Plaid > Wiki


Plaid is a Scots language word meaning blanket, usually referring to patterned woollen cloth. It is unclear if the Gaelic word Plaide  came first.

    * A plaid or full plaid is a pleated cloth worn with the modern kilt, made from the same tartan and worn cast over the shoulder and fastened at the front.

    * The belted plaid or great kilt is an earlier form of the kilt.

    * A plaid rug is a large thick woolen twill cloth, often tartan, used as a travel rug or as a blanket.

    * "Plaid" is also used as a synonym for tartan or, in the USA, any checked cloth.

Everyone is MAD for PLAID

It wasn't until MK was running around Manhattan in oversized plaids, half way buttoned, with loads of gold necklaces, that I even gave this trend a thought.      Now, of course, I have an entire section in my closet dedicated to my worn in, oversized plaids. I think I could own 100 plaid shirts and never get sick of this trend.      I spotted three CollegeFashionistas …
