Plaid is a common staple in many wardrobes, and in the past year this fashion item has become more popular than ever. However, just because this piece of clothing has timeless, age-old roots, doesn't mean it remains static. Fashion designers are constantly revamping this look, and pairing the pattern with unconventional pieces. Trend Hunter dives into the most forward-thinking ideas put forth with the Plaid Trend Report.

From catwalks with models dressed as mimes to caped menswear looks, plaid has been paired with items that stand out. In doing so, designers shed fresh light on this traditional look, allowing fashionable, risk-taking individuals to spice up their outfits instead of relying on the simple plaid pattern to do the trick.
