Going Plaid


Plaid had me at HELLO this fall season. Inspired by its variety of patterns and prints, I was beaming when I recently found the perfect plaid pieces at Uniqlo

When shopping for plaid, the main thing to remember is fit. Plaid pieces will drown a silhouette if the item is too big in both pattern and size. Items like, button ups and jackets should always be a tailored cut, for the contrast between the masculine lumber jack print with the feminine fit will keep your look modern and current. If you prefer a more casual and comfy ensemble, go with an over sized scarf or cape, creating a simple yet statement look (Blogger crush Carlina from Allergic to Vanilla rocked a cape on point, See Here!). For my outfit, I loved the idea of mixing plaid prints. I had reservations at first about a plaid down vest, but I am glad the boy convinced me to get it.  For a trend I hated back in the 90's, now I can't stop seeing this look everywhere and I am kinda in love. Also the fact that it actually keeps me super warm helps too. 

Uniqlo is now open at the Great Mall and I definitely think I might have to go back for a fabulous plaid cape so stay tuned!
