I don’t know what it is exactly about plaid, but I say ALWAYS have some plaid in your closet! Maybe because it’s a classic, or maybe it’s because it’s not as boring as a solid color. Whatever the reason, I LOVE it and usually have at least one pair of plaid pants in my closet!
I think some women get hung up on plaids and prints. They aren’t sure what to wear with them. I think they may feel restricted by plaids. But I wanted to prove that thinking wrong, and show you how to wear it different ways. When I picked up these pants at JCrew (by the way they are ON SALE now) my first choice of styling was with something very casual on top. I wore them first with this sweatshirt and heels.
My go-to always seems to be a tee shirt! And I loved the combination of this color with the dark green and navy in the pants! The off colors are so cute together I think. I wore this with a faux fur denim jacket and my sparkly pumps! My jacket is from a a few years back but THIS ONE is even cuter!
My bag can be found here.
But on to how I would wear these plaid pants differently…
THIS WOULD BE FOR SATURDAY!
I love the NYC sweatshirt with the checks underneath. This is actually what I wore to the JCrew event I hosted in December…. except with my sparkly pumps! The sneakers I know are an indulgence, but they are seriously so cute! One day I will have some GOLDEN GOOSE sneakers! Sigh…….
THIS WOULD BE FOR THE OFFICE!
This blazer is a classic and comes in three colors. I like the navy or the tan with these pants. This is a very simple, clean, conservative look. It’s a very professional look, and each of these pieces will NEVER go out of style! The pants really will get all the attention with this one!
THIS LAST ONE WOULD BE FOR GOLFING!
Since I am a golfer, I love the idea of these pants out on the course. It would need to be a cooler day because they are lined and more of a winter pant. But no matter, still cute and still so fitting for the fairways! This was the first time I went golfing with my husband, right after we met…. and in dressed in plaid!
So if you’re a little hesitant with plaids, I hope I’ve shown you enough reasons NOT TO BE! You should always have some plaid in your closet! It is a classic and you’ll always look STYLISH in it! Even…… on the golf course!
