Graphic Plaid 1930′s Dress

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

If you haven’t guessed it by now, I love plaid in its varying forms (hello, gingham!), but it’s really hard to do larger plaids well. I prefer large plaids if they are graphic and are made into a well-tailored garment, just like this plaid dress that I found on eBay today.

The styling on this is adorable – the little hat, the belt, the pixie haircut… I also love the bows down the front, and the subtle detail that the plaids are symmetrical from the back of the dress, both horizontal and on the diagonal (you’ll have to click on the link to see the back, I couldn’t get the photo off the auction page), which makes this dress a really cool piece of clothing.

  1. Mmmmm…amazing! I love the style of the presentation- really works with the dress.

    The colours and pattern are so different- like it’s right out of some Bauhaus textile workshop, or Sonia Delaunay…
