It seems as if everyone’s in plaid for autumn 2014. Or is it check? Strictly speaking, plaid is just another word for tartan, but we’re suggesting that nowadays, it’s open to interpretation. Its patterns are more complicated than check, which is basically squares, but both lend themselves to similar styles. Does it matter?
We don’t think it does, unless you belong to a Scottish clan, and are entitled to wear the real thing, a beautiful tartan. For the rest of us, plaid and check give us ample choice of colors, patterns, fabrics and styles. It’s not just lovers of grunge that are rocking flannel shirts at the moment – everyone is throwing them over ripped jeans, or tying them around their waists. Wear large checks or a bold plaid with a slogan tee peeking through, or layer over a flimsy dress for a contrast in textures. They’re just great for outdoor wear, as any lumber jack will confirm, so add a beanie, and you’re sorted for autumn. Cover with an oversized sweater or biker jacket for extra warmth.
You won’t go far wrong if you follow Taylor Swift’s sleek, tailored version tucked into slim pants. Alternatively, team with denim shorts, or top a plaid skater skirt with a lace blouse for a vintage look. Put a suede or leather jacket, real or faux, over a long-sleeved checked dress, and add black tights and booties. Wear a man’s shirt as a dress, or leave him to add it to a pair of skinny jeans of his own. Button up, and accentuate your waist with a belt.
And I’d love to show some pics reviews in Sheidise, this black and white belt coat is very chic and it is also the hot sale product in this winter.
