The Fair Isle print has been around for a VERY long time, in fact, it was apparently quite popular around WWI…So that’s kind of almost 100 years. Anyway, it seems to be back in fashion and is trendy in the colder seasons.
In 2010 Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall runway collection was full of Fair Isle, on anything including hot-pants (rather contradictory I’d say) but it definitely sparked a trend and even though its not as “in” as it was 2 years ago, its still looking pretty hot.
Lets dedicate today’s post to men’s fashion. Checks constantly come in and out of fashion, so if you have something plaid don’t bother chucking it out once the trend fades out because it will definitely be back. These days you can put just about anything on a tie, be it a Picasso print or skeletons but you can never go wrong with good old checks…and plaid ties are back in. In bright colours.
When in doubt, choose black-it’s always there for you. It makes you look slimmer, smarter and can be worn for just about any occasion. And wearing all black can look sexy as hell, but where do we draw the line between sexy and just gothic – there is such thing as too much as a good thing.
