Tis the Season With Plaid

Plaid shirt: Forever 21, Stripe shirt: H&M (recent sale $10), Skirt: Thrifted, Heels: Loft (similar), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, H&M scarf (recent sale $5), Frank Gehry for Fossil watch, J.Crew bauble bracelets, bombom dainty ring (c/o), Anthropologie ring, Foley & Corinna bag

There's something about the plaid shirt that has turned the quintessential 90s grunge piece into a chic addition to the modern wardrobe. It's quickly become a fun pattern to incorporate into print mixing and it has been updated with studs and spikes (like this Zara shirt) or made chic by pairing with unexpected items (like sequin skirts). I was pretty tomboy-ish in the way I dressed as a kid so I definitely owned a plaid shirt or two. I loved wearing it as a layer to my t-shirt or tied around my waist. 

For this look, I layered my plaid shirt with my stripe shirt underneath and paired that with my ladylike thrifted wool skirt. Of course, I threw in some leopard for good measure (belt and shoes). Ya know...in case there wasn't enough print mixing going on. It's an eclectic mix of vintage, grunge and ladylike chic (so it seems). 
Tis the Season!

  18. I love the way plaid and stripes look together. And that skirt is just amazing! I am always on the lookout for skirts like that at thrift stores and I can never find them in my size. Always either too big or too small. You look amazing though! <3

  20. i have been living in my plaids and flannels lately! i love seeing them paired with feminine pieces like your skirt here.

  21. You've certainly taken the plaid shirt to another level. I've always liken the print to more grungy, rocker type style but your outfit is unbelievably feminine.
