Recently spotted as a major trend in the 2018 Resort Collections, designers are reinventing the ever-popular, classic plaid by using it in unexpected fabrics and in unconventional shapes. Fashion Fabrics Club has a wide range of colors and variations of prints so you can make your own pieces at home to play to the trend.


Alberta Ferretti took plaid to a more feminine place, using plaid chiffon in more whimsical looks like this orchid purple floor-length pleated dress. To make this look more street-style/everyday appropriate, try a simpler version like a maxi skirt.


While wool plaid suiting is nothing out of the ordinary, using it for pieces like these shown here by Oscar de la Renta—shift dresses, wide-leg trousers, and matching boxy tops—is definitely a new twist.


Cotton plaid usually brings to mind cozy PJs, but 3.1 Phillip Lim used it in a totally new way: to transform a traditional suit into a more casual, cool look. The laid-back accessories and flip-flop sandals only add to the equation.


Fendi—always a master of the fine details—cleverly combined plaid and houndstooth into one killer print (zoom in to see the houndstooth print where the stripes meet). And Fashion Fabrics Club happens to have a print just like it.
