For me, plaid is a must during the fall and winter and this time it’s all about classic plaid in black and white (and grey.) Because I love this trend so much, I have invested in a new wool coat, a vest and a pair of leggings/pants (my coat and vest has some red in it as well.) They work just as well separately as they do together. Although plaid on plaid might feel a bit intimidating, I promise it will look good as long as you stick to the same color palette on all pieces.
If I were to buy more pieces in classic plaid it would definitely be a blazer, a co-ord with a long sleeve crop top and pencil skirt, and probably a pair of earrings like these.
What’s so great about this outfit is that you can variate it depending on the temperature. On a really cold day, I would also have added a basic cropped long sleeve underneath my knitted top. With the vest and the wool coat over I’ll definitely keep warm. Another thing to add is a knitted scarf in either red or plaid, and maybe some earmuffs.
Thanks to the red details in my vest and coat, it was easy to complete the outfit with some color. To bring out the red, I applied classic red nail polish and lipstick. I also wore my favorite pointed black boots for some height. I kept the rest of the look simple by skipping jewelry completely. I’ll admit, I simply forgot about it at first, but then I realized I preferred the look without. Sometimes, makeup works just as well as jewelry or accessories.
