The Louis Reign Takeover & Why Plaid is a Timeless Fashion Statement

As Cher Horowitz would say, “You see how picky I am about my shoes, and those only go on my feet.” If Clueless took place in 2017 in New York City, then this outfit would have been Cher’s iconic, yellow plaid skirt-suit ensemble. This look has transcended along the ages. Plaid never goes out of style, and neither does our Look Book!

Christine Louis of the trendy fashion and art blog Louis Reign shared with us her style philosophy on the set of our autumn photo shoot collaboration. “My style is edgy with a twist. I love neutral colors and mixing vintage pieces with luxury pieces.” Her outfit screams just that. Contrasting red, dark blue, green, and black created a bold color palette; a color palette that is still dark enough to wear during the fall. While mixing a Prada cross-body bag with a plaid skirt allows for a mixing of luxury and the 90’s vintage-inspired pieces.

We love her contrasting muted olive-green fedora hat. Christine mixes yet totally achieves a match-worthy ensemble with the hat’s distinct green hue. It’s a color that’s not on the monochromatic spectrum but still makes it a bold accent. Without it, the outfit would be on the minimalistic side. Always go for bold. Anyone can easily pull off a quintessential autumn look which consists of dark hues. A printed pencil skirt, a neutral lightweight sweater, and a contrasting olive-green fedora hat creates an outfit perfect for the season.

Let’s talk jewelry. Christine’s earrings are a statement on their own. The pair of dangling gems with a diamond-shaped base draws the eyes to her face. Finishing off her look are her classic black leather booties—perfect for this time of year and practically a cold weather essential. Christine’s look is ideal for anyone who wants a polished and lively look from head to toe this season. Have a look you want us to see? Show us and tag us on Instagram.
