Tartan – Plaid – Checks – Whatever you want to call it, is totally on-trend. This season brings bright & colourful interpretations from classic to grunge adaptation with endless styling choices.
Plaid is a popular, recognized pattern around the globe that associates usually with the colder months. 4D has sourced beautiful plaid from Europe & USA, so many pieces perfect for this winter season.
You might be thinking... Ugh, so old school?! Do not fret. Traditional checked prints are moving away for that ‘classic’ tartan to a more ‘modern appeal’
Check out the Mustard Tartan Shirt by Hayden LA (USA) The blue/yellow tones make this plaid shirt fresh…. Looks great with denim!
We LOVE the ‘grunge goddess’ look. That’s Plaid & Pleather. We believe every girl should have a good pair of pleather leggings in their wardrobe. A quality faux leather will really elevate your outfit from a basic to an 11/10 outfit.
We love the Faux Leather Leggings by Indian Blue (Netherlands) Super cute – they are comfy & sophisticated.
Another wardrobe necessity is the classic plaid button-down shirt. You have choice with Finger in the nose (France) The flannel shirt is available in green or red plaid and is made from 100% beautiful cotton, making it super warm. The edgy French shirts are great for layering – looks great with a big fur vest, otherwise create contrast with fun accessories.
If you feel the cold, the Red Check Knit is the perfect sweater for you! The gorgeous black & red plain will keep you warm. Looks amazing with pleather – the pleather skater skirt by Indian Blue (Netherlands) is a standout!
If you love the school girl look, the trouble overall dress is for you!! The plaid tunic looks great over a white basic tee. It can be worn preppy or edgy – jacket & footwear can determine this look. Add a fedora or panama felt hat to complete your look.
Venture outside the box this season – experiment with plaid & pleather!
