Plaid fabrics

Baby, plaid, tartan, sailors, houndstooth...

and pictures of all colors. You can find plaid patterns to make dresses with a childish or naive air and plaid patterns to make more serious and elegant garments.

The check print never goes out of fashion. In winter it is widely used in suits, shirts... in work environments. We can also see it in school uniforms for boys and girls. And in summer we see plaid in more vivid colors for example in plaid dresses.

This season the star of the season has been the houndstooth check. We have seen fabrics with houndstooth checks everywhere: on the catwalks, in low cost stores, in magazines and fashion blogs... It is a very typical print for cold weather, autumn and winter. It also brings a touch of seriousness and professionalism, so it is very appropriate to use it to go to work. We have seen houndstooth checks on trousers, jackets, suits, coats, skirts, shirts and even accessories.

For the summer, any kind of simple colorful plaid looks good. You can make plaid dresses as well as tops or shorts. It's a safe bet that never fails.

Plaid fabrics have been out of fashion for a few seasons now, but they can make a comeback at any time. These prints take us back to our school days, to our pinafores or our little plaid skirts. What memories! They are prints that bring an air of seriousness. They usually have dark tones. They can be appropriate to go to work, but not for any party or celebration, nor for summer or for anything cheerful. The truth is that they are a print that we would leave in the closet forever. But for tastes, colors...

The ones that are really trendy, and have been for a few seasons now, are the plaid shirts. Well, we are referring in particular to plaid shirts for women, since plaid shirts for men are always in fashion, they are a basic. Well, continuing with women's shirts, I don't know if you have noticed that the less feminine, the better (it's fashion, not our taste). Well yes, now the more we look like lumberjacks, it seems that we will be more fashionable. And the fact is that women's shirts are not fitted and also with checkered prints, lumberjack type, in red, blue and green tones... Well, we have to admit, that although this fashion was not very funny to us, there are women who wear it with style.
