Mad About Plaid: One Fall Trend Worn Three Ways

By Aarian Frye, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Hello all, and welcome to fall! For me, this is the best season of the year. It has the best holidays (Halloween and Thanksgiving!), basketball season is starting (Go Phoenix Suns!), my birthday is just around the corner (November!), and the air is beginning to cool (you can walk outside here in Tucson without melting into a puddle)! To my last point, cooler weather brings the best part of autumn: fall fashion! I love to layer my clothing and there’s no better time to experiment with trends. This week, I paid a visit to Buffalo Exchange Tucson to search for plaid in its many forms: gingham, tartan and more! Read ahead to check out all the pieces I found and how I styled plaid three different ways.

For my first look, I experimented with a punk rock vibe and mixed two distinct patterns at once: Madras and Glen plaid. Named for its origin city of Madras, India (now Chennai), Madras plaid is recognized by its widely variable color combos and checkboard pattern – and this denim jacket does not fall short of that description! I paired it with a more subtle gray Glen Plaid (hailing from Scotland) and a mustard-yellow velvet mock neck.

Fringe Benefits

There’s nothing I love more than a coordinating set! I found a great deal on this two-piece. This set is breezy for summer, but I know it’ll look great with a cardigan and boots when the weather cools down. Because I came in under my budget for this item, I took the plunge and bought a saddle bag with colorful suede fringe as well. This is going to add some serious flair to all of my fall outfits!
