It seems that the designers always found plenty ways to reimagine one of the most widespread and recognizable pattern designs, the plaids. This season was no exception. Whether it was through adding embroideries and beads to create visual enchantments, playing with fabric overlays to produce 3-dimensional effects, or experimenting with bold stylings and unexpected color combinations, the design teams behind brands from Calvin Klein to Jeremy Scott managed to find the dynamic ways to express their seasonal stories through this classic.

Casual Fridays

 

When it comes to casual dressing, it really didn't matter whether it was the exaggerated tartan plaid, distressed windowpane, oversized checker or classic glen plaid. From wild-leg cuffed pants, matching 2-piece ensemble, to the off-shoulder zip-front soft bomber jacket, the designers stripped away the rebellious nature of plaids and opt for a more relaxed attitude.
