Plaid shirt and Rachel Zoe bootsHello beauties.  It’s THURSDAYYYY! One more day ’til Friday so hang in there. Today’s post features one of my favorite fall shirts, period. It’s a plaid peplum number that I love because it’s so easy to pair with numerous items.  Some folks shy away from plaid because it reminds them of the Plaid Prince of Belair: Carlton lol

But have no fear, plaid is actually a cool fall staple and there are many ways to rock it.  Read on, beautiful:

Look #1:

  • So for the first look, I paired the plaid top with a pair of distressed jeans, some tan ankle boots and you know I had to cinch up the waist with a blue wrap belt.
  • The blue from the belt complements the blue from the plaid top nicely.

Look #2:

  • For look number 2, same exact plaid top and belt but paired with a denim skirt and tall brown boots.

Both looks are casual but chic enough where you’re kicking it up a notch.

Other Great Ways to Wear Plaid:

  • You can rock everything from tops to pants to skirts to scarves to capes, coats and everything in-between!
  • See collage for inspiration.  Collage deets as well as my outfit details are below.

Would love to hear from you! Let me know if you’re a fan or foe of plaid.

Thanks for dropping by! Don’t be a stranger, xoxo.
