From last Fall runway, one trend stood out the most: Tartan, plaid or check. Not usually our favorite fabric pattern but it seems to revive itself every four years or so. After all, new fashion trends always seem to be reinvention of old ones. This pattern that first appeared in the 1500s in Scotland and has given birth to plaid and checks is a total preppy must have. From Legally Blonde to Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen runways, it seems that Tartan, plaid and check emerged again and are a must have for SS18.
Christopher Kane, Burberry, Fendi, Hermes, Marni, Prabal Gurung, Public School, Carven, Ralph Lauren and Balenciaga have all presented the pattern for SS18
Preppy look but trendy vibe. We have compiled a must have list of curated and revamped pieces that will quench next season Tartan thirst the Preppy Trendy way.
I have personally rocked this print for years. For my first photo shoot as a freelance stylist I used a tartan dress that I designed and made about twelve years ago.
