We are ready for fall at Brooklyn Cloth and what is more fall than plaid plaid this fall because it’s the perfect piece for any outfit to give that outdoorsy lived-in look. Whether you’re out at a football game, picking pumpkins, or need something cozy for your Halloween costume, it’s a perfect time to wear the season’s most festive print. This iconic look has been coming back season after season even before the fashion show began.
Historically, the Scottish invented tartan, now called plaid, in the 18th century as a way to dress their tribe. When the American and British recreated the textile, it became plaid as we know it today. In the 70’s it was worn on popular TV and became a hit, where it transitioned in the 80s to the grunge that many are accustomed to seeing it as today.
Even in the 90s and 00s we saw plaid take a different turn with ripped jeans and combat boots or worn as a mini skirt with a preppy sweater. While many wore it as overcoats for warmth, that still shows today with fashions like Gucci and their capes, the Madewell blazer, or Brooklyn Cloth's cozy sherpa-lined jacket.
Why Keeps Coming Back
Many also associate with working outside or cozying up on the couch, which is why many likely flock to it when the weather gets colder. The stress of school starting and holidays on the horizon makes many want to crawl back into the covers while working when the weather drops is enough for anyone to think twice about snoozing their alarm.
The ease and access of the pattern, making a plaid look good on virtually anyone, along with being able to layer up during colder months is why many people flock to the pattern. Waking up early to bring the kids to school, going out to work in the cold weather, or during the morning commute, something that will look good and feel amazing is best for most people, which is why the versatile fabric makes its debut every fall season.
