Praise for Plaid
Plaid is in... So do we grab our bagpipes and start running for the hills? Or do we fall in love with the trend all over again?
Plaid paints a patient past, always waiting to circle back into our closets. Well beauties, the wait is over. Cast your minds away from textbook plaid (yes, I mean that naughty school girl costume in the back of your wardrobe), and think street style phenomena.
It’s one of the most recognizable trends in the world, coming in almost every colour and shade under the sun. We have seen the trend in our backyard and overseas, in the streets and online. Copenhagen fashion week (spring/ summer 2019) took a stance, proving there’s no such thing as too much plaid. This year Scandi style made a name for itself, with Scandinavian IT- Girls following the cobblestoned path to becoming known for having some of the best street style in the world (and if they want to wear plaid, we must all wear plaid!).
The once traditional skirt and trench, now comes in every form, shoes, pants, a hat, and everything in between. Not only have big international brands taken the hint, such as Zara, Balenciaga and Calvin Klein, but home grown Australian brands like C/MEO, The Fifth Label, Finders Keepers, Lee Mathews, Bianca Spender and many more! So ladies, now it’s your duty to cross check your wardrobe and make sure plaid is front and center this season. Check out some of my new season favourites you won’t want to miss (or maybe you will if you are trying to save… because these babies suck you in).
