There are so many plaid skirts you can try this year, and the great news is that plaids come in different faces. This print is still strong and makes women look fresh and youthful. Maybe fashion is a cyclic bitch, but plaids are timeless and I can’t remember a year when I haven’t seen it on the streets. What do you think? Anyway, let’s take a deep breath and see what plaid skirts you can give a try by creating fabulous street outfits.
I told you about the cyclic path of fashion and I am pretty sure there is no problem in mixing today’s trends with those 1960’s, 1970’s and 1990’s essentials. All these decades have one thing in common, yes, I mean checkered skirt. Call it plaids, checks, tartan, but all these prints have one thing in common and it’s the pattern. The sixties come with little plaids, high boots or Oxford shoes and sexy knee socks that reminds me of retro French chic style, while seventies is all about A-line or pencil skirts that are complemented with high tube boots and the eighties, the nineties is all about school girl look featuring mini skirts and crop sweaters completed with combat boots.
So, what do we have in 2018? Basically, it’s all about mixing and matching different decades with our beloved plaids. In other words saying, it’s about how we wear it, not what we wear. You should experiment, try some daring and versatile looks. So, I came up with four different looks you might want to try this year.
The first one I call a sweet schoolgirl with attitude. She’s naughty, free, and somewhat preppy. Just opt for a bit longer skirt that is mini, but no from a kind of adult movies. This skirt can ideally work with varsity jackets, pullovers, blouses, kicks and ankle boots. If you are more into elegant style, then go for a preppy look. It has to be toned down and little bit and work appropriate. Think of a knee-length style and dressy top. Complete it with a fitted blazer, comfy shoes and classic bag. Go for a grunge style if you want to underline your sophistication. I recommend trying dark lips, knee-length socks, chunky shoes and messy hair… don’t forget about an edgy leather jacket and ripped top. The last but not least is an office look that is fun, ladylike and easy to combo with all your favorite and boring work style tops and blazers. I would recommend a pencil style plaid skirt by teaming it with classy blazer and blouse.
