Ok, so I know it’s probably hard to start even thinking about Fall. I mean, really, in some parts we’re still in Fall(ish) mode…rain, rain, go away!!! Regardless, it’s not called “trend forcasting” for nothing. Sooooooo, let’s look ahead, once again, to Fall and what to keep an eye out for. Side note: The beauty of buying second-hand is you can be building your seasonal wardrobes all year round, no need to wait for the new collection to hit the stores, win-win!
Back to the topic at hand. I have always loved the fashion magazines “Mad for Plaid” editorials in the 80’s/90’s…and almost every season there after. Plaid is Fall. Unless done in pastel madras cotton, then we’ve got a whole other trend entirely. It’s always “there” but in certain doses. This Fall ’10 it hits hard and big. Big plaid, large over-sized plaid and quirky combinations of mixed and matched sizes and colors…which speaks to me in a major way. Let plaid be your calling card for Fall…let old man winter know you have arrived.
