While plaids are often associated with dressing for fall, there are some that are perfect harbingers of spring. Think houndstooth checks in black and white or pastel colors. Think plaids in paler, more muted tones like tans, blues, aquas or pinks. Think plaids and checks in small or micro scale. Think lighter weight tropical wools or rayons. Think plaids and checks for spring! The looks today are from Spring 1959.
