It’s never too early to study the new trends of the season, neither if it’s too hot outside to even think about coats and furs! Do you want to know everything about fall-winter 2018/2019 collections? The Blonde Salad is the right place to discover all its iconic pieces. Today we’re going to show you why check and tartan prints we’re going to wear next season: stay tuned!


Mix tartan and check prints on your clothes

How to wear check prints next season? The most fashionable trend is to mix and match them. Versace gives us a super cool idea: we can choose different prints and blend them all together on masculine blazers, pleated skirts, jumpsuits and mini dresses. N°21 suggests us to mix traditional motifs with more contemporary designs, while Michael Kors brings the grunge vibe back, with checked pants and maxi scarves.


Check prints + coats = amazing!

If you’re in love with check and tartan prints, you won’t resist to a checked printed coat’s timeless charm. Fall-winter 2018/2019 collections take us back to our grandmothers’ old coats, reinterpreting them with an innovative taste. Miu Miu plays with oversized shapes, while Fendi brings back old double-breasted coats with fur hems. Are you looking for a contemporary vibe? Let’s get tempted by Balenciaga‘s sculpted silhouettes!

Discovering a new pop palette

It’s so wrong to think that check and tartan prints are unfashionable. We already told you: these prints will set the rules for the next season, and the colour palette is here to confirm it. We’ll see, next to traditional shades like white, black, grey and brown, bold tones as well, such as neon orange (a Prada‘s idea), and new colour matches, like blue and red (like we saw at Dior‘s)

A new trend: check prints on long romantic dresses!

Check and tartan prints expressed their beauty on typically winter pieces. Coats, parkas, masculine suits and maxi scarves, on rough and rich fabrics like wool, are their match made in Heaven. This year, we’ll see more romantic, sweet and glamorous vibes on these prints. Where? On beautiful sheer long dresses, like the ones we saw on Alberta Ferretti and Calvin Klein Collection‘s runways. We can already steal this style tip from next season’s collection and use it on our summer outfits.
