Fall Trend 2018 :: Tartan’s Lookbook

440 440 Velvet

One of the ever trending patterns is tartan. At times its popularity is greater than others and this fall is such a time. Tartan prints, plaids and checks will be found everywhere from fashion apparel to home decor. They will join their forces with denims, and a faux fur to create patchworks. Solid colors, tartan layers and textures will be create an interesting collage of juxtapositions, western re-interpretations, and Celtic romance. Loose figure fits will create a more casual vibe while tartan blanket scarves promise to keep us warm this winter. Therefore, I think it’s time to have a peak at this Fall’s Tartan Lookbook for more inspiration with the most wearable ways to wear tartan prints this winter.

Designers and brands have included tartans and plaids in their collections making it a must have for the fashion conscious. It is a classic winner print with many variations to suit everyone. For yet another season, mixing patterns and textures is the “it” thing to do. But what makes the difference is the approach – the attitude. How you go about it… The aim is to deconstruct (in a constructive way)!! Ochre yellow, greens and crimsons tops or coats are the solids to help you do just that. Fluffs, oversized stripes and mismatching patterns combined with denims for balance is another step in the right direction.

Obviously it’s been always fine to wearing matching plaids like a blazer with pants or skirt. It makes a great work-wear uniform. However, it’s also fine to mix tartans, with plaids and checks for a more edgy look that will make heads turn, as long as you use some solid colors to bring a sense of balance.
