Hot Fall Shoe Trends 2009: Mad for plaid shoes
Fall and plaid have always been a classic pair, but it seems especially so this year. We’ve seen a bit of a resurgence of the ever-popular print lately, perhaps in a nod to the 90’s grunge trend – except much more polished and chic. Plaid has definitely moved well beyond it’s own stereotypes (think: lumberjacks, school girls in uniforms, constructions workers, golfers etc.) and has found it’s way into much more fashionable territory – fitted blazers, cute button-downs and, of course, shoes. Here are a few of my favorite plaid pairs:
