand out from everything else out there is the wonderful hand embroidery and fun mending stitches we added to junk-it-up a bit.

Helps keep it not sso sserious.The â€œPawnee Plaidâ€ group comes in several silhouettes: full broomskirt, a sexy ruffle front blouse and a lightweight bomber.Â Take your styling cues on the bomber from Lisa, our stylist: wear it over a long sleeve tee and jeans.Â Looks fresh and youthful.
The key to wearing plaids for this season, well for any season is: keep it minimal.Â Just remember Dipitty Doâ€™s advice: â€œa little dab will do yaâ€.
