Pretty in Plaid Dresses

We all know that plaid is huge this Fall. If you're looking for a way to wear it, why not try a plaid dress? There's just something really fun and unexpected about this look. Plaid has a slightly preppy, British feel, but using it in a dress gives the pattern a funky edge. Here are some of my favorite plaid dresses, both aspirational and obtainable.

Zac Posen Tartan Dress, $2,600, available here.

Alexander McQueen Plaid Ruffle Dress, $6,965, available here.

Kay Unger New York Strapless Plaid Dress, $430, available here.

L.A.M.B. Scoop Neck Dress, $365, available here.

To see the rest,

What Comes Around Goes Around Gibson Wool Mini Dress, $330, available here.

Wet Seal Plaid Tube Dress, $24.50, available here.

BCBG Max Azria Plaid Jersey Dress, $160, available here.

Forever 21 Plaid Tube Dress, $27.80, available here.

I don't know...I used to have a couple pair of bootcut plaid pants...wear them with a black sweater or T-shirt, I really liked those...but something is off about the dresses. They look more fit to be draped over windows, not worn by actual humans. Plaid accessories are cool. I have a couple plaid hats. The longer plaid dresses up there are overkill.

I agree, Nica, I thought of that, too.

i like the LAMB one the best. however, seeing the red plaid tub dress just reminds me of that Sex and the City episode where Charlotte and Trey have that big fight at the Scottish dance.

If I was going to spend that much money on a dress it would have to be a wedding dress but even then I don't think I would spend that much.

Six THOUSAND nine hundred dollars for a dress? That's a lot for any dress, but that dress?

I like the Zac Posen, Kay Unger and Wet Seal. The Wet Seal one would look cute with a turtle neck underneath, and tights w/ boots...for winter. :)

I love the Alexander McQueen dress!! I have always had a passion for plaid. Funny thing, I have had a red/black plaid ivy cap that I bought like 10 years ago and I still have it because I love it so much. Now that plaid is coming back in style for dresses, well, just a slice of heaven for me...

I like the Zac Posen. It's funny, I almost Fab Found the Alexander McQueen, like ten minutes ago, for RED Fab Find Thursday, but then I got distracted and forgot to go back to do it. I still have up in another window and everything!
