What better way to prepare for fall than to embrace the power of plaid? The distinguished pattern has become impossibly chic. Just check out the Paris runway shows or Rihanna’s latest look. You will see the iconic check has undergone quite a style evolution.
Of course, there is a lot for the choosing. Whether in gingham, houndstooth or buffalo check, plaid is definitely more colorful. The most modern looks were bright, patterned combinations of mid-length skirts, layered separates, and exaggerated outerwear.
You will see new shapes emerging in all of the above. Not ready to be the center of everyone’s attention? Simply adding accessories in chic black-and-white tartan provides an instant update. So let’s elevate this season by keeping our checks in balance!
