What is it about an early snowfall and the smell of burning firewood that makes us crave all things plaid? Perhaps it's the colored lines crossing over one another like ribbons on a package, or the fact that the pattern tends to find itself on cozy, woolly fabrics. At any other time of the year, we find ourselves asking, "Does this make me look like a lumberjack? Or a hipster? Or Scottish?" But from November 1 to the end of December, copious amounts of tartan feels just right. If you find your closet still lacking the official pattern of every holiday season, this pair of trousers will do just the trick.
Zara Checked Trousers, $79.90.
