Fall runways are usually replete with plaid, but trust me, you ain't seen plaid like this before: D&G's Fall 2008 Ready-to-wear collection makes plaid look absolutely exhilarating. Every look is to die for. This is why I love fashion - the ingenuity. Just when you thought everything that could be done with plaid had been done before, you witness something like this. Plaid that's feminine. Plaid that's bohemian. Plaid that's tailored, prim and proper. But don't take my word for it. Click on over to Style.com and experience the collection for yourself. If you're feeling inspired, Forever 21 makes plaid affordable with this adorable, naughty schoolgirl number (above right). Pair with a blazer, opaque tights and heeled oxfords for your own D&G moment...for less.
