Plaid and rolling hills of foliage go together like “fall” and “style”. Today, I was dressing for a drive in the hills, a dip in the springs, and a breakfast of grits, mac and cheese, pancakes, and eggs (at least). These are the same pants I wear when I have long travels or long meals. Because it wasn’t cold enough to bring out my yeti-woman winter coat (you’ll meet her in a later blog post), I improvised. I draped my patterned shawl over my blouse for a plaid-on-plaid look.
As someone who shies away from loud combinations or multiple patterns, I must say, this was a winning combination for me. It is something I will come back to over and over. And when I (or you) do, there is a failsafe rule I invented to guide me –
#FashionRule: When you wear muted pieces, like neutral pants or strappy heels, you can layer like patterns.
How are you wearing plaid this fall?
