ALL IN THE DETAILS: All About That Plaid

Winter has started to hit us hard in upstate New York, with temperatures dropping into the teens. The frigid weather makes it necessary to bundle up. However, this does not mean style needs to be sacrificed. There are a few more months of winter ahead, which means it is important to think about how to maintain a fashionable look throughout the season.

This Fashionista managed to create a polished and standout look despite the cold conditions. She wears a very classic and neutral outfit with the solid black peacoat, dark wash jeans and grey boots. The element that makes her outfit distinct is the plaid scarf draped in front of her coat. Plaid is one of those trends that never go out of style, especially when worn on winter accessories. Scarves are a fantastic way to mix up your winter wardrobe and add personality to a solid colored coat. A plaid scarf adds a preppy twist that enhances your look while also keeping you warm.

Recreate this look with a pair of dark wash jeans, peacoat, gray boots and finally a cozy plaid scarf (green or navy). Plaid can also be incorporated into your look in other ways such as through a beanie or gloves. There are so many shades and options for plaid that everyone can find something they love!

How To: Winter is here but that is no excuse for drab dressing! Standout from the crowd by wearing different winter accessories over a more basic coat. Simply wrap yourself in a plaid scarf to add a timeless and fashionable element to your look.
