My college English professor would have been so furious at this totally cliché, pathetically rhymed next statement, but here it is; I am, in fact, ‘Mad for Plaid’.
Somewhere between the floral overload that was my childhood – right down to the Laura Ashley bedspread! – and mismatched print frenzy I’ve had going since kindergarten, plaid, polka dots, and florals are my idea of wardrobe cornerstones. Aside from the fact that I was forced to wear a plaid skirt every single day of my greater childhood, Catholic School, left me with much more than just the guilt. I quickly learned that plaid in any form, is not only classic, but potentially sexy. My closing argument in the ‘Mad for Plaid’ campaign, is that an oversized print – like this one - when paired with leather and some version of a flatform, is just the toughtest. Insta-tough outfits are my personal favorite… More on this later.
