I am loving the tartan plaid trend. I have never been one to wear prints, but tartan is a fun way to edge up an outfit. In the '80s, British designer Vivian Westwood put the tartan trend on the map with her punk-grunge influence.  

A little touch of the trend in a chic scarf or structured jacket can add whimsy to your daily look. If you're feeling daring enough to wear plaid-on-plaid, like Cher Horowitz in "Clueless", go for it! This trend is, like, totally cool. Just be sure to keep everything else in your ensemble basic. 

What are your thoughts on tartan?
