Trend Alert: Menswear inspired plaid prints.
Plaid is a sophisticated print that gives women a menswear look with a feminine twist. This print will be trending into Fall 18, so don't throw these styles in the donate pile when summer comes.
See how I styled my plaid in 2 different looks below.
Plaid Look #1
The plaid jumpsuit is from Topshop. They are almost sold out of the color combo that I am wearing but I also added a bold green color combo below.
Topshop Plaid Jumper - Red/Black Combo
Topshop Plaid Jumper - Green/Black Combo
I styled this jumpsuit with a black turtle neck and black booties. For a more casual take on this look I would pair the jumpsuit with vans or white chucks and layer a denim or leather jacket.
Plaid Look #2
Plaid blazers remind me so much of the workplace. I decided to style my plaid blazer for the total opposite. I paired my plaid blazer with a graphic tee to add some spunk, and the mini skirt - thigh high boot combo to add some sexiness. I also added a wide brim hat to make a chic statement, and a red mini bag for a pop. You can style plaid blazers in SO many ways. I especially love blazers belted. My blazer came with a belt but you can use any of your favorite belts or even a belt bag/fanny pack to create the same look.
The plaid blazer I styled above is no longer available at Zara but I listed similar options below.
Blazer Option #1 - Zara
Blazer Option #2 - ASOS
Blazer Option #3 - ASOS Plus
Blazer Option #4 - Target
