When you think of plaid, images of the girls from Clueless, ‘90s rock stars, or school uniform skirts may come to mind. Plaid is another pattern that is classic and has been a favorite throughout recent history. It can be worn year round, but is especially popular in the winter.
The overlapping horizontal and vertical stripes create a striking design and the seemingly endless color combinations that can be used make the design possibilities nearly infinite. The size of the stripes adds another element to the pattern. Larger plaids create a bolder look while smaller ones have a daintier feel. Colorwise, darker shades are popular in the winter, especially during the holiday season, so opt for a plaid that uses rich reds, dark blues, and/or brilliant greens.
A plaid dress would look darling on your little girl. She’ll delight friends and family in such a classic ensemble. The presence of several colors makes styling a breeze, just pair it with solid color accessories that pick up on the various shades in the dress. Plaid can also be worn day or night. A matte fabric is ideal for running around the house on a snow day, whereas a shimmery fabric makes for a stunning party dress.
