Like the little black dress, plaid never really goes out of style. That said, it has moments of ascendancy: the ’60s, the ’90s, and right now, when to be out of plaid is to be out of fashion.
Some of my favorite pieces come from Pendleton, an iconically autumnal brand justly famed for its old-school quality. The Pendleton Portland Collection boasts all the vintage details and beautiful fabrics I’ve come to love from period pieces, with a modern, wearable spin that pairs just right with J Brand skinny jeans and Frye boots. What’s not to love?
