Well, it’s officially been fall for over a month already and this week it actually feels like it. There’s finally crisp morning air, changing leaves and golden sunsets. And I'm loving it. It's time to layer up and head outside with a blanket scarf and a statement trench coat. This season's fashion trends have incorporated several vintage elements that can make any outfit stand out as unique and stylish.
The Fall trend we are loving the most right now:
1970s Vintage Plaid
According to the streets of New York City and our favorite online fashion experts at Elle, Harpers Bazaar, and Cosmopolitan, vintage plaid is a huge fashion trend this season. Not lumberjack flannel plaid, or 90's grunge plaid, but the plaid of the 70's. Plaid is showing up everywhere in blazers, coats, pants and evening gowns in muted neutrals to bright and colorful plaids.
Here are a couple examples of some true 1970s vintage to inspire you:
Vintage 70's Marimekko Purple And Brown Plaid Maxi Gown

This bold 70's vintage brown, purple and white plaid dress captures their unique style. Have an event that you need a one-of-a-kind gown for? Try plaid!
Vintage 70's Malcolm Starr Black and Silver Plaid Gown
This 70's vintage Malcolm Starr plaid black and silver dress definitely makes a statement and is sure to make anyone's waist look tiny. I love this 6" wide black waistband!
Vintage 70's Marimekko Plaid Jumpsuit
This Marimekko Suomi Finland Pant Suit in brown, rust and tan plaid is anything but boring. Vuokko Nurmesniemi was a principal designer for Marimekko, and is known for bold color and shape combinations creating whimsical looks. How fun (and incredibly comfortable) would this be to work into your wardrobe?
Vintage Sybil Connolly Black And White Plaid Coat And Skirt
Sybil Connolly was a fashion icon of the 60's and 70's. She was a favorite designer of First Lady Jackie Kennedy and this wool, black and white plaid suit highlights her amazing style. Don't you just love these huge pockets and the kick pleat in the skirt?
So, what do you think? Do you like the plaid trend this season? Are you considering giving it a try? Or have you been wearing it already? Leave us a comment to let us know. Thanks!
