Mad for Plaid

As a proud plaid conisseur, I am somewhat confused when I hear that plaid is "back" in style this season. Where did plaid go in the last few years? I remember more than a few celeb photos featuring cutoff short shorts and overize flannels, but I suppose it is up to the runways to tell us what is truly trending. Maybe plaid's supposed lack of popularity is why I got all those awesome shirts half off at the thrift shop (and various mall stores). In any case, I have over-embraced this trend without shame. Plaid pencil skirts are fun for Fall, but flannels will always be my favorite- especially this style from Free People that can be a dress (at least on my shorter frame- sorry,models).
