No doubt, plaid is a classic fall print. So, as you pack away your summer staples and make room for all things fall, secure a spot for plaid prints too. Last fall/winter, we witnessed plaid shake off its stuffy reputation, presenting itself as edgy even. This season, we’re seeing more of that. And, with some easy styling tweaks, you can add a lot of flavor to your old plaid favorites too.
What I’m Wearing:
Plaid topper | Zara Faux leather pants (similar) | Belt | Stuart Weitzman booties (sold out)
Wool fedora (size M) | Lip: Charlotte Tilbury “Red Carpet Red”
First thing’s first, my plaid topper is an all-time favorite piece from St. Louis-based Soft Surroundings. It’s like a coatigan (neither coat nor cardigan), making it a transitional weather essential. It’s super soft and quite chic. The best news? If you missed it last year and wanted one, it’s back (shop it here)!
A topper in plaid is a great choice for styling and restyling. This topper can elevate basics like jeans (see here). It can add a stylish touch to your favorite joggers. And, it can offer an interesting style juxtaposition when paired with edgier pieces like faux leather leggings.
My flared, faux leather leggings are an older style from Zara (see them styled here, here, and here). I’ve linked a few current options in the widget below because tis the season to rock that pleather.
To cinch the look together, I added a statement belt, booties (for the color and texture), and a sharp fedora.
How will you be rocking this classic fall print?
