Plaid, Can You Pull It Off?
Baby Phat (plus size)
I haven't seen plaid in style since the late 1980's - early 1990's.
"LUMBERJACK jacket with the hat to match" anyone?
Plaid is traditionally seen as a strong menswear pattern.
You may be able to rock this pattern with a few feminine tweaks.
PLAID = any fabric woven of differently colored yarns in a crossbarred pattern.

Madras Usually worn during the summer months
Bold patterns can be a bit overwhelming for me.
A solid wide belt to cinch the waist feminizes the lumberjack effect.
For even more feminine appeal, consider a sheer flowy fabric like silk.

Look for tailored woven tops to flatter your figure.
Consider a CRISP white blouse or a solid turtleneck with a patterned skirt.
If you are not confident or bold enough to get in on this trend by wearing a shirt/blouse. Why not consider wearing solids with just a couple of plaid accessories.
Remember to ask yourself, "Am I wearing this outfit, or is it wearing me?"
You don't want to come off cartoonish or costumey.
- Keep it simple.
