Buffalo checks, tartans and argyles move away from their preppy or lumberjack roots and become a bit edgier for next fall. These country or collegiate favorites are cut into chic midi-skirts, tromp l’oeil dresses, bodysuits, bras — even socks. While the colors remain fairly traditional — reds, blues, browns, and forest greens — newness comes from playing with scale, silhouette and surface treatments like quilting. A gigantic argyle is used for an oversized pullover. Blanket-fringe edges help underscore the cozy cabin feel.
