Most often associated with Scotland and the Scottish kilt, this traditional print is experiencing a revival at Paris Fashion Week. From runway to streetstyle, we break down the numerous ways this classic print has reemerged.
On the runway
The trend first appeared on the New York Fashion Week runways when names such as Calvin Klein and Coach sent down models clad in full-on plaid looks.
In Paris, designers showed easy plaid separates like a see-through plaid sweater at Esteban Cortazar and pink plaid pants at Hermes, while the head-to-toe plaid trend continued on at Sacai and Veronique Branquinho.
On the street
Streetstyle stars tackled the full-on plaid trend with the plaid suit – with standout bags to boot.
A hint of plaid, such as with a pair of plaid pants, is an easy way to incorporate the pattern into any outfit.
For a fail-safe plaid item, a classic plaid coat or blazer in more neutral shades like white and grey is a great addition to the wardrobe.
