Pair plaid skirts with "classy tights"
Plaid has returned to the lists of the fashionable with a vengeance, a style commentator notes.

Meredeth McMahon, writing for, explains autumn fashions will contain fun plaid skirts, jackets and ties.

However, she warns women to be wary as short plaid skirts can sometimes look less tartan and more tarty, unless paired with some attractive tights.

"If the skirt is short, wear opaque tights to keep it classy," Ms McMahon recommends.

Her advice comes in the same year that saw bare legs being banned from the august surroundings of Ascot.

The prestigious horse racing event called for ladies to be dressed with the formality appropriate to an event being attended by royalty, meaning tights were in and bare legs out as organisers clamped down on casual dress.
