Style Advice of the Week

Nothing reminds me of the winter season more than a bright crimson plaid. It takes me back to my childhood when I would anxiously await the day that it was cold enough to break out my plaid flannel PJ’s. I find the classic plaid print so appealing, and I truly believe it represents the winter season to its fullest. In fact, I’ve been on the hunt for plaid inspired pieces to incorporate into my winter wardrobe. With the holidays being in just a few weeks, finding festive pieces of a trendy plaid print will ensure that you deck the halls in style!

I spotted this Fashionista looking fabulously festive in her tartan-printed patchwork dress.  With frayed edges and a hi-low cut, this Rag Union dress incorporates an array of plaid patches for an overall rocker-inspired look. Due to the drop in temperature, this Fashionista layers her dress on top of a pair of dark blue jeans and a thick knitted scarf in a deep forest green, the perfect match to the various black watch plaid patches on her dress. To complete her look, this festive Fashionista dons a pair of buckle-strapped Matisse ankle booties, a crystal necklace and two-toned arm candy.

If you have been searching for plaid pieces to add to your winter wardrobe, search no more! Urban Outfitters offers a variety of plaid pieces destined for a festive ensemble. For a sophisticated winter look, try a plaid button-front midi dress with a pair of ankle booties, a black pea coat and a felt floppy hat. Or, if you adore patchwork-inspired pieces, mix it up with this plaid print flannel dress, black tights and for a bit of edge, a pair of patent Dr. Martens.

Spread the holiday cheer with classic plaid pieces and you will be sure to stay fabulously festive this winter season!
