Hello, my friends!. Plaid comes back each fall with new colors and new styles. And This fall season is no different. In fact, Plaid showed up early in fashion week; skirts, shorts, blazers, accessories. You name it, Plaid is on it. Though plaid is considered the “trend”. It is more “classic” than a “trend”. I bet you to go look in your closet and not find a plaid fall garment in it. Today, I will be taking a twist to plaid trend fall 2018.
While I love trends and I love keeping up with it. I found out I have to tweak and play with what I have and give it its own identity while still considered fashionable.
A twist to plaid trend fall 2018- garment piece
I took a Europe road trip early August. On the way back before stopping in Grenoble, France, I stopped by a mall to shop for warmer clothes ( fall clothes) since thieves broke in and stole our belonging at the first of our trip. Hence, I needed fall clothes for both the cold weather in Grenoble and the fact that I got cold on the way back. Unfortunately, The fall trend did not come in full force in the shops I went to. To such a degree, I had to dig in to find a twist to plaid trend fall 2018. And boy!. I am so happy I picked shorts that are a twist to plaid trend fall 2018.
Shorts- a twist to plaid trend fall 2018

The shorts have unique colors and several designs which keep it trendy yet timeless. Besides, They have warm fall look thanks to the material used in it. Because of the colors choices, it gives you that 80’s vibe which is fall 2018 theme. It can also be worn in spring. That is a score!. A timeless piece!. If you know me, you know I love a timeless piece. Finally, I can give it the love it deserves before it wears out and I recycle it.
Since these shorts are multicolored, They would pair well with pink, white, nude and even dark colors like dark brown. I Paired them with a nude sweater and cardigan and it felt great. Then, I had a pink scarf. I put it on my neck to keep me warm. I would have wished to have a different toned down scarf to compliment the look. However, I only had the pink scarf and I had to wear it since the cold in Grenoble got the best of me leaving me with a sore throat and a runny nose. For add of femininity, I added my knee high gold sandals. The outcome is a well put together outfit while being trendy.
Print design/ Style
These shorts have neither plaid, stripe, nor chevron print design. They are more geometric by mixing all these prints. It gives that unique touch. I know The Bermuda style is very comfortable to be worn for long hours in the car. Furthermore, It is high waisted shorts with side zip closure. Comfort is key in here :).
These bold fashion statement shorts will be cute dress up or down. I would only suggest to give it the perfect balance by pairing with colors that compliment the shorts. I, for instance, I will pair it with complimentary colors inspired from the colors on these shorts such as brown, pink, nude or white. That way I don’t go overboard with the look. I would suggest doing the same if you have similar shorts.
Since the store is in France, I could not find the exact shorts in the USA. Thus, I picked up a few of my favorite shorts for you to check :
–Zara chain shorts. Chain shorts are fun to wear and to style. They have an edgy look to them. You can wear them up or down.
–Express chevron. These are pull-on shorts- with chevron style. They are perfect with tight and black blazer along with high heel boots or booties.
–Asos boucle shorts– the shorts have a vibrant blue color. They are plaid but the fun color choice adds an unusual look to the casual plaid.
All these shorts are a twist and a break from the plaid fall trend. Nonetheless, There is no doubt that you can add your plaid blazer, top or even accessories to any of these shorts. There will be nothing planar-or remotely plain about it, which will turn heads. Plus with a timeless piece, you can add your creativity and imagination to create a bold fashion statement look.
