When it comes to polka dots outfits I’m what you call a converted fashion lover. I did not like them one bit. But that was a long time ago, when the reason behind my dislike was that they looked too girlish and too retro, none of which I was a fan of. Fast forward a few years, and here I am sitting in front of a laptop, dressed in a black and white polka dot wrap dress, that I love beyond words.

So… what is up with polka dots trend in 2018? Are they any different from 2 years ago, or even from way back when I was not a huge fan of them? While the poor suckers have stayed the same (big, small, red, white, black, blue, printed on dresses, tops, shorts, pants of any and all colours)… the way we wear them and style this trend is a bit different these days. Hence my change of heart perhaps.

Polka dots are a bit more polished in 2018, and look amazing in black or white. Or they’re very funky in electric blue or bright pink. Then they can be sexy as hell with a dash of retro when in red. I mean… they’re literally giving me life. From bold polka dots tops paired with jeans, to the classic black dress with white polka dots that looks amazing whether you’re out on a date or shopping on a summer day… I am sold on this trend.

Did I say I love polka dots?

How to wear polka dots in 2018?

One word: effortless. Dom’t try so much. Wear that polka dot top with jeans and a pair of slides. Rock that polka dot dress with non-statement shoes and a messy bun. It’s like that you know. Actually it’s a million ways and it all depends on personal style, but personally I do like 5 very specific polka dot looks, that tbh are all over Instagram these days, surrounded by either flowers, city scapes, beaches, drinks… cool slides, and straw bags.

Who can blame people you know. Any polka dot outfit courtesy of 2018 looks kinda bomb in pics. And IRL of course, but considering the title and all…

1.Black and white polka dots outfits.

Did anyone say sophisticated and chic to the next level?! This is it. Whether it’s a classic polka dot dress (wrap midi or mini styles look best), or a cool top, or a pair off slides… this particular polka dot style is the classic one. It’s retro, it’s timeless, it’s classy, and very very very chic.

Best tip: for extra oomph wear red lips and black sunglasses.

2. White and black polka dot looks.

It’s basically the same thing only it’s not. It’s the other way around than the above and it’s a very summery look. Very feminine, dainty, romantic and looks incredible with layered dainty necklaces and denim.

3. Retro chic polka dots.

They’re having a moment y’all. In palazzo pants, or big sleeve tops, or maxi dresses, this version of polka dots is a more trendy style with a big bold dash of retro vibe. They’re white, blue, yellow, brown, and usually all over some retro tops, or flirty summer dress worn with boots.

4. Blue polka dots.

My mom once told me that blue, actually navy, is one of the most elegant colours ever. Huh! Go figure. And i agree. I mean just look at the blue polka dot thing and you’ll see what I’m saying. Polka dots are more laid back girly, not-so-serious, not-evening appropriate so to say. Well… do them in blue, and shades of blue and think agin. This style look very elegant in a very cool way. No efforts, just simple and pretty.

5. Red polka dots.

Shut the front door. This is my #1 favourite and it’s also one of instagram’s most shared and coveted looks. It just looks so good. It’s retro hot, modern, feminine, chic, summer’ish. The best look is a red polka dot mini wrap dress for the weekend/beach.

It feels like it was only last Tuesday that we were wearing what we were saying: professing our weekend love, our hate for Mondays, our lust for coffee and so on. I mean how many ‘I need coffee’ t-shirts can one person wear? It was fun for a while. Up until we were all looking *and saying the same things. Like everything about us and around us became a t-shirt meme. Fast forward a few years… and we’re in the same freaking boat. Only cooler and more expensive this time. And more pretentious. Slightly more sophisticated too. I am of course talking about the designer logo trend mania that’s splashed and splattered everywhere these days.

Especially on the backs of the rich and famous. Alongside the instafamous.

Every cool and fashion relevant soul is wearing some sort of designer logo, whether it’s that Gucci t-shirt, or the Fila, Puma, Yeezy sportswear, or some D&G belt, some Supreme socks, some Balenciaga sneakers… you get it. We’re walking billboards for designers these days, and we seem to be loving it, as we pile up on designer logo stuff, and keep buying them from either online fashion hubs like SSENSE, or from your classic high street stores.

Are we loving it so much though that we have to wear it? Or are we slightly snobbish? Or do we genuinely happen to like some items which happen to have some very famous logos on them.

It was only yesterday that it was un-cool to show off and brag about stuff, right? Now we’re screaming for attention in our big bold Versace logo t-shirts, Levis jeans, and D&G belts. Isn’t it too much?

Okay… okay… I get it, too many questions.

Wearing designer LOGOS in 2018

The truth is… we’re currently at the dawn of minimalism so this may just be a last cry from fashion opulence for a while, OR this may be just the amount of fashion statement we need to spice up our boring, I mean minimalist outfits.

Think about it: a classic all black outfit is anything but boring with a display of the new Balenciaga logo popping up somewhere in your minimalist look. It keeps the whole thing still so chic and fashionably quiet… but it adds… character, and a tad of sartorial smirk if you will for both the fashion savvy and the ignoramuses.

 

If quiet ain’t your shtick… then do a full on Rihanna and drape yourself in designer logos just for the fun of it, or for the love of those clothes AND their logos. Think street style at Fashion Week: louder, bolder, more colourful and not shy from a total designer show-off.

Or… you might just be a simple mortal who occasionally and casually works out… or just chills in gym clothes. Then, my friend… whether you like it or not you will be doing the designer logo trend, because no gym clothes and athleisure is free of logos these days. Personally I don’t mind it, in fact I think it has a bit of 80s nostalgia to it.

Is there an age limit to this designer logo trend mania?

Helllllll no. (*sits down to actually think about it.)

*thinks about it.

Hell no.

However, since age usually comes with some boring baggage like jobs, responsibilities, social conduct, et all… I think the designer logo trend is totally do-able if kept simple and classic. Just do the damn D&G belt without the 2,345 other logos. Wear a Dior logo blazer for work or dinner and you’ll still be killing it in both career as well and fashion.

If you’re slowly pushing 100, but you looooooove fashion and clothes and colours and prints and trends and styles and fads and hats and accessories and everything in between all these… and you HAVE TO WEAR them all at once, or else… then just do it what can I say. #nike

Nonetheless, the more I pile up on years the more I feel I’m leaning towards less is more in fashion. I love a classic minimal style these days, or a classic jeans look, or a summer classic wrap dress. Sure I might style it edgier one day, sporty, chic, elegant, or casual the next… but you get it.

*

Therefore the designer logo trend pour moi… is a total yes as a one or two statement pieces, as gym wear, and on some days as a fashion victim’s logo dream. #stillindecisiveaf #facepalm

Your turn now.

Bye.

Just a second ago I was thinking – were I not pregnant right now – what would I wear? An d’you know what I miss most besides proper jeans and maybe a crop top? A pair of great CULOTTES. It’s wild really how my fashion cravings go… just like food cravings tbh, cause you’d think you’d crave what you love most (like pizza, or salty chips, or hoops, floral dresses, stilettos par example)… but nope. You actually crave the craziest things in the world.

Culottes. Really. Like the only time I ever wore them was only as a second choice. A style backup. I LOOOOVE them on others, and I always lusted for a great pair that would look as great on me as they did on those beautiful fashion bloggers. But then… I never really did find that pair. Never really searched for it either.

Bottom line is pregnancy is giving me wild wild wild cravings. Apparently of the fashion kind too.

So what do you do when you find yourself mid-day craving culottes? Well… you wonder whether or not they’re still in fashion 2018. Are they?

Can we still wear culottes this summer AND look great?

I only realise now… what a stupid question I’m asking.

Never mind.

*raises hand and asks the Q again*

 

Are culottes still in fashion 2018?

Would it make any difference if they weren’t? But they are!!!!!!!! *throws confetti around*

I think it’s been a while since they’ve traded their trendiness for their staple worthiness. And hallelujah that they did, because they do make one hell of a pants style: versatile, cool, sophisticated, minimal, grown-up, granny chic, just chic, elegant, simple, classy, boho…

Perhaps the way to wear them in 2018 is slightly different, or perhaps their styles are different. However it may be I do think ANY culottes style works just fine as long as the personal style is great. You see… I’m an old school soul, so I still buy that it’s-not-what-you-wear-but-how-you-wear-it-crap.

Or maybe I’m just old.

And maybe that’s precisely why I’m craving culottes. The grown-up version of shorts, you know.

Whatever the reasons, I couldn’t care less. I love them and for me they’re a staple worth styling over and over and over again.

 

What culottes to wear in 2018?

Denim culottes are the hottest things around. I think it was a few summers ago that they had their first appearance but didn’t quite stick. Well, well, well… fast forward to this summer and they’re the new skinnies.

They’re cool, sophisticated, loose and sexy, casual, look great with flats of all sorts and heels too.

*

 

White and black culottes are on point this summer with minimal style on the rise. They make fantastic office outfits too.

*

 

Linen, beige, yellow, orange, khaki styles. Earth tones, beachy vibes, boho minimal styles are in, alongside the straw bags for example.

*

 

Where to wear culottes in 2018?

Depending on the cut, the fabric, the style, and the personal style… culottes go everywhere.

  • office
  • events
  • cocktails
  • dinners
  • beach
  • festivals
  • casual situations
  • weekends
  • meetings
  • brunches
  • weddings

Why are culottes still so cool?

Besides being the greatest combo of granny-chic meets boho chic meets sophisticated/minimal boss lady – the secret lies in  their cut and style.

Exposed ankles always look delicate, feminine, and sexy. Pockets are always casual cool. A high waist always elongates. With sneakers or flats they look extra chic and laid back, with heels they’re hot and relaxed.

What more do you want?

I blame everything on Instagram these days, including the rise of #yellowmellow from an insta hashtag to in IRL – as the yellow color trend of 2018. I don’t mind it one bit, in fact according to my sign, #lioness its part of my color palette next to orange and red, so who’s complaining. Not to mention it’s such a summer symbol, which again is so me #summerchild, that I’m more than sold on this summer 2018 trend. And it looks great in photos. Besides, style wise no matter what you wear yellow will look good on you, it’s a matter of hue and whether or not you wear one item or drape yourself in lemonade. No?

Just bare with me throughout this post as we’ll go on the ride of your freaking lemonade summer life, and discuss HOW to wear yellow this season AND look fab!

If you don’t believe me, or Instagram, you’d better believe designers, cause their SS2018 collections had yellow in them through and through.

1.Head-to-toe YELLOW OUTFITS: DRESSES

I mean… just think Beyonce’s Lemonade yellow dress and let’s just all go home and cry of happiness. The best yellow outfits for summer are dresses: fluid, flirty, fitted, shift, shirt, midi length, maxis, or minis, in tiny prints, or solids, worn with espadrilles, heels, or sneakers.

*

 

2. Head-to-toe YELLOW OUTFITS: In more pieces

If dresses ain’t your shtick, OR you are one of those gals who looove to spend time on outfits and are the least laziest fashion person out there, (God I wish I knew what that was like), well then… it’s yellow outfits in 2, 3, 4, or 23,456 pieces for you. Skirts, shorts, tops of all sorts paired together regardless of style or cut, as long as they’re all yellow. It don’t even need to be the same yellow shade. In fact, I think the more shades and yellow hues the more it’ll all be sophisticated. From bright yellow to mustard yellow to more orange or muted and pastel styles – every lemon inspired color out there is your bestie this season.

Keep the rest simple, speaking of basic dressing here, and let yellow mellow shine through. Personalty I love either very casual laid back summer yellow outfits worn with nude comfy shoes, OR more polished yellow looks that look amazing with posh white slides or black minimal details.

BUT, yellow does look amazing against other colors, and we do live in a free fashion world, so if you wanna wear red shoes, green lips, or pink bags – go for it. It’ll definitely look fab for Instagram.

*

 

3. ‘I’ll have just one yellow thing please!’

Not everyone is such a yellow or a mellow kinda human… and some fashion lovers go by the mantra less is more, and make a bigger style splash with just one yellow item rather than wear the lemonade of the entire world at once. Yellow looks absolutely beautiful worn with blue denim, either jeans, or denim skirts or shirts. It’s one of the best combos if you ask me, worn either with heels or flat shoes.

Yellow anything also looks great against white and black, like a minimal clean outfit.

Again, if you’re an adventurous soul and love color blocking pair a yellow top with a pair of electric blue pants, or a red skirt. Do your thing.


 

Truth is, 2018 summer is a lot about color, big, bold, bright, solid shades of red, orange, yellow, pink, blues, greens… you get it. Designers are embracing these colors not just for this hot season but for fall 2018 as well…. so it makes perfect sense that each and every bold shade has its fans. And since summer is about fresh bright sunny days… Yellow Mellow lemonade is a winner.

What do you think? Do you actually like wearing yellow?

Sometimes the best things in life come in small sizes. Of course as a maximalist I’ve never found that to be true. I mean I’ll always get the larger coke and bigger pizza, the big house, the big necklace… the big party, the large ego… you get it. Yet… when it comes to 2018 latest fad, I am quite a small size lover. Of shades, people. Of shades.  From my recent post about small sunglasses, and my insta stories about them – people are not big fans. So… alone in my small sunglasses predicament I was actually wondering where in the world can I, or anyone who loves them too, could buy them.

You know them: those smaller than an asshole’s brain sunglasses, in black, blue, red, orange that casually stat the top of your nose, an match some sassy bored attitude, a la Kendall Jenner & co par example.

Without further ado here are the bestest small sunglasses ever. I mean… I love them, and I just think the Topshop ones and the Adam Seldam ones are beyond insane.

If there’s one thing AW18 collections had – that’s a busy beautiful head. From Prada, to Gucci, to Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana fashion is giving us, yet again a free pass to wearing scarves a billion ways, from our long necks, and tiny wrists… to our heads, and hairstyles. Hence the headscarf trend of 2018 spring!

First time in my life I ever consciously acknowledged a headscarf was probably when I was around 6 or so and I noticed my grandma always always wore one. She said that’s how the fashion was back in the day, and that’s how she was used to it. Plus she gave 0 fucks about her hairstyle. Of course she wore it in that Queen Elizabeth style, 50s, retro, tied either under the chin, or at the back of her head. No wild ponytail nor cool sunglasses.

These days all is in. Even Khaleesi dragons a la Gucci, or MacQueen face glam masks. So, at this point Dolce & Gabbana’s vision of a headscarf for the past 5 years or so seems pretty cool and decent.

Headscarves are both a throwback fashion moment as well as a culture thing, like in my grandma’s case, like in other nations or religions.

But the queens of headscarves to me remain: all the black ladies, Eva Mendes, and my grandma. So in case you have no idea on how to wear a head-scarf just peak into this bowl of inspiration.

Why would you wear a headscarf?

  • dirty hair
  • bad haircut
  • bad hair day
  • 0 fucks about the hair situation

OR you could actually love how it looks on you and thus it becomes a little style statement that brings a whole look together, or that turns an otherwise boring outfit into a more vibrant and chic one.

How to wear a headscarf in 2018?

Maybe there’re not a million or billion ways to wear a headscarf, nonetheless there are a few.

THE BUN – tie a scarf around your sleek or messy hair-bun and get an instant summer chic style. Pair this look with some bold earrings, like golden hoops and a pair of sunglasses. You can wear a maxi dress, an off the shoulders top with jeans, or even a blazer and a more classic outfit.

THE LOW PONYTAIL: tie a scarf around your low loose ponytail, and leave the ends out. This is a very French chic look that goes best with a plaid blazer, a spaghetti strap dress, a pair of culottes and birkinstocks.

THE HIGH MESSY PONYTAIL: did anyone call me? This is perfect for when you’re hair’s all acting up, OR you just don’t know what to do with it anymore and you and up wearing it in a high ponytail #storyofmylife, but you also feel kinda meh and basic for not doing more, so… ta-daa the head-scarf. It’s such a summer vibe effortless and very chic style gimmick. Tie a colourful scarf around you ponytail and leave the ends loose. It’s free and careless and looks amazing with anything.

THE DOLCE & GABBANA HEADSCARF: Bella Italia and Sicily and pasta and Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti, and loud grandmas and cool boys on scooters. A million earrings, a lace dress, a black summer dress, a pair of sunglasses – this is the D&G look. Tie the scarf around your head, like a head-band, leaving the back open.

THE 50s STYLE: aka my grandma all the way. Tie the scarf either under your chin or at the back of your head. Still… you might not wanna look like a 70 year old woman so take the retro vibe with a dash of 2018, and use Queen Elizabeth’s scarves as inspiration. #wacththecrown Wear bold lips, cool sunglasses, a trench coat, popped collars, gloves, high heels, a mix of today and old Hollywood style.

THE FULL ON LOOK: I mean… if you have a gorgeous face, hide that hair and flaunt those features. Hello Eva Mendes, and Zendaya, or Solange. Confident, sexy women are wearing headscarves everywhere, red carpet included. It is such a powerful look, I love it. Use a printed silk massive scarf, watch a ton of tutorials on how to tie it, rock some red lips and insane earrings and you are the queen!!!

Powersuits as powerdressig is a major trend in 2018. Sure, we’ve been dressing in powersuits in the 90s as well as 2000s, so what is changed?

Powersuits for 2018 embody everything: they’re sleek, but also slouchy, classic but so edgy, the blazer is massive, big shoulders, cinged at the waist, incredibly fashion forward in both cut as well as colour or print. However, the key lies in how we wear them, and the fact that a business look these days is also a fashion, social, and personal message.

The powersuit is 80s iconic, and if we’re to quickly pinpoint to the latest trends of 2018 fall fashion week, both the 80s, as well as power-dressing aka powersuits stand out. Sure, that’s for fall next year, but that don’t mean we can’t start practicing. In fact we’ve been unconsciously doing 80s for the past year: dressing, movies, music. So why stop now?

Personally I kinda like all the kitsch and the drama of late 80s, and don’t get me started on broad shoulders, cinged waists, big earrings, slouchy boots, and bold lips. 80s are so iconic for women’s rights, and the rise of women in business which of course led to power-dressing. It was an awakening decade socially, politically, and of course fashion wise, cause nothing ever happens in the world without it being reflected in fashion. Hence today’s #metoo movements and the rise yet again of 80s and 80s trends in 2018 fashion week, alongside minimal dressing, or men inspired looks and styles, like men designer shirts or suits.

While all is *still* in, there are a few styles of powersuits for 2018 that stand out and make a strong case for their trendiness.

1.PASTEL POWERSUITS.

It’s like mixing coffee and milk, night and day, powerful and dainty. Baby blues, pinks, and mint greens or light yellows look amazing in either powersuits that’re more classic, or the more oversized, masculine styles.

2. CHECKS & PINSTRIPES

How to look like a million bucks, like you give no fucks, like you rule the mf world, like you ooze sophistication and strength mixed with extra coolness, like you’re the queen of 80s in 2018 fashion? Put on a check print powersuit, slightly oversized, big shoulders, cinge it at the waist and go!

OR, if you’re more of a pinstripe kinda gal… go for pinstripe powersuits paired with great shoes. Like sleek kitten heel boots in red, or white.

3. OVERSIZED POWERSUITS

It’s the key cut of the 2018, the more a blazer is massive, the more we’ll love it. Same stands for pants. Mix the big suit with a cool crop top, a lace bra-top, something very cheeky that just peaks from underneath, and have fun with belts.

If you fear it’ll swallow and spit your right out (the suit), chose Tom Ford or Versace 2018 spring styles: tight high waisted pants aka leggings paired with the best tailored blazers in the world. Long, big shoulders, strong cuts, cinged waists.

4. DOULBE BREASTED POWERSUITS.

It’s retro, masculine, sophisticated, empowering, it looks cool and feels effortless especially when paired with more glamorous pieces: massive earrings, bold lips, heels.

5. CINGED WAISTS. 

Uhm… hello, the 80s called, they want their belts back. And I ain’t giving them nothing back. I used to love love love this look in the movies or in old fashion catalogues, so I’m actually kinda thrilled it’s back and we can all start channeling our inner 80s goddess. No matter how big the powersuits, how old, how dated, once you belt it you killed it. In a good way.

6. COLOURED POWERSUITS.

Powersuits are a classic piece, so when you mix them (style, cut, print) with something more edgy or fashion forward it instantly lifts their fashion vibe to this new chic and sophisticated piece that although old, feels brand new. So if you wanna look super formal, professional but still put your fashion mark and statement in our outfit – pick a bold coloured classic cut suit. Red, blue, purples and yellows are huge this season as well as next.

TIPS and street style:

In 2018 you can wear the powersuits however you please, either as a very formal classic outfit, OR just have fun with it, and go for weird cut, funky prints and fab style combinations. Not to mention you can break it down and wear the pants and/or the blazer separately.

Are sweats the new jeans? Are they so trendy and versatile we can literally trade any outfit for a sweats outfits and pull it off anywhere, and everywhere? Regardless of age, season, or personal style? Hmmmm. People… I am inclined to say YES to all the above, except maybe office days. Yeah. Those don’t work well with a sweats outfits no matter how chic, cool, luxe, athletic sophisticated it may all look. Unless of course you’re working in some creative job, or you’re wearing Gucci. Then you can fuck the ignoramuses and work that hobo-chic-and-fit style.

Anyway… sweats outfits wise it’s all crystal clear to me: they have become such a casual staple, courtesy of those athleisure trends, and of the 80s comeback that it’s the go-to-outfit for 1) running errands, 2) going shopping, 3) brunch, or 4) any cool casual style you wanna pull off one day. Even if you’re not staying home or just going to the gym.

The sweats look has been happening for a while, but I always thought it might be just a fad you know. Like those people who get gym memberships but only show up a few times a month, until they just slack on it. #didyousaysomethingtome

But no. Sweats outfits are here to stay. More so the sweats styles have evolved so much, the way we chose to wear them, where we chose to wear them seem to multiply literally by the minute. Each blogger, celebrity, peasant, stand-by-er, lover of style, hater of sports – they each have a cool new way to wear their sweats, and when all of these come together it’s really a great walking sweats moodboard out there.

So my answer to the Q above is full on yes.

However… HOW do we actually wear sweats outfits to look cool and chic like a casually rich person who has fab style but can’t be bothered on a lazy Saturday?

Here’s a 6 ways guide to pulling off sweats outfits anywhere.

1. Pick a great sweats set.

After all, it’ll be la piece de resistance in your look so you might as well invest in it, not financially speaking, just effort wise.

If you’re new to the game got for classic styles like black adidas, or grey soft sweats sets. Keep it simple, and very easy to style by itself or/and with a coat or a leather jacket.

If you love the soft-luxe but laid back styles pick a nude/taupe/brown shade sweats set. Pair it with some great nude or white sneakers, lipstick, and some dainty gold jewellery.

2. Oversized versus fitted.

The answer lies in between somewhere. You want it to follow your body, but you’re not looking for super fitted styles. You can of course go either way… but then make sure you do the oversized big so that it makes a statement, and the fitted super gym-style-outside-the-gym.

I’m sure you’ve seen loads of Instagram pics of both situations so just pick one that rocks your boat more and try to emulate it. See how it feels.

Or mix it and match it. Do fitted sweats and oversized sweatshirt, or t-shirt, and the other way around.

3. Keep it sporty and athletic casual.

That’s to say heels and sweats outfits are kinda out. Except of course if you’re Kim Kardashian, then you wear oversized sweats with heeled booties.

So… stick to sneakers, birkenstocks, slippers, and if you want heels do the ankle boots with a stiletto heel. Sandals and heeled pumps worn with sweat-pants are so 2010.

4. Go high-fashion/super-cool.

This is the street style of Fashion Weeks so fabulously done by fashion editors, bloggers and celebrities. It’s sweats outfits mixed with high fashion pieces, designer bags, super statement coats, beautiful shoes. The sweats are not those you lazy around the house in… they’re more of a nipped and tucked version of the classic sweats, more dressy, more 80s rather than 2018 chill.

5. Sweats for slobs with a chic style. #aroundthehouse

This is pretty much all of us at some point. What’s the key to taking the slob to hobo-chic level? Maybe a shower, clean hair, a pair of sunglasses if the face ain’t cooperating #meagain, clean sweats slightly more upgraded than pjs, great sneakers or slippers on, a tiny little jewellery that makes you feel pretty, a leather jacket on top.

6. Celebrity style.

This is the slob version of each of us being completely caught off guard when getting coffee, by the paparazzi. I know. Such a drag. The style is usually either a simple sweats set with a coat or jacket on top, or it can be cropped sweats (either the pants or the sweatshirt). Or you can do the sweatpants and a sports bra with a cool jacket on top.

General tips: you can even wear sweaters with sweatpants as a cool combo. And for an even more laid back vibe layer a longer t-shirt underneath a sweatshirt, and top it all off with a denim jacket, a bomber or a leather jacket.

The biggest, the best, better than the rest. Everyone sing with me. No? Okay. (feels embarrassed, sits down) While I might be getting slightly ahead of myself here, with the singing and all, the fact is every now and then fashion is just amazing. How it takes one ugly or boring item and makes it the most beautiful thing in the world. That is perfection. Such is the case of plaid pants, the pants that everyone is wearing these days. So… the bigger, the best, better than the rest singing (2018 trend) now makes sense. Still no?

Say what you want I’m sticking to both the song and the plaid pants, and coming from me aka Lover of only black pants and any colour denims, my new found love for plaid pants is kinda surprising. To say the least. But I love them. And in my humble opinion I do think they’re the biggest trend of 2018.

Why is everyone wearing plaid pants? 

Err… hello best trend of 2018! They just beautifully showed up on our sartorial radar courtesy of the plaid trend altogether, and everyone’s wearing them cause they have this chic vibe to them. French style mixed with retro, mixed with laid back but also being able to translate to a billion other personal styles.

Plaid pants are like this fashion challenge everyone’s doing: wearing them to fit their own looks. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels, some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles.

The plaid pants themselves come in more styles: dressy, for office, cigarette, with pockets, brown checks, black and white, coloured, elastic band waist (hallelujah! I couldn’t have asked for a better trend while being pregnant!), normal waist band, high waist, fitted, slouchy… You just pick your thing and roll with it.

These are also the reasons why everyone’s wearing them: there’s a little something for any and all body types, they’re very flattering, and they’re very easy to style with no wrong fashion turns, you know.

How to wear plaid pants?

Personally I love the relaxed chic style of the brown plaid pants, maybe an elastic waist band, cigarette cut, slightly cropped, with flat shoes, and a white t-shirt. Perfection for Saturday brunch, and for office style.

I honestly think there’s no wrong way to wear them.
