Last week, my husband met me for lunch and as we sat down, we realized we were surrounded by high school students. It was the first week of school, so I guess they all felt they needed to leave campus for lunch. You know, because it’s cool. Oddly enough, my husband asked me about their clothing. He noticed that almost all of them had plaid flannel shirts, despite the fact that it was 90 degrees outside!
Just when you thought it was gone for good, the plaid clothing trend is back. Remember those plaid flannel shirts of the 1990s? But this time around, the look isn’t what I would call “grudge.” Thank goodness for that! This whole plaid clothing trend did get me thinking though. What can we expect for the upcoming Autumn season and will clothing be the only area of fashion on board with this trend? Jennifer recently wrote about the Herschel Supply Co Plaid Settlement Daypack Backpack, so my guess is no. I think handbags are being sucked into this trend as well. Take a look!
Kate Spade Cameron Street Plaid Maisie Satchel. $328
Kate Spade is not known for plaid prints, but the black and cream checkers look pretty good on this satchel.
Tory Burch Kira Tweed Crossbody Bag. $395
Plaid and tweed just seem to go hand-in-hand on this little crossbody bag. This piece is definitely ready for fall!
