Check It Out: Plaid Is The Biggest Trend Of The Season

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks, then you would have no doubt noticed the arrival of one of this season's biggest trends: plaid. It’s no secret that checks, plaids and even ginghams have dominated the runways for the past few seasons, with the classic monochrome gingham storming our favourite high street stores last season and check shirts – well, they’ve been around for donkeys years, but there’s a new print in town and it goes by the name of ‘plaid’. A little more intricate than check print, but not quite tartan print, the plaid print sits comfortably in between the two prints and there’s certainly no need to panic, because thankfully the plaid print is one of the easiest to rock this autumn, thanks to its monochrome focus. Our high street stores have suddenly become awash with everything plaid print, from scarves to blazers to tailored trousers and beyond and it’s been spotted on the backs of some of the biggest influencers and fashion bloggers out there, so it's fair to say that it doesn't look like this print is going anywhere anytime soon, so you better get used to the sight of it! 

The beauty of the plaid print, is that it has the power to transform even the simplest of outfits and have you leading in the style stakes this season, with very little effort. Whether you’re opting for an office-approved suit, a classic mini skirt perfect for teaming with a chunky knit, or are simply wanting to liven up your accessories this season, then look further than the plaid print. Power suits in neutral grey plaid print are an absolute style winner when teamed with a simple tee in black or white underneath and a pair of brogues or classic court heels on your feet. An A-line, mini or midi skirt in plaid print is the perfect autumn essential to transform your everyday wardrobe, when teamed with over-the-knee boots and a roll neck jumper, and if you don’t fancy stepping out in head-to-toe plaid just yet, then gradually incorporate plaid print into your autumn wardrobe with a little help from our accessories department. A plaid scarf will be your ultimate accessory staple this season and is a great way to ease your way into the biggest trend this season.  

Plaid can be easily and effortlessly incorporated into the most basic of wardrobes and is complimented greatly by a monochrome palette of grey, white and black hues, so don’t be put off by the plaid print this season and experiment with the new print on the block this Autumn.
