Mad About Plaid
Fall is now well under way and there’s nothing like this time of year for cozying up in casual clothing. Whether you’re sipping pumpkin spice lattes with the girls or visiting a pumpkin patch with your significant other, this season calls for comfortable basics that you can kick back and chill in – and for that we think plaid is a winner!
Plaid is one enduring trend that’s been back on our radars for a couple of years now. The revival of the 90’s grunge look shows little sign of stopping and we’re loving our new, laid back checkered shirts and sweatshirts that help you embrace the look, without being too fashion victim-y!
Take for example this colorful red, white and blue check shirt, which also comes in a more muted pale orange color-way. We love its relaxed style that is just perfect if you don’t want the look to be too 90’s or punky. Wear open with a classic while t-shirt underneath, like our model, or button up and let your checks do the talking.
If you DO want to embrace the grunge look, why not try teaming a cute pair of plaid shorts with some chunky boots? Make the look season (and period) appropriate by adding a pair of thick black pantyhose then finish off with a retro band tour t-shirt – the older and more lived in the better!
Maybe you want to embrace the plaid trend but are more a fan of classic checks? If so, and if you also want to stay warm but are not quite ready to break your big winter coat out from the back of the closet, the answer could be our traditional checkered cape style poncho. Ponchos are an easy-to-wear fall and winter solution that are flattering and suit all shapes and sizes and our cozy polo neck version comes in a choice of red, black, beige or blue.
So which color will you choose?!
