Plaid was just a lumberjack’s staple in the 1850s, but by the 1970s, it was reflective of rustic fashion and a devil-may-care attitude. In the 1990s, it became the unofficial symbol of the grunge movement. The pattern has come a long way and this season, it was spotted on the runways of Chloé, Lacoste and Balenciaga. For a twist on the look, take your cue from Tory Burch and match a pair of checkered pants with a bright-coloured top.
