For the past few weeks I have been discussing how to incorporate some of the Fall 2018 trends into your look now and we continue that theme this week with Retro Graphics and Plaid.
Retro Graphics and Plaids are two of the heavy hitter trends for Fall 2018 and they make a perfect mash-up.
Pattern mixing is one of my favorite styling tricks. It gives a look life, a fresh perspective and a unique visual lure.
The Fall 2018 checks and plaids are all about a fresh new approach to nostalgia by wearing retro plaid in unexpected ways. Think pops of plaid peeking between pleats and beneath long layers, 90’s era grunge plaid paired with soft feminine pieces and of course the ultimate 90’s tribute the iconic yellow/black plaid a la Cher Horowitz from Clueless.
The first thing I think of to describe the Retro Graphics Trend is “Saved by The Bell”. It’s like those crazy colorful geometric patterns you would see dance around the screen in the opening sequence to the show as the theme song played. A very Keith Haring meets Marc Jacobs kind of graphic.
These creative geometric motifs a la the 1990’s play really well when partnered with plaid. Think of it as the fall version of stripes and florals.
Whether you go full-trend or just a splash, pair them or wear them completely separate make sure to incorporate some Retro Graphics and Plaid into your look this Fall.
Stylist Tip: A retro graphic tee under a plaid blazer is a fun and super easy way to spice up a business casual look.

I’m loving this retro look on you. The blazer and top knot with hair tie are on point.
Awe thanks babe!
I love the blazer, the patterns look cool and I love how it fits in every occasion with the ability to stand out at the same time. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
You pull off this retro style very well! I can’t wait for fall boots here I come!
Awe thanks! Yes me too give me all the layers please!
What gorgeous pictures! How do you know which styles will pair well together? I wouldn’t think to pair a retro top like that with the plaid blazer, but it looks great!
It’s all about experimenting! Stay in a similar color palette and use 1 piece as a neutral to quiet things down! Give it a try!
Love this look on you! You always pull off the best looks! So Fun!
Awe thanks so much!
This is a great look! I will have to check out the blazer! It would be a great addition to the work wardrobe. Thanks for sharing…i’m not too keen on shopping so I love when I can have someone refer a great outfit! Thanks!
Thanks so much! The blazer is vintage but I linked to a few similar ones at the bottom of the post!
That patterned jacket looks great on you. I’m not usually a fan of mixing patterns but the combination you put together works well.

Plaid, I can do. I’m not cool enough to wear retro print outside of my home. Lol!
