The Good, The Plaid, and the Beautiful

Is it possible to have too much tartan?  Don't be ridiculous.  From luxuries to living to L.L. Bean, we just cannot get enough, especially this time of year.  Way back when, in Scotland, certain highland tartans were associated with specific regions because local weavers made use of the natural dyes in that area.  Now, we associate all of them with tried and true cold weather chic.  Because these plaids are so traditional, we love them draped in unique silos and situations to give them a modern edge.  Don't be afraid to mix, match and layer them up; with so much print and plaid mixing right now, more is more.  Can you hear the bagpipes?
