I had to wear plaid to prep school when I lived in Ghana and loathed the print when I came to the U.S. in 1995. I was pretty lucky to skip the uniform dress code during middle and high school but for the past couple of months, I’ve been seeing plaid everywhere. Celebrities like Zach Efron, Beyonce, Rob Pattinson and Emma Watson and First Lady Michelle Obama are all mad about plaid and it shows in some of their fashion choices.
My favorite boys in the city, none other than the DC United soccer players, have adopted the plaid shirt, jeans and Chuck Taylors as their go to outfit for casual nights on the town. These boys are so in shape that nothing looks bad on them, not even plaid. Brandon Barklage in his blue plaid shirt.
Bryan Namoff has also been known to rock plaid on occassion. He’s seen here wearing a baby blue plaid shirt dark denim. You don’t have to wait until the fall to wear dark color plaid that is synonymous with Burberry and Ralph Lauren. All the looks get two thumbs up from me. An now it’s your turn to look perfect in plaid.
