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.
Pair them with:
- turtlenecks for retro vibe
- white silky/or crispy button-down shirts
- this hoodie for laid back
- t-shirts for casual cool
- layer them with this cozy cardigan for that hobo chic style
- throw this cool yellow blazer on for a more pulled together look
- chunky sweaters for a chic winter vibe
- printed tops for ultimate sophistication
I honestly think there’s no wrong way to wear them.
