With so many variations in color and pattern that make up a plaid pattern, there are endless possibilities for fashion designers to embrace. The classic pattern is incredibly versatile. It can look crisp and regal on a blazer, or quite casual when paired with other grunge-inspired garments like a leather jackets.

Plaid prints have been around for centuries and it is constantly being reinterpreted for men and women. The chic, versatile pattern is one that will be around for many more seasons to come.
