Trend: Plaid and Why I Love it

YOUR FALL WARDROBE IS GETTING A PLAID UPGRADE AND ITS 100% APPROVED

1990s signature styles are officially back in fashion and designers from Dior to Balenciaga have offered an abundance of plaid in their Fall/Winter 2019 Collection. I mean, who wasn’t obsessed with the iconic plaid outfit of Cher Horowitz in the movie Clueless? I certainly remember rewatching it far too many times, and even trying to copy some of her looks.

As the ’90s craze continues, plaid is making a comeback in everyone’s wardrobe, including mine. Since you guys know how much I love keeping you informed about all the hottest trends, I thought you would be interested to know about its origins too. Tartan can be traced back to the 14th century Scottish Highlands, where wool weavers would create unique patterns in order to distinguish one region from another, but it was re-introduced to the mainstream by fashion. Designers like Vivienne Westwood and her cult boutique “SEX” , as well as Alexander McQueen and his controversial “Highland Rape” collection, as a reference to his Scottish heritage. Plaid was commonly associated with punk and grunge aesthetic. Interestingly enough, tartan’s history is a story about identity, from it’s Scottish origins to Britain’s punk and Burberry’s iconic heritage print.

FROM THE FRONT ROW TO THE STREETS, ALL IS PLAID THIS SEASON.

From Prince of Wales to tartan and tweed, plaid is a fall/winter must-have for the season.  I gave the heritage trend update with the help of Prada, daring to go with bold colours and styling. Plaid from head to toe is a bold place to start, but to be honest I had so much fun styling this outfit that I wanted to share it with you! I paired it with my beloved Prada combat boots and Chanel Top Handle, reinventing a Blair Waldorf classic look, for a modern preppy feel.

Lately many of you have written to me that you don’t always want to buy expensive ready to wear, and that sometimes trend are best of left to high street. Since I love to mix and match – high and low, I opted for detailed lists of best tartan pieces for every pocket. Super curious to hear if you pick anything up.

Browse below for my favourite pieces from Prada to H&M (spoiler: I managed to find a great dupe for my Jacket, as well as amazing pieces on sale).
