Style at Home: Types of plaid everyone should know -- all about plaid

While we refer to the colder months as “plaid season” thanks to the warm and homey atmosphere it creates (and the fact that it pairs so well with a crackling fireplace), it is a wonderful and stunning fabric to use year-round.

Classic plaids have a traditional feel but can be modernized depending on the chosen color palette. Plaid to me is slipping on your favorite sweatshirt, cozy, comfortable and unconcerned about changing trends.
