Mad For Plaid

Tartan is on trend this fall.  Designers ranging from Max Mara to Prada are showing the striped pattern that generally consists of horizontal and vertical banded lines in contrasting colors. To avoid looking like a member of a Scottish pipe band, we suggest wearing just one piece at a time. Here are ways to incorporate plaid this season. 

Plad: Prada

Prada gets it right with these bags and shoes. Again, not to be worn together, but either can add a punch of color and plaid to a more muted toned outfit. Prada, 180 NE 40th Street, (305) 438- 2280.

Plad: Max Mara

Max Mara’s pink plaid pieces are a fun twist on the traditional red pattern. Choose from a knee-length, flared wool bouclé skirt or V-neck knit dress in mohair wool jacquard, both of which can be worn with boots, heels or flats depending on the outing. Max Mara, 106 NE 39th Street, Suite 103, (305) 770-6200.

Plad: Marni

Another fun take on tradition, Marni’s pink, green and yellow pattern available in a jacket and skirt. These pieces pass the plaid test and can be worn together, just keep accessories and shoes to a single color. Marni, 3930 NE 2nd Avenue, Suite 100, (305) 764-3357.

Plad: Burberry

What would a plaid trend story be without Burberry? Dating back to the 1800s when Brit, Thomas Burberry, first founded the brand, the plaid pattern has become its most iconic pattern. From scarves and sweaters to dresses and accessories, you can find the print in virtually any item.  Burberry, 112 NE 39th Street, Suite 101, (305) 423-0078.
