STYLE ADVICE: Black and White and Plaid All Over

STYLE ADVICE: Black and White and Plaid All Over

Spring has officially sprung here in New Orleans and I am so happy about it. Even as the weather is constantly changing, I assure you this one style staple is here to stay: black and white. There is no better combination to wear year round.

This Fashionista is debuting a brand new plaid skirt, perfect for spring. Small checkers are a great pattern for everyone. The shape of the skirt puts a mature twist on a classic look, and who doesn’t love a little ruffle? Something about the combination of plaid and ruffles makes me want to smile.

This Fashionista chose to pair her skirt with one of this year’s biggest trends, an off-the-shoulder top. It is a great way to add some detail without taking away from an outfit’s statement piece which in this case is her skirt. Additionally, it helps to keep you cool in the warmer temperatures.

To complete her outfit, she accessorized with a Rebecca Minkoff purse, some simple jewelry, and a great pair of sandals. Lariat necklaces are a great piece to have in your closet as they are flattering with practically any neckline. Her shoes also show off a big trend this year which is lace-ups. A comfortable pair of open-toe sandals is essential to a Fashionista’s spring wardrobe as they go with jeans as well.

This Fashionista’s look is great for a night out with the girls or Sunday morning brunch. I can’t wait to see what fun combinations she comes up with using this adorable skirt and classic color scheme.
