Think of some of the movies from the '90s. What comes to mind? None other than Clueless.
The lingo. The romance. The acting. It was all so cool.
But--the fashion--ahhh yes, the fashion was unlike anything else. Remember Cher's and Dionne's plaid blazers and matching pleated skirts? To this day, I have yearned for a similar set to magically appear in my closet.
And now, my prayers have been answered, it seems. Just look to the streets for Fall/Winter '13, and you will be seeing stripes virtually everywhere.
I've always been a fan of a plaid buttondown, but there are so many other ways to wear the tartan look. I recommend starting with a printed circle skirt or a scarf, especially if you are unsure about the trend.
Once you find your inner Cher with the checked pattern, you can even mix and match different colored and sized plaids in one outfit. You will be 90's grunge meets supermodel-off-duty chic.

It's about time you got mad for plaid this season.. all the cool kids are doing it.
After all, you'll be anything but clueless.
