Top 5 for Fall 2009: Plaid

Plaid’s back for fall. For better or worse, the pattern has become a fashion constant, so wear it – just wear it wisely. Please note: petite fashionistas should avoid wearing the print from head to toe and focus more on embellishing outfits with plaid accents (jackets, hats, belts, handbags) so that the design doesn’t swallow them whole.
