Trend Alert: Mad for Plaid

Posted on September 10 2018

As we saw on the Fall 2018 Runways, rich classic fabrics will be all over the place!  Classic fabrics frequently used on Savile Row, the mecca for modern bespoke tailoring in London, are lending a hand to the prints we'll be wearing all through winter.  Luxe houndstooth, plaid and herringbone are looking richer than ever this season!



Everything from matching sets, suiting, and neon plaid graced the runways of top designers.  Go all out with the trend or add a pop of print to ease into the trend.  Take a peek below to see our plaid and houndstooth offerings that we'll be wearing all season long, in unexpected ways.


Channel the Fendi runway with the Free People Charlie Wide Leg Pant.  Let the paper bag silhouette and soft plaid print do the talking by keeping your top and accessories neutral.  Paired back with the Break Away Pullover, all eyes are on the Charlie!
Take a hint from Jonathan Simkhai and wear check print from head to toe!  The Check Mesh Twist Jumpsuit from MinkPink is the perfect pre-fall jumpsuit.  Breezy enough in the fabric weight as well as with the front cutout under the bust for a warmer day, but in a great Fall silhouette!  Pair with your favorite booties or a heel for a night out.  
Your inner Cher Horowitz is screaming for you to put this on!!  Take some style cues from one of our favorite movies...Clueless, duh and the Versace runway with the Free People Boston Tee.  This fitted, crop would look perfect with a Clueless-esque school girl skirt or even a pair of great high-waisted black skinnies.  The bright yellow houndstooth in this top will make any outfit you style it with on trend.
Ease into the plaid trend with a flat, front fitted trouser from BB Dakota.  This lightweight pant is perfect to wear now with sandals and a flowy top or for Fall with a chunky sweater and boots.  Don't be afraid to create a more casual look with a great sneaker and fitted tee!  
We've been all about the matching set for Summer and we're sure as hell embracing it for Fall too!  The Modern Love Set is really giving us M Missoni runway vibes with the navy based plaid.  This fitted number can be worn together or separate (woah, so many options) and for so many occasions.  We're especially loving the corset silhouette on top - it adds the perfect feminine touch.
The easiest way to adopt the plaid trend for fall: blazers, blazers, blazers!  The Chess Blazer is a fitted, menswear inspired one button blazer that hits the plaid trend on the head.  Pair with a great vintage light wash denim or even over a great dress.  Size up one or two sizes for a great oversized fit a la Gabriela Hearst and Versace runways.
