The sweltering hot summer comes to an end and Seattle Academy students are brought back to gray and rainy reality. We pack away our summer shorts and retreat to oversized sweaters. Our summer sandals are traded for black leather boots, and tank tops become flannels. As I wait in line at Stumptown, I observe the numerous fashion trends that seem to fill our school. Every student has an individual sense of style and taste, but there seems to be a common trend that is slipping into everyone’s outfits: PLAID. Our school is teeming with the various colors of plaids and flannels. I have seen everything from plaid shirts and skirts to plaid tights and shoes. The design that was once reserved solely for school uniforms is making a comeback on the fashion scene. Here are a few looks that appeared on the runway during New York fashion week this September.
