The US Elle October 2013 editorial took inspiration from the Scottish Highlands, and created a gorgeous spread full of fun fall fashion.
With the recent punk revival, plaid has been used extensively. However, punk plaid is different from traditional styles that have been designed for comfort and wearability.
The clothes in the editorial is a mix of patterns, but there is a distinct predominance on gingham. The outfits vary from dresses to pant suits, and they use knee high socks and pleats to drive the theme home. The backdrop is a picturesque rocky setting which works perfectly with the Scottish inspiration.
The US Elle October 2013 editorial showed that plaid is a versatile fabric, and you don't need to be into hardcore punk to pull the look off.
