Hello people. How are we doing?
I hope that the past week has been great for you all..and I also hope that all my lovely readers in India have caught up on ROCKSTAR. I have seen the movie twice - back-to-back shows literally – and I absolutely loved it!!
Before penning this post I was just surfing the internet (read - reading your wonderful blogs, checking fashion sites, latest collections and of course online retail portals..long live ASOS) and repeatedly came across the term “Burberry Plaid.” This intrigued me to learn more about the different varieties of this forever - in - vogue fabric called PLAID, which is a winter synonym.
I am guessing many of you, like me, must have heard about these varieties..but just attempting to get into a little depth here..hope you guys enjoy this!!
But before that, here’s my Plaid outfit. It’s something I wore shopping with my parents, about a week back.
This outfit has been inspired by my ever so favourite – BLAIR WALDORF.
That's what the ever charming Blair wore:
I skipped the hat (quite obvious - imagine me walking in an exhibition with my parents and a hat) and carried a black bag instead of the red. I completed the look with this delicate neck-piece.
Plaid Skirt - Tailored
Crochet Top - Next (You can see me wearing the same here)
Wrap - Bershka Dubai (Catch me wearing it long here)
Bag - Elle
Stockings - Forever 21
Ballerina Flats - Local Store in Chandigarh
Neck-piece - Claire's
So, starting with the tutorial basics..what is plaid?
A plaid is a pattern consisting of crossed horizontal and vertical bands in two or more colors in woven cloth.
The fabric has the following types:
(Note the visible differences in each type, although the basic weave remains the checked pattern.)
1. Scottish Tartan
2. Gingham Check
3. Burberry Plaid
4. Madras Check
