Mad for Plaid

It always amazes me how designers along with trend forecasting agencies predict trends 6 months in advanced. How do they know!? is always my question. Being a fashion school graduate, I know the answer partially to that question though!. Trend forecasting agencies draw inspiration from many places, objects, things, past decades and current world events. For the most part, trends that we see on runway shows do hit the mainstream market for mass production. Others, like couture and high end over the top Alexander McQueen ish, don’t really get to appeal to the masses as often. As seen on Fall 2013 fashion runway shows (meaning exactly about 6 months ago – because Spring 2014 Fashion Week shows are soon approaching) plaid, checks and tartan were seen in Dolce & Gabbana,  Alice & Olivia, Valentino, and 3.1 Philip Lim to name a few. So (in simple terms) last year, these designers predicted that NOW for Fall 2013 plaids were most likely going to be “in” and my judgment is that they ARE! Plaids have made a comeback. I went shopping this past weekend and saw plaid/check print in pants, tops, skirts, dresses and sneakers in literally every store. When I think of plaid I think of preppy and the all american school girl/boy. And Mean Girls! of course. Today, I wanted to be comfy and this is what I went for. PS. I haven’t worn these chucks in so long! 

Happy Monday! (Eventhough they suck >_<)
