Top 10 Plaid Pieces for Fall

Hi all,

Thank you for stopping by the blog today! Let's talk about fall - a topic we're covering quite a bit in this first week of a new season. Fall doesn't mean you have to put all of your prints and colors away. An on-trend print is plaid and it's an incredibly versatile one. The only trick here is to stick to fall-colored hues such as plums, burnt oranges, reds, greens, navy, and classic black! So let's take a look at how to wear plaid in different settings.

Plaid at Work

A great item to wear plaid at work is a blazer. Pair it with a classic white button down and wide trousers plus pump and you'll be the envy of the office.

Plaid pants are another great option for work as they are conservative but not boring! Style with a basic colored knit, blouse, or turtleneck and add a classic pump.

Plaid at Brunch

Whon doesn't like a bit of flannel? For brunch, grab your favorite plaid flannel top whichis also on trend because the 90's are still in! Pair with a great over the knee boot and choker. Style tip: Try having the flannel top hit at your thighs so you conceal them to create an illusion of leaner legs.

You can also try a dress and finish the look by styling a sweater over the dress and adding a pair of flat or heeled knee boots.

Plaid is what's for dinner

Try a dress and pair of booties, like I do below and then finish the look with a great classic bag from Bag, Borrow, or Steal.

Or how about a Skirt? You can try different lengths depending on what you feel comfortable, this can be mini, midi, or ankle length. Pair all with a basic or graphic tee, white button down (tucked in), or basic colored sweater. For shoes, depending on the length of the skirt, I would advise a different shoe. If you selected mini, you have many options. Try an over the knee boot, combat boot, ankle bootie, or classic pump. Midi length? Try a a bootie or pump, and if you selected ankle length, go for a pump.

You can also try a plaid top and finish it with a great pair of black denim and bootie or pump!

It's cold! Grab the plaid!

Where to turn to when the temperatures drop? A plaid coat, of course! Keep the rest of the look simple. Try a monochrome look to help create an illusion of extra height (eyes are drawn up and down). This can be done by choosing a turtleneck and pair of pants in any basic color, think white, nude, navy, or black!
