It seems everyone is sporting plaid this season. Hailing from a proud Scotch-Irish family, I, certainly, am no exception. I was very excited to see versions of my family's MacArthur tartan popping up both on the runway and in store (H&M, J. Crew, and Madewell to name a few).

Below are some great, though slightly modified, versions of the MacArthur plaid:
