We officially brought in Fall 2014 over the weekend, which means a couple of things:
1. We will be sipping pumpkin spice lattes and caramel apple spice drinks.
2. Even though the weather is still warm we just can’t wait to jump into fall layers and knee-high boots.
3. Lots of Fall crafts (which really deserves its own post).
4. And PLAID, PLAID EVERYWHERE.
So this week we will be focusing on everything plaid (and San Francisco Fashion Week, but stay tuned for that). In the first of many plaid-ilicious posts we wanted to try and help our plaid lovers by answering the age-old question, “How do I pull off wearing plaid without looking like a lumberjack?”
There are several different ways to still look feminine and wear plaid–and it doesn’t have to be a ton of work. A simple plaid shirt can be layered or worn with denim or a great skirt. Adding a chunky jewelry piece to an already layered look can add a great detail to an outfit. For example, take a piece of jewelry with a bit of sparkle and flash and lay it on top of a plaid shirt layered with a sweater, (so the edge of plaid peaks out from the top and bottom). This look will create a put together glowing Fall look.
We also love when a cool plaid top is paired with a more form-fitting layer to bring out the lines in the top. Whether it be a leather jacket and scarf or the more upscale look of a fitted blazer, both will pull the eye to the waist, which can create a very cool, feminine look.
For minimal effort just throw on a plaid top and some easy pants, denim is always a good look. Then just add a touch of height with a heel or boot, it always gives the look that extra “kick.”
