Pretty in Plaid
First, I think we should address the question on all of our minds since the plaid/tartan trend has been on the rise… WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLAID AND TARTAN?! I have been curious about this for months and just decided to use my good friend google to solve the mystery for myself and thought I’d share.
This could be extremely long and drawn out, but I’ll make it simple… On second thought, I’m still pretty confused about it so you may not want to take my word for it… but I think tartan is a scottish pattern which varies according to the clan its associated with, while plaid is traditionally a garment, not a pattern. For the the purposes of this article, I’m going to go ahead and call everything plaid. Cool? Cool.
I think we can all agree that plaid rules and should be worn as often as possible in the cooler months. So let’s take a look at some of my favorite ways to take part in the trend!
