Seeing Plaid

Plaid is BACK! Not that it was ever really gone, it never really seems to go out of style.

I have very limited plaid in my closet, but when I saw this skirt in Madewell I had to try it! I like how simple and easy it is to wear in many different ways.  Plus the shirttail silhouette is very flattering.

Lately I have had a lot of fun wearing t-shirts in unexpected ways.  For example, wearing this PURRFECT “Oklahoma Kitty” t-shirt from local Tulsa artist Bombs Away Art with my plaid skirt, among other things.  Look for a slouchy tee with a black and white print, it will go with everything! I  usually buy the unisex styles, instead of the styles designed for women. I do not like cap sleeves and  I do not like small v-necks thank you very much. Who looks good in a cap sleeve anyway?? WHO?? Ok, enough with my rant.  I also usually go up a size to add a little extra slouch and if the sleeves are too long, roll them up.

There is that small tuck in the front again, see how effortless of a look it makes? And to top it all off, add a bright accessory, especially if you are wearing a dark plaid.

If you want to go with a more classic look, try wearing a shirt that matches one of the less prominent colors in the plaid, or of course chambray.

Of course add a piece of jewelry, simple or bold! I put the Clear Bead Statement necklace with it to add a little understated sparkle.  Although it is a fashion jump for me, I buttoned up the shirt and put the necklace right up under the collar.

In conclusion, you do not have to be a lumberjack or a catholic school girl to wear plaid.  Just find the right piece for you.  For a good classy plaid, J. Crew, Madewell, and Ann Taylor are good places to start.  If you want unconventional plaid, check out Free People.
