Perfectly Plaid

If there’s one trend I love about this fall and winter, it is certainly plaid.

From plaid coats, to plaid skirts, to plaid flannels, to plaid scarves. I can’t get enough plaid.

Two of my favorite celebrities have styled plaid so effortlessly. Taylor Swift uses this plaid printed coat as a stunning statement piece. Although she was probably a bit cold with her minimal choice of bottoms… I love how the coat just pops. In addition, her monochromatic take on accessorizing complements the coat so nicely. The burgundy boots and burgundy bag are killer, with or without the coat.


Jennifer Aniston, featured in Friends back in the late 90’s, seriously rocks her tartan plaid skirt. If I could buy this skirt for the holidays, I would probably wear it Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Eve with absolutely no shame. Although I would pass on the knee-high socks, I love her almost-turtleneck sweater paired with a chunky gold watch. The skirt really speaks for itself in this look and that’s why I love it.



Below are a few ways that I have chosen to style my plaid pieces this fall and winter. The first look is an edgier look, with the main focus being my grey and navy plaid flannel. I paired it with some black leggings and studded black boots. Around my neck, I added a blue statement necklace that brought out the blue tones of my flannel. I added some gold studs on my ears to complement the necklace. To make the look more vampy, I wore a dark, berry lip.



My second look is a softer, more festive look in my opinion. I layered my favorite plaid scarf over a cream sweater. I wore some dark-wash jeans and black booties, in addition to some pearl earrings and a gold bracelet. To add to the festiveness of this look, I wore a sheer red lip. This scarf is just.. so much yes. It really stands out against the cream sweater and it makes putting an outfit together so easy.  I love it a little too much.
