Five Ways to Wear Plaid this Summer

Gone are the days when plaid was just for farmers and lumberjacks.  Plaid is one of those styles that is never in or out, it’s just always there, like a major food group but in the style world.

In the summer I wear plaid as a swimsuit cover up whether I’m sitting by the pool or cruising on a boat.

Plaid dresses are a great daytime go-to whether you’re running errands or going to a party.

Zappos

Button down plaid shirts are a common wardrobe staple for both men and women!

Bloomingdales

Jazz up your plaid with an awesome going out off-the-shoulder top.

Saks Fifth Avenue

If you’re ready to get really crazy and dive back into the hippy 70’s, maybe you’ll try a pair of flare plaid pants.  They’re definitely a head turner on their own, so I’d stick with a pretty basic top to match with it.

This is what your Little Black Dress Needs!

Many of you can probably see that I definitely like my little black dresses. I blog about them all the time, and I’m constantly upgrading to the new and exciting styles. Everyone knows you can’t go wrong with a little black dress. But when you’re heading to a party or a bar and you don’t know exactly how fancy/casual it is, there can be a sense of hesitation about wearing a black dress. Will it be too fancy? Will everyone be in jeans?…BUT I really want to wear a black dress! If you’ve ever faced this situation (I know I have!), here’s how you can solve it!

Little black dress says, “fancy.”

A plaid button-down shirt says, “ultra casual, this is my boyfriend’s shirt that I just threw on.”

So, combine the two (wear the plaid shirt un-buttoned over the black dress) and you’ve got “I’m a lady that likes dressing up, but tonight I just want to be chill, comfy, and effortlessly sexy” a.k.a you’ve got perfection!

I apologize for making my outfits talk, but if you think of each outfit as it’s own personality, it’s really rather effective and fun!

Love,
