A tartan plaid is a pattern on cloth of stripes with different widths that cross each other to form squares associated with Scotland. Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. Tartan plaids are very popular for Scottish kilts, scarfs and hats.
Plaids,Trendy and Classic
Choose plaids with colors that flatter your skin tone. Size is another very important consideration. A small person looks best in tiny to small plaids and taller thinner figure types can wear medium sized plaids. Muted plaids are best on large women. Large plaids will call attention to you and your size, but they can add excitement to an outfit as accessories.
