Out on the street, show goers for both the Spring 2018 and Fall 2019 collections embraced checked pieces. From the classic blazer, slightly oversized to suit the current climate, to grunge-era multicolor button-downs and even a skirt/pant hybrid, they certainly checked all the boxes.
Plaid or Checks is everywhere this time of year. After all, nothing feels more Christmasy than a red and gray plaid jacket. But we prefer to broaden our horizons a bit. Thankfully, the fall collections agreed, offering up plenty of checks to balance out our winter wardrobes.
The great thing about checks is they feel fresh no matter the season (so they will still work in your wardrobe come spring). Check out our favorite checks and plaids below.
2018 saw many-a fashion trends come and go, with some we skipped out on, some we invested in, and some we wish we hadn’t. But before you toss the pieces you swear you’ll never wear again, we’re giving them one more chance. Because if there’s anything this new season truly brings, it’s a fresh perspective — and it turns out that so 2019 checked blazer or puffer coat might still have some life in it.
Since we can newly see the shine poke through the winter clouds, it is almost blasphemy to speak of the fall 2019 fashion trends once again. However, with so many incredible styles to choose from and our preference for an early shopping spree in getting our wardrobes ready,
the latest runway shows have served as absolute motivation. So many recurring trends as well as a few newcomers that are simply delectable! It is hard not to fall in love with each all over again.
So while the outfits ahead are offering up new inspiration for the year ahead, they’re also showing you it is possible to get a little more creative with the items you already own.
Remember: some trends are worth buying, and some are worth reinventing. And we can’t think of a better resolution than creating the perfect balance of the two.
