It might be 20 years since plaid – or tartan (it’s basically the same thing ie. multi-coloured woven checked fabric) – was at its peak but this fun checked fabric is back on trend again thanks to the current craze for 90s trends, and it was all over the runways at Vetements’ and Jacquemus’ for Autumn Winter 2016.
In the 80s and 90s plaid was more of an edgy addition to your outfit – think punk tartan trousers or grunge flannel shirts – but now the print has been polished and is a bit more ladylike making it perfect to add to your work wardrobe.
