Pretty Plaids

Busier is better when it comes to fall fashion. It’s the new normal and I’ve rounded up several my faves and, of course, I always love to be in on what you’re thinking about wearing in the coming months.


The plaid fad seems to be cyclical in nature, showing up again when you’d least expect it! Retro plaid is reappearing in a big way and you might be surprised at what you can do with it to bring it up to your standards for the season.  Real fashion mavens pride themselves on being able to diversify their look at the drop of a hat.


I just love this transitional Plaid Fad anorak jacket from Clothes Minded Boutique – and for $20, who wouldn’t?  Throw it on for those chilly fall mornings, hang it up in the coat closet for the day, and grab for it as the sun goes down at the end of the day.  It’s versatile and fun for casual wear, office – even that spur of the moment happy hour drink. Cheers!


You don’t have to look any further than Nordstrom for this very affordable Halogen short- and-sweet A-line skirt. It’s cut from a textured stretch knit with a tricolor plaid pattern.  Feel like you’re in elementary school again?  I say go for it and enjoy the vibes!


Feeling a bit more grown-up?  Then try this Halogen mixed plaid pencil skirt. It’s long and lean and very sexy – a perfect transition into autumn! This sleek, woven skirt offers a trendy twist on an old favorite with chic splash of plaid side panels.  I personally guarantee you’ll love it!


The JCrew Collection Regency menswear tailored pants (Savile Row and all that, you know!) in English glen plaid wool in a combo black/ivory/burgundy fit the bill for your fall wardrobe.  Add splashy, fun heels and you won’t even realize that you’re headed back to the future!


Even Kohls is getting into the act with these Apt9 plaid skinny ankle dress pants.  Wear them…everywhere and you’ll fit right in!


Modcloth online has an incredible selection of dresses showcasing a plethora of plaid.  I found the perfect fit for my days in the office – an understated grey, plaid sheath with a rounded collar.  It says “work” but with a smile…and who knows where it can take you after hours? With the perfect fit and great attention to subtlety, it’s timeless and head-turning!


Ready to pop some more color into your wardrobe this season? Then check out this Red Moon plaid mini dress by Free People. Showcasing an effortlessly oversized silhouette, this drop-waist look features plaid and a relaxed button front v-neckline.  It’s simply adorable with its combination of smocked cuffs, drop waist, and even a ruffled hem detail.


As always, feel free to fill me in on your thoughts about…ANYTHING!   I’m always interested in what interests you!
