Plaid is a staple Autumn print ripe for an update, and the Spring 2013 catwalks have certainly done just that. The resurgence of '90s grunge has seen the checkered style in firm favour, but this time with a twist thanks to clever print and fabric pairings. Dries Van Noten's show at Paris Fashion Week teamed plaid with sheer floaty florals, intricate embellishment and punchy metallics. Over at Milan Fashion Week, the Max Mara show teamed the Fall classic with leopard print resulting in a safari vibe, while the sheer styling was taken to the extreme at New York Fashion Week when Jill Stuart showed an ivory plaid three-quarter sleeve fitted dress.
