1970s Plaid Prints Are Officially Cool Again

If you’re looking for a time travel back to the 1970s, this season may offer the perfect opportunity. On the Fall 2017 catwalks, plaid patterns inspired by the decade of disco have officially made an entrance. For anyone wondering how to embrace retro style plaid, here’s how to master the trend right now.

Jenny Packham

On the runway at Jenny Packham, an ornate, floor-length frock stole the spotlight. Emblazoned with a light blue and yellow plaid print, the short-sleeved evening gown was a beautiful sight. With its voluminous hemline and V-neckline, the dress looked surprisingly sweet and girlish. Meanwhile, the plaid pattern kept the overall design looking low key, versatile and down-to-earth.

Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta turned to mustard tones and shades of orange, which perfectly suited the season of Fall 2017. Rustic autumnal plaid created a sensation in the form of a double-breasted coat, which was paired with polka dot tights. For a finishing touch, a textured chain handbag and burgundy leather ankle boots completed the ensemble.

Stella McCartney

If you’re wondering how to rock plaid for the workday, look no further than Stella McCartney. This schoolgirl style blue and brown plaid sheath dress was styled with oversized long sleeves. Meanwhile, funky metallic grey shoes brought a cool finish to an outfit that works for either work or play.
