Bring on the Plaid
Autumn is my absolute favorite season and I’m beyond ready for it. Summer was beautiful this year — more so than most — but I’m ready for football, layers, and plaid! While I don’t have a lot of the classic pattern lining my wardrobe, I do have a few pieces for my home that I really look forward to digging out as soon as the temperature starts dropping below 50-degrees in the evenings.
The obvious way to bring out season patterns is through accessories and small textiles — think throws, kitchen linens, etc. But another way is by switching up your bedding. I have the sweetest set of light grey flannel plaid sheets that more or less live on my bed during the chilliest months of the year.
Done right plaid can look downright modern. It’s all about the setting you place it in as well as the style you choose. A pattern with fewer color tones and a larger graphic look does the trick quite nicely.
If you’d rather bring plaid into your space in a more year round permanent way I’d suggest sticking to that same idea. Stick to the same color family as your other large pieces, a big and bold pattern instead of a smaller more detailed one, and sleek lines.
Plaid is one of the most timeless patterns, it’s been around for centuries and will be around for many more. Fall is a welcome time to experiment with this bold look in an unapologetic way.
