One of 2018’s biggest trends is Plaid. The trend isn’t just about school girls wearing those short skirts anymore, or, that red and black tartan shirt that you own. The plaid trend has catapulted into something more. Now, there’s bright coloured plaid styles and even plaid sets. One thing that is clear? Plaid is here to stay.
I bought this Plaid blazer and skirt, about a year ago. I bought the skirt first, because it was so mesmerizing and I couldn’t leave the store without it. I don’t usually wear skirts, but I liked this one because it had buttons and I liked the plaid pattern. The color was really nice as well, it was really subdued which is what I’m into
I had to attend an end of the year office party, so I thought, “Hmm, what should I wear?”, so I went to the mall to see what I could find. I found the plaid blazer and I just had to get it. I thought “This would look amazing with a black pair of skinny jeans”, and so I purchased it. I didn’t even realize that the blazer matched the skirt until I brought it home. Haha. I had never worn a skirt suit before but I decided to try something new.
So, how does one wear plaid? Well, I think it depends on what event you’re going to, or what look you’re trying to pull off.
The day I wore this outfit, I was trying to come up with a sophisticated look. This look can be worn to the office or a women’s conference. Throw on a nice pair of heels and you’re good to go.
If you’re going for a more casual look with plaids, consider pairing a plaid shirt with some skinny jeans. This type of outfit can be worn on an outing with friends or to the mall. This look will feel effortless.
If you’re someone who is more feminine, I would suggest pairing a plaid top with a leather skirt or high waisted trousers. You can put on some nice stilettos and a bright coloured purse to stand out.
This outfit really made me feel confident. I felt like I was the Prime Minister of Canada.
Whether you choose a larger check plaid print or you choose to mix and match, plaid is here to stay.
