Plaid denotes the epitome of cozy. It also, unfortunately, reminds me of my 90s grunge days. Luckily 2010 does it a lot better than plaid flannel shirts and t-shirts. This fall plaid has come back in a huge way. It has graced the runway and now home decor. Target even came out with table linens in a plaid print! I love it, there is something so homey and colorful about plaid. It's the perfect way to add some texture and color without overwhelming or creating cartoony decor. Hopefully this will come back next fall as well. It's pretty fantastic!
