How To Wear It: Plaid

Plaid has been for most of the time a familiar and a rather safe choice for Fall and Winter. However designers took it to a new level this season. Wearing plaid can be challenging now. You risk looking like a prep school student and this autumn plaid is going beyond looking preppy and put together. I guess in the fall collections there were more tamed, high-end versions of punk looks rather than comme-il-faut plaid skirts like the ones we were used to.

I tried to create 3 versatile outfits- each featuring a different plaid item. Each look corresponds to a different style, age and personality.

How To Wear It: Plaid

Wal G peplum mini dress, €18 / Topshop rib shirt, €52 / Sea, New York peplum top, €285 / Ganni coat, €340 / Rag & Bone mid-rise jeans, €170 / Moschino green tartan skirt, €800 / Zara black wedge ankle booties, €46 / Repetto round toe flat, €215 / Casadei brown sandals, €820 / Michael Kors gold tone bangle, €150 / Mawi spiked collar necklace, €585 / Cateye glasses, €7,62

The first item is a cute, girly, preppy shirt that you would imagine a classy urban girl in her late 20s- early 30s wear. To balance out the girliness of the top, I chose a pair of boyfriend jeans and bright flats to make this look practical for a multi-tasking, busy woman that spends here whole day out.

 The second item I chose is a pleated mini skirt, the one that a very young girl will pull off. This girl is fun, but kinda hipster, she doesn't take fashion seriously and she doesn't think through her outfits entirely. She loves dark colors and these wedge boots make her legs look good and give that "rock chick" edge.

 The last item is an oversized coat. This outfit is ultra ladylike, chic and has an uptown vibe to it. It's a about the classy woman that shops at Bergdorf's and invites her girlfriends to tea. It's basically an outfit that is very classic and can work for every woman, whether she's 25 or 45.
