What to Buy Fall 2007: Falling for Plaid

What: Mad plaid on the runway for fall, updated with modern colors and fabrics.

What the Fashion heads say: Style.com: “….the patterned cloth looked surprisingly twenty-first century, thanks in part to electric-bright color combinations…”

The Lowdown: Did plaid ever really go away? It feels a bit like a flashback to the fall previews of ’06, where plaid was definitely a big hit on the runways.  The new plaid for fall 2007 has been updated a bit, but shiny dark plaid jumpers (like this one from Alberta Ferretti) are never going to find their way into most closets. However a dash of plaid is always fun – in the form of a sassy patterned flat, like this one.
