The very first thing that comes to mind when I think of back-to-school wardrobe essentials is PLAID! I’m totally mad for plaid! The all-American plaid shirt, grunge era plaid skirts & 70’s inspired plaid dresses — plaid is the ultimate fall staple! Not to mention, completely comfortable and always on trend!
We are all prone to pairing our favorite tartan button-downs with a pair of jeans, but why not swap out the jeans for a jean jacket & opt for an adorable black faux leather skirt instead?
This is an easy way to give an otherwise classic, boyish shirt a more feminine & slightly edgier flair!
I’ve been experimenting with not making my outfits so matchy-match and it’s become my favorite past time. With this outfit, I focused on breaking up the colors to give the ensemble a little more life and make it a little more interesting to the eye.
A denim washed cropped jean jacket over a primarily white and red plaid shirt, tucked into a pleated black faux leather skirt paired with nude western inspired booties — this may be one of my favorite fall outfits to date!
