Plaid. The traditional print that has been ruling the AW13 runways and is a massive trend this season. But fresh shapes, styles and creative uses of the print mean it’s return is far from old-fashioned.

Plaid time. Our trend top 10

From Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs to Anna Sui and Victoria Beckham, all the heavyweight designers are jumping on plaid bandwagon and whipping up their own contemporary, re-imagianed versions of the traditional. And luckily for us high street giants are following suit with their Autumn/Winter 2013 collections like Primark ‘Highland Grunge’.

Last season monochrome prints have given way to much softer, bright blanket weaves and with so many check colours and varieties sharing a modern charm, every person has a plaid to suit them.

Mix up your tartan with leather and denim textures to add the contemporary twist and work sleek tartan tailoring in with boxy crops and relaxed knitwear.

Keep it wild with a slick of burgundy or plum lipstick and you’re ready to go!

So to help you work this seasons must have trend we have hand picked these…
