Oh how this print takes me back to my Textile 201 days at Texas in Gearing Hall!  I remember sitting there with my box of over a hundred tiny fabric swatches attached to 5 x 7 cards with all of their noted properties next to them.  “Windowpane?  Really? Are we certain we shouldn’t just lump all of the plaids, glen plaids, checks, buffalo checks, and all of the other intersecting straight line patterns together?”  More than a few years late, I’m now learning to appreciate the sophistication of the windowpane print.  Think of it as plaid’s less lumberjack-ish, more chic big sister.  After all, what more do you need than the stamp of approval from street style star, Taylor Tomasi Hill?  Buy it now and wear all the way through Spring.  This style isn’t going anywhere any time soon.  In fact, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing even more of it in the Fall 2013 collections that will be showing next month.  Here’s hoping!


  1. I like it, and didn’t know it was called ‘Windowpane’, so, thanks for the fashion lesson 🙂 always great learning new things. (PS – those pants! *swoon*)

  2. I love the first bag but I don’t know if I can pull off this look! I might have too many curves in the wrong places that might make the window panes too groovy! =) I like it though!!

  3. I love this pattern – TTH definitely rocks it!

  4. simple and classic and in some instances feels slightly retro. cannot wait to see more in everyday for a fresh look for spring.
