I'm way late on this trend, but for some reason I wasn't really into it when it first popped up a few months ago. Oddly enough, plaid makes me think of lumberjacks and hipsters (are hipsters even still wearing plaid now that it's mainstream? Are they wearing it ironically?), but it has started to grow on me. I only have one plaid item (a purple and black shirt that I bought when I was in 10th or 11th grade that still fits), but I'm going to wear it a lot more now. It's really warm and cozy. Perfect for winter!
