Trend to Try: Madras
This preppy staple has been revamped and remixed to become the buzz of the moment, seen all over the catwalks in flowing dresses and skirts, and even cute short jumpsuits. But do you think this iconic pattern is a check or an X?
Madras is a lightweight cotton fabric with typically patterned texture and plaid design, used primarily for summer clothing such as pants, shorts, dresses, and jackets. The fabric takes its name from the former name of the city of Chennai, India. This cloth also was identified by the colloquial name, “Madrasi checks.”
