Back in my personal style post, I vowed to give plaid a rest and never turn back. To catch you up really quick, there was a period of time when I wore a lot of red plaid. It always came in the form of a button down shirt and I always felt like I could only wear it in the Fall with indigo-wash jeans and brown boots. I felt limited. It didn’t feel like me.
This Fall, I started to see a different, more classic plaid pattern (gray, black, and white) get the spotlight on and off the runway. I loved how chic and powerful it looked, and I wanted in. I did hesitate a bit to buy into the trend because I honestly didn’t know if it would be practical and versatile enough for my personal style. I never owned anything like it…or at least not according to my memory.
When I spotted this Petite Studio piece back in September, I knew I had to have it. It has a slight a-line flare, has faux fur pockets that are functional, and it hits me at the perfect mini length. The best part? It feels like me. As you can see in the pictures below, I can wear this with a hoodie and sneakers for a casual look, mix it up with stripes for something a little less casual, and pair it with my silver boots for a dressed up/night out look. This is my really long-winded way of saying, money well-spent.
So no more rambling on about how much I love this skirt and on to the visuals.
Look 1: It’s casual
Look 2: Mixed Patterns
Look 3: Out of this world

Look 2: Stripe sweatshirt (old from Zara), similar here, Rebecca Minkoff bag (no longer available in brown suede) but still available here in brown leather, and Repetto flats.
