Admiring Angie's lovely outfit recently, I am looking for some help thinking about plaid. As much as it appeals to my sense of style and love of pattern, I don't buy it as I am worried about it not being flattering on me. I am 5'4" and pretty curvy. Perhaps if I could find an item where the overall impression is more vertical than horizontal? What if the item is very tailored? How do I balance it out? Should this just be something I skip?
