Guide to the
Most Stylish Cities

City: London, UK
Trend:   Plaid Outerwear
Season: Winter 2008/9

Classic fabrics such as plaid and tartan were seen throughout the Fall/Winter runways, with Dolce & Gabbana leading the pack.

Their D&G ready-to-wear collection (video below) made everyone—me included—a little mad for plaid by mixing mismatched patterns into one look.

Given how the line was inspired by England’s very own Queen, it is no wonder that Londoners were one of the first to charter the trend.

Lighter pieces such as tights and soft chiffon leave plaid clothing, especially outerwear, feeling a little less heavy. So save the flirty floral prints for the spring season and fall into the comfort of this currently dominant print.
