Plaid-itudes

When it comes to everyday dressing, nothing beats jeans and a plaid shirt. Transition wear at its finest, Frank & Eileen’s lightweight linen shirt takes the stress out of seasonal dressing. Pair with Frame’s mini bootcut jeans for a duo that is as simple as it is stylish.

Designers return to the classic time and time again for its endless possibilities. At Chanel and Versace, bright iterations put a contemporary spin on iconic schoolgirl patterns (calling Cher Horowitz!), while Rokh explored wide windowpane checks. Louis Vuitton sprayed sequins across open weave tweeds and Dior explored luxe iterations of printed outerwear. 

This season, put a fresh spin on warm winter layers with a printed coat. Apiece Apart’s beautifully tailored version with an exaggerated collar is a quiet nod to the plaid trend. At BA&SH, the bastion of French girl chic, a boxy belted jacket shot with bold colours is polished and powerful. 


The shacket continues to reign supreme, and Rails’ oversize squares make it a standout. Smythe, who masterfully makes must-have checks every season, fearlessly pairs fuzzy fun fur with oversize lines and dazzles with vibrant hues – wallflowers need not apply! 

Not immune to the pattern, workwear gets the plaid treatment too. Circolo 1901 brings glen plaid, a traditional menswear staple, into firm feminine territory. Nipped waist jackets and straight-cut pants (all the better for showing off sensational footwear) bring a newfound sense of style to the office. 


Max Mara can always be counted on for forever classics, and this season’s plaid blazer hits the mark. Not to be missed is Smythe’s mulberry 3-piece set. The vest, a major runway trend, takes centerstage when done up in a notice-me-now print.
