Mad for Plaid

dress (c/o) // shoes (similar) // clutch 

If there's one thing that says happy holidays, it's plaid everything. Plaid shoes, plaid table linens, plaid tops, and plaid dresses. It's a celebration of a classic pattern, also known as tartan, and I kind of love it. 

I remember being in Edinburgh and seeing tartan in shops as far as the eye could see. Even though I was in the Scottish town in the dead of summer, the pattern immediately evoked warmth and comfort - just like plaid still does for me today. Over the years, I've enjoyed seeing plaid take on different personas: in the 90s it was the quintessential grunge pattern while in the past decade, it's been all about blanket scarves. Now, it's sneaking into interiors as wallpaper and luxe fabrics. Gorgeous!

This plaid wrap dress had me at hello. I knew it would be perfect for holiday soirees and fit right in with the rest of my plaid collection. As you wrap-up holiday parties this week (say it isn't so!), pull out your plaid and rock it with festive pride.
