In a magnificent heritage/grunge style mashup (equal parts Cher Horowitz, Kurt Cobain and No Doubt-era Gwen Stefani), designers have delivered on all of our ’90s fashion dreams this season, sprinkling plaid throughout the FW18 collections. Whether you prefer wearing it head to toe via oversized co-ordinated suiting or dipping your toe into the trend with one single statement piece, you can take your pick from a gamut of plaid-loving brands from Versace and Balenciaga to Acne Studios and Burberry (whose signature print is an easy but ultra-stylish route to nailing this look).
The way to wear it now? Layer your plaid pieces over floral, polka-dot or graphic prints and team with ’90s-inflected accessories – think bucket hats and cross-body belt bags – for a mismatched look that ticks all of the boxes.
