We feel like we should have called this post “Mad for Plaid” or something similarly cheesy: that IS what almost all of these photos have in common, after all.
Next aren’t the only brand to be embracing plaid for Winter 2013: in fact, most of the brands we’ve previewed so far have included the print in some form or another, and that’s not surprising – it’s yet another one of those so-called “trends” that are actually not trends at all, because they crop up at the same time every year.
While Next aren’t the only ones touting plaid as an important part of the upcoming season, however, they do seem particularly enthusiastic about it, putting it on shirts, trousers, skirts and even tights. This season’s plaid is the grungy, outdoorsy type, rathwr than the preppy, tartan variety of last season: think lumberjack shirts and cabins in the woods, as opposed to cashmere sweaters and strings of pearls.
What do you think of it, though? Take a look at the gallery below to see some more…
