Bored of plaid shirts and skirts? Welcome plaid pants and give your tartan-inspired wardrobe a much needed reboot.
Plaid shirts, skirts and dresses have all been raved about as they make a comeback into the wardrobe of today’s fashion-savvy. Channeling the 90s style as fueled by the grunge trend, plaid has been modernized and streamlined to appeal to the masses of chic dressers.
Whether you are still mad for plaid or have just had about enough of the sudden influx of the tartan style persuasion, there is no denying of the sheer diversity that the classic motif has inspired in the clothing department. It is one of those unisex patterns that is embraced by both genders and fashion designers are having a ball with it for their Fall/Winter 2014 collections.
One thing that is true, plaid flannels are just everywhere these days that their innovative use as a waist accessory of sort on edgy grungy ensembles have taken on a fashion meme of its own. I’m ready for a different take to the plaid trend and this time, it involves pants.
Tartan pants don’t seem to get much spotlight but if you fancy a fresh and updated way to wearing plaid, then find pants of any silhouette that carry the print and wear it fabulously.
