Mad For Plaid
…..Is what apparently all of you are, because it looks as though the Zara plaid pants will be the Trend Tuesday of the month. Thanks to all who voted and believe me, I was on team glitter slippers, too. But I never walk away from a challenge, I just complain about it while doing it. What I will say is Amy and I went to Zara last night to pick up the pants and let’s just say … they’re a bit different than advertised. You’ll see what I mean next week (and it will be kind of hard not to notice).
As I mentioned when introducing the trends for the month, the punk look is HUGE for fall, and plaid is the star of the show. When we were in Zara, for example, there were plaid items of all kinds; scarves, shirts, jackets, pants, dresses, you name it. Zara is always known for following the runways closely, and it appears they had their eyes firmly set on the Celine F/W 13 catwalk.
I’ve discussed my love of Celine (and Phoebe Philo, for that matter), so it’s no surprise that the fashion world took this and went with it. Red plaid is EVERYWHERE. Thanks to a ton of punk looks that went down the runway six months ago, stores everywhere are carrying some red plaid looks (should I do a head-to-toe look?)
Don’t believe me? Check out just some of the products you can find in stores:
So get ready guys, you’re going to be seeing a whole lot of plaid and a whole lot of me for the next few weeks!
