Well plaid!

Tra­di­tional fab­rics hot for au­tumn

Irish Sunday Mirror - - STYLE ON SUNDAY -

TALLY-HO! Au­tumn’s her­itage print has re­turned with de­sign­ers re­viv­ing the coun­try-in­spired fash­ion trend. From tar­tans to tweeds to plaids and her­ring­bone checks, AW18 fo­cuses strongly on tra­di­tional fab­rics.

Top fash­ion houses, such as Marc Ja­cobs and Miu Miu, em­braced the trend but Karl Lager­feld at Chanel proved the most de­voted, as he pa­raded mod­els down the cat­walk of crisp au­tumn leaves wear­ing the fab­ric.

The town and coun­try look is a big hit on the high street where a mod­ern yet so­phis­ti­cated twist to tra­di­tional fab­rics are seen on suit­ing as well as a mix of dresses, out­er­wear and week­end looks.

Blow the bud­get on a win­ter must-have, a clas­sic coat that will last you for years.

We’re dream­ing about the se­lec­tion in Arnotts at the mo­ment and are con­sid­er­ing spend­ing the rent on the Luisa Cer­ano tweed coat.

You can get the look for less at Marks & Spencer with their Lim­ited Edition coat (€140) and Spanish re­tailer Mango’s Bal­moral-in­spired long coat (€149.99).

Mean­while, Zara’s tweed mini dress is giv­ing Chanel a run for its money and at just €39.95 is a frac­tion of the price of the iconic French la­bel.
