STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Wear Plaid, Be Rad

Nothing says fall like being clad in plaid. There is something so autumnal about wearing this timeless pattern when the leaves start to turn and the air gets chilly. This Fashionista knows just how to incorporate plaid into her fall wardrobe.

I am obsessed with this outfit to say the least. Letting burgundy be the pop of color and keeping everything else black was a fabulous choice. The H&M pleated skirt keeps the look in check (literally). Paired with a black bow-front blouse, ALDO ankle boots, an H&M bowler hat and Stella Rittwagen satchel, this outfit can take you anywhere from class to an internship, day or night. It’s edgy and classic all at once. What more could you ask for?

This really is the perfect plaid skirt. The colors are just right and the pleats add the right amount of flounce and schoolgirl-chic. You can dress it up like this Fashionista has done here, or wear it with a cozy sweater, knee socks and sneakers for a more casual look. There really is no wrong way to style this kind of skirt. Wear it with your favorite pieces and you’ll slay the street style game all fall.

Aside from the skirt, my second favorite piece in this outfit is the black statement satchel. I mean, look at it; it’s perfection! The bag means business. It is the perfect completer piece for this smart and stylish look. Nothing is more RAD than wearing plaid!
