When the fall/winter fashion season rolls around, it can be difficult for those of us living a little closer to the equator to try the heavy fabrics, deep colors, and luxe layers the new season is offering. But when trendsetting model Bella Hadid stepped out in Paris in a portfolio of looks that were not only sartorially one step ahead but totally wearable in the Middle East, we compiled that “trends to buy” Pinterest board, stat.
It’s no secret that prints were huge on the Fall/Winter 2017 runways, but there is one pattern in particular that the youngest Hadid sister seems to favor: checks. Once a print synonymous with grunge bands and the sulky teenage sitcoms of the 90s (all the My So Called Life fans, get excited), the classic plaid pattern has taken on new forms for 2017. From plastic-covered, gray plaid coats at Calvin Klein to red-and-green tartan blazers at Victoria Beckham, the throwback fabric is no longer just for dressed-down days but a first choice for glam times too.
Savoir Flair predicts you’ll see a lot more of tartans, checks, and plaids in the coming months. If you want to stay ahead of the curve, browse Bella Hadid’s latest checkered looks and shop similar pieces in the gallery below to incorporate into your summer wardrobe.
