Plaid Your Fashion?

I'm watching a fall fashion trend with interest.  Plaid.  I find more references on Google from runway appearances than in catalogs.  I haven't seen any of the designers on Project Runway wear it or show it but it's here and I was inspired to look around.  

Here's the familiar cosmopolitan Burberry in a trendy style.

A more sedate take on plaid.  

Everything old is new again.  
Several of these, in a variety of plaids, could be found at any holiday or winter social occasion back in the seventies.  

Jessica Alba if you're shopping.

Here are some skirted options.  I wore pleated plaid skirts with knee socks in the sixties.  Now it is tights and/or tall boots.

Not these, of course, but speaking of boots!  Sport up your trench coat look with a pair of these.

Nothing new here but a good option for staying on trend in a minimally plaid way.

Or take it with a shirtful of easy - plaid flannel.  Old Navy, I think.

The piece de resistance from my study.  Slippers.  Aren't they adorable?  Find them at Rocket Dog.
