Seriously, is there anything more impossibly chic and versatile than a plaid blazer? It is simultaneously both Blair Waldorf and modern day Serena Van Der Woodsen (we mean literally — didn’t you see Blake Lively‘s Menswear-inspired whirlwind tour?). The fashion girls of the world have borrowed the plaid menswear button-up from Sherlock Holmes and have made it their own. Mark our words — you’re going to want to wear this IT item which was a big storm in 2018 and is still a hit in 2019 to any occasions! Here are the 3 scenarios we have come up with:
A plaid blazer can actually double as a really trendy top when you button it up! Make sure the blazer is just a little oversized and the jeans are slim fit and skinny at the ankle to balance proportions. Pair with your favorite booties (or stilettos!) and voila! Your perfect 9-5 outfit is done.
Bring your plaid blazer to any event with a chic slip dress and make it weather-appropriate with Over-the-Knee Boots. This can also work with any sweater dress for colder-weather occasions.
Good news for those of you who are already over the winter chill. The staple is actually the perfect way to dress up a casual set without too much effort. Cut-off jean shorts, a tee (plain white or your favorite graphic), and classic work shoes are the perfect brunch look with your friends on the weekend.
