I love the shirt in the second image – I’m really not the biggest fan of plaid but that looks so classic. Also the setting is beautiful and really compliments the shades in her outfit and her smile. I like how the lady in the first image has paired her shirt with dark wash jeans – it looks young but a little bit more sophisticated than lighter washes would.
I definitely like this, even if it’s kind of uniform. After too many years of slip dresses, shrunken belly shirts and plumber-crack tight jeans, this look is asexual, slouchy, cool and anti-consumer (no giant status bags!) . You wonder what they’re reading and what they’re thinking rather than gauging their body parts. Plaid is rad.
i'm not overly impressed with any of these photos as stylish expressions of plaid. I think if you're going to wear plaid or tartan you should really go for it – take inspiration from D&G's fall/winter collection or look back to Alexander McQueen's Highland Rape collection or even at old photos of the Duke of Windsor. Plaid should be a statement, not a detail. Men in plaid or tartan trousers – fabulous. Check out http://www.dashingtweeds.co.uk some of the most interesting new suiting designs i've seen in ages!
Where I come from the ordinary plaid shirt is worn by suburban no-hopers and drug addicts – male and female – unfinished people really, nothing cool. So it’s strange to seem them worn like this. Apart from in the first photo, these shirts really don’t do anything for the wearer. I’m surprised they are even featured in this blog.
LOVE the plaid! I am excited that I kept my thrift store find from a few years ago- a plaid Ralph Lauren shirt just like the one in the first pic!!!I continue to love your blog too ..great pics from RIO!
THE 3rd one looks awsome… sheÂ´s relaxed and sheÂ´s not trying hard on the look. besides the color of the background matches with the sneakers and socks. the blue pant itÂ´s dramatic enough but yet sport. not trendy enough and timeless
WOW I really didnt think anyone would like the second outfit. But I was mistaken. I really think the second outfit lacks form and beauty. The pants and the shirt over it does nothing for her shape. The shoes looks like clogs. And the colors really dont match in my opinion. But I love the third pic. She looks great and her outfit makes a wonderful shape. First one is nice too.
The second girl is a breath of fresh air! Lovely face with carefree classic style. Even if the pants are fit for someone much older, I like this unexpected choice. It desexes the outfit & makes her fit for boating in a revamped impressionist painting.
My 17 year old, who is absolutely in love with flannel plaids (circa 1969 thru 1971) had two comments- 1st- woah- they are doing it with jackets. 2nd- Whats up with the mc hammer pants! :D to each generation their own. And God Bless the child… Love it that you have these here sart. Any excuse to talk to my son about fashion is fabulous! Happy Thanksgiving!
