Plus Size Fashion – 1 Trend – 3 Looks – The Plaid Skirt
by Elizabeth MCGuffin (with wonder and whimsy)
Each year, plaid cycles back into fashion. Try the classic crisscross pattern on a pencil, a-line, or pleated skirt, and you’ll have a piece you can wear week after week this autumn. Channel 90s grunge with clunky boots, ripped fishnets, and a moto jacket. Remix the same skirt with a crisp white button-up, cashmere sweater, and ballet flats for a preppy chic look. A plaid skirt is a smart wardrobe staple and a style chameleon. Top it with a blazer for the workweek, dress it down on the weekends, and glam it up for more festive occasions.
Look #1: Out and About
Plaid is a great pattern to experiment with if you’re interested in print mixing. Try pairing it with stripes, polka dots, or animal prints. Style your plaid skirt with a denim jacket, cozy scarf, and ankle booties for a relaxed weekend look.
Look #2: At the Office
Tuck a feminine blouse into your plaid skirt for a classic and polished office look. A blouse with a pussy bow necktie or embellished collar means you can nix the necklace. Opt instead for a chic pair of stud earrings, and finish your look with a sleek heeled bootie.
Look #3: On the Town
Fall is the season of cozy knits and textured fabrics. Pair your plaid wool skirt with a velvety top and heels for a plush, luxe look. Baroque glitz and glamour is in this fall, so all the more reason to pile on the sparkling accessories!
