Plaid is one of those patterns that never truly goes away (Remember the houndstooth years of the early aughts? Whew.) There's the rich history of Scottish tartans that trickles all the way down to Cher's iconic yellow outfit in "Clueless." The schoolgirl-classic pleated numbers. The favorite button-up flannels of both lesbians and lumberjacks. To put it bluntly, plaid has never and will never go anywhere.
Recently, though, it seems the checkered fabric is having a resurgence, mostly found on skirts, from micro-minis to ankle-sweeping lengths in a wealth of different fabrics. French tuck a graphic T-shirt into the waistband or go with a white, collared shirt for a more upscale look. The magic of these babies is that they pretty much go with anything. They're also a great option for transitional dressing (it's almost leather jacket weather!) as it finally, mercifully, gets colder.
