Maybe it has something to do with being in high-school and college during the “grunge” years, but I always think there is a need in a fall wardrobe for a plaid shirt to wear with denim of some sort, like Caroline de Maigret (left) and Jennifer Neyt (right). (I feel like I should know the woman in the middle from fashion week, but I don’t.) Strangely there are not that many options at the moment. My favorite, which I picked on my recent trip to California is from Jenni Kayne. It’s soft and also comes in tempting non-plaids, plus she has other plaid styles from which to choose. R13 has a distressed version Étoile Isabel Marant offers a vivid plaid, and if you want luxe, there is Saint Laurent.
