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.
