Today's Everyday Fashion: Pretty Plaid

I love plaid, but I can't help but envision lumberjacks when thinking about plaid, and lumberjacks aren't pretty. So what's a girl to do? I took a page out of Harper's Bazaar book (literally) and decided to make my own pretty plaid look. The leather jacket and jeans may be "rough" but the diamond necklace and pointy pumps don't get much more girlie.

Styling tips: Try adding some feminine accessories to create your own pretty plaid look!

  1. Hey J!! Never been a fan of plaid..reminds me of my catholic school days but once again you've changed my mind! Shopping for plaid as we speak :-)

  2. This is an amazing look pulled off better by you (as usual). I am on the way to recreate this look. Thank you!

  3. Love this look!! Love the way you recreated it and I love the concept of adding feminine details to the roughness of it to make it an all around awesome look.

    Love the look of the rolled jeans too, I gotta try that with my skinnies!! Although I have to say it takes me back to the 80's when it was cool to "Peg" your jeans! Haha! :)

  4. I really love the look. Feminine but edgy. Thank you for exposing me to so many websites that I didn't know exsisted. I've really enjoyed exploring them, especially Boden USA

  6. love this look! I love plaid too & this a cute way to toughen it up.

  7. I would consider this shirt gingham more than plaid though. but I get the idea.

    Shayla, it is kind of like rolling your jeans in the 80's haha! :-) Never thought of that. Too funny!

  10. You totally look like a badass. I had a lumberjack thing going on recently too! Great minds! :)

  11. Love this look!!! So awesome!

  12. I was wondering what cut of jeans you are wearing. They seem too long to be a boyfriend, are they a skinny or a straight? Btw....love this look!

    They are skinny, but they are a bit big on me so almost appear boyfriend up top. Click on the blue "American Eagle" to be taken to the website where you can see them/purchase them!
