How’s your week going so far? It’s almost time for Thanksgiving, can you believe it? I’m getting ready to get all the ingredients tonight for cooking up a Thanksgiving dinner feast for 15~ Yay!
So, about the plaid trend. I thought I’d take you to work with me today. I was working on plaid designs for a project and thought I’d share some of the swatches with you, since we’re on such a plaid kick over here at carlytati.com. Remember this look from Moschino worn by Hanne Gaby Odiele?
There’s a lot of inspiration in the photo. Love how they updated a plaid suit with the collegiate patches. The plaid matching from head to toe is very cool. Have you worn matching plaids yet?
I liked the idea of creating plaids in color combos other than red. Red is so eye catching and makes it’s own statement, but it’s nice to see some other options like mixing winter white with black for a more graphic look, or trying some blues. For a more weekendy look, working with neutrals and browns.
Blanket plaids have been all over and will continue into next winter. The plaid trend has been around for a long time, it just makes it’s way back from season to season! Let’s take a look at some cool vintage plaids from around the internet:
Of course, the photos are all kind of grainy since they go all the way back to the 40’s and 50’s but you can see how super chic these girls were back then. Don’t you just want to step into those vintage editorials? Especially the last one, with the blue plaid suit shot in 1957. She looks like she’s having so much fun~~
The first photographs are vintage Chanel shot in 1965.
How have you been wearing the plaid trend this winter? Tweet me a photo!
