Fall '13 Focus: How To Wear Plaid

If you’re like us, you’ve probably avoided the plaid trend –– especially since we live in the Midwest. Confusing a high fashion runway trend for a simple country girl is not what we’re trying to achieve here! But, 2013 is a year of change and I’m actually excited to give this one a try! This fall has brought about a number of exciting trends allowing us to incorporate plaid in unique ways we might not have otherwise considered. Take a look at some of my favorite plaid looks that I’ve found on Pinterest for this season...

The punk trend is one way to tie in plaid elements. I absolutely love this look! The plaid scarf with a studded leather jacket, basic white tee, and rolled ankle pants gives off an edgy vibe while still being sophisticated enough to not look like a rebellious teen. And this stylish lady even went one step further and mixed in some lovely leopard print booties to tie it all together.

While it’s not uncommon for men to sport plaid in the office, it’s a little less popular with the women. This look is super fresh and perfect for fall with a bright pencil skirt and comfy, flannel plaid blouse dressed up with pave chain link jewelry and patent heels.

As fall nears winter, we’ll find ourselves piling on the layers to keep warm. This look is one example of the perfect way to do just that! This oversized, red plaid top with a fur vest (faux, of course!) and black leggings make for a stylish look that is completely different from the usual plaid button-up, denim, and riding boots.

Here is another great look integrating a red, plaid print, but this time inspired by another fall trend –– menswear. This oversized blouse resembles a mens shirt, but pairs nicely with black skinny pants and leopard heels for a feminine look. What ties it all together? Sparkly, girly accessories and a studded statement bag!

If you’re looking to try the leather trend this fall but aren’t sure you can pull it off, consider a look like this one. I love the ‘rough-n-tough meets ladylike’ feel of it. Another trend to be on the lookout for this fall is 1940s vintage, and this leather swing skirt is a perfect fit! Complete the look with strappy heels, an oversized bag and a cute little top knot for the perfect mix of naughty and nice.
