Plaid Pants first appeared on Chictopia's streetstyle gallery in Summer 2008 seen on Houston blogger MichelleYue of missnonhuman.blogspot.com. She styled her black Forever 21 plaid pants with a brown American Apparel tri-blend, tank, coffee shirt, brown tory burch ballet flats shoes, and black coach thrifted bag. Since then, Plaid Pants have grown in popularity as bloggers from Los Angeles, New York, and Washington have discovered them. Plaid Pants are generally seen in chic, casual, and classic style. Popular brands of Plaid Pants are Uniqlo, vintage, Zara, Forever 21, and H&M.
