I love the pattern of plaid. Nothing says ‘smart casual’ like wearing a plaid skirt or jacket. It is a very popular trend this year and I thought that it would be appropriate to introduce on my blog right after the New Year. This is because the plaid pattern would make an excellent addition to your 2018 wardrobe right now! Whether you wear a jacket or skirt or something else altogether, you will look on point.
There are ways to wear plaid without looking dated. For example, plaid blazers were a street style favorite at NYFW in September making them relevant and, most definitely, not dated. On the runway, designers such as Hermès, Balenciaga, Thom Browne, and Marni showed plenty of plaid cemented its status as a fixture in the 2018 sartorial landscape.
Below are some examples of on trend plaid jackets and skirts.
