Checkmate.

Plaids. Unless you are living under a rock you have most likely noticed that plaids are everywhere. Everyone from Jason Wu to Forever 21 is sporting the checks of the season. I can just imagine the offices of Ralph Lauren, Burberry, and Brooks Brothers whispering "I told you so" while cranking out variations that they have been doing for years.


One of the most noticeable types this season is actually the buffalo check. This could be due to the resurgence in the old war horse manufactures like Pendleton, Woolrich, and the like. While this red and black fabric (yes it does not always have to be red and black... it just happens to be the most recognizable form of it) is enjoying the limelight, I caution you from picking up every piece that catches your eye. I can easily see this distinct print becoming a "is" that is relegated to a "was" by the season end. However, plaids in general, I think, are a good investment... they remind me of the spring ginghams but for fall. No matter how crazy fashion gets, it often comes back to the classic pieces and "plaid" is totally in the folds of that staple love blanket. When shopping around I encourage you to find pieces that fit your body... and then that flatter your skin tone. Newsflash... bright, bold checks may not look as amazing on you as they do on the 21 year old model you see wearing it.


Final verdict: keep your eyes out for pieces that may be made out of the plaid fabric but remember that you aren't limited to just a button-down shirt.
