16 Pink Plaid and Argyle Patterns and Backgrounds

Argyle and plaid are popular pattern designs for clothing such as for dresses, jackets, scarf, as well as for socks. If you do not know what an argyle is, it is a pattern made of diamonds or lozenges. Most argyle designs feature layers of overlapping motifs, adding a sense of three-dimensionality, movement, and texture. Typically, there is an overlay of intercrossing diagonal lines on solid diamonds.

Plaid, on the other hand, is the American and Canadian English word for tartan, a pattern consisting of crossed horizontal and vertical bands in two or more colors in woven cloth. Tartans originated in woven wool, but now they are made in many other materials. Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland. Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. Common examples of plaid patterns include Gingham and Border tartan, featuring bands of equal widths in a simple pattern similar to check pattern.
