Mad for Plaid

Even in this sweltering heat I’m dreaming of light moto and military style jackets, studded thigh high boots in tan and magenta and plaid…oh plaid.

Welcome back to my closet, plaid baby! This time around I am leaving behind my Nirvana grunge and inviting in a cleaner version for those of us who are in the second fashion stage of our lives.

Playing with the preppy side of plaid is where you’ll see this look really take off. Simply speaking, plying a plaid shirt with pearls or sparkle can really make it your own. Don’t let the idea of plaid hold you back or box you in. Pair it with a leather or jean shirt for a night out.

Add a statement necklace  that sparkles!

Top with pearls and play with strong feminine accessories like a spiky ring and a leather skirt!

Be brave and top off your look with a glorious scarf or wrap and own it, girlfriend! Seen here with a tailored shirtdress this outfit is ready for work!

Top your outfit with a wool plaid wrap. A statement in luxury.

Go big or go home and go for a dress in full throttle plaid! Top it with a jean or leather jacket and play with your rockstar side.

Be rockstar ready and play with the delicate nature of the necklace against an open toe, black ankle, kick butt boot!

Whatever you do, enjoy the long weekend and treat yourself. Get mad for plaid and infuse your fall wardrobe with at least one version of this season’s hot trend.

Cheers!
