Editors are Forecasting: Plaid

by 1 August 24, 2012

. "Glad About Plaid" "Mad for Plaid" "Plaid Ain't Bad" "Clad in Plaid" "Plaid: Fashion's Launch Pad" .

Every trend report, article, and blog about fashion has coined a clever alliteration or rhyme about PLAID. However you want to rhyme it, plaid is a great wardrobe staple! . So instead of trying to outdo the above taglines, I'm just going to let our Editors are Forecasting board speak for itself!

.
A Little History of Plaid: Plaid is a Fall/Winter staple in fashion and I thought we'd take a look at it's origins all the way back to the 1700s in Scotland. Scottish weavers began utilizing dyes to create the bold plaid design on their garbs in the Middle Ages. Plaid is so central to the Scottish culture that the English regime prohibited the wearing of plaid after the Scottish rebellion of 1746. Many Americans can follow their blood line to Scots who were condemned to seven years colony labor for wearing plaid.
