Until recently I really was not on board with the plaid trend. I mean really? Why would I wear that? And then one day things changed. I bought a plaid button down and then another one and another one and now I am a bit obsessed. (I only own a handful btw). Even though I didn't get to follow NYFW the way I wanted to I tried best to follow via twitter and one of the trends that kept popping up was plaid. Now I am still a little weary of going all out with the plaid but I can't help but consider the following pieces. The fact that they are all under $25 doesn't hurt either.
