Weekender Edition

I'm mad for plaid! I didn't realize until recently that plaid is an extremely fun wardrobe staple. It's the perfect print to ease in to wearing prints if you're a solid wearer type of gal. I've also noticed plaid/tartan/flannel are all over the store window displays these days. If you're on a journey to find the perfect plaid, my advice is to go with deep hues and rich blends. If you're stuck in a rut deciding how to wear your plaid pick, my advice is to have fun with it! Wrap a plaid/flannel shirt around your waist for a grundgy look. Wear it as a button down tucked in to a high waisted skirt for a feminine look. Layer it over as a coat for a lumberjack/menswear vibe. Wear a mens plaid shirt as a shirt-dress with a belt and booties. Either way- plaid is such a great way to make a plain outfit more lively. Here is a quick lesson on how I wore my slim fit plaid trousers three different ways.
