The Fashion Magpie Gray Plaid Trend 5

Glen Garry Glen Plaid.

I mentioned this just yesterday, but if you’re looking for the ticket to fall fashion-forwardness, look no further than gray glen plaid.  I love this borrowed-from-menswear trend, especially when paired with either super soft cashmere or super distressed denim.  (Otherwise, it can read boxy and literal.)

Below, my top picks for nailing the look:

AN AFFORDABLE GRAY PLAID BLAZER (OR SPLURGE ON THIS)

A WORK-APPROPRIATE SHIFT (LOVE THE PUFF SLEEVES FOR A LITTLE INTEREST!)

A STATEMENT-MAKING OVERCOAT (UNDER $120! — GET THE LOOK FOR EVEN LESS WITH THIS NORDSTROM FIND!) — IMAGINE IT LAYERED OVER A CASHMERE CREW AND WHITE JEANS!  SO ELEGANT!

TIBI SLINGBACK MULES (THESE HAVE SUCH A GREAT ARCHITECTURAL QUALITY TO THEM — THEY LOOK LIKE CELINE!  I ALSO LOVE THE POP OF EMERALD; IMAGINE WITH DARK WASH JEANS!)

OMG THESE (AB CAN DO NO WRONG)

A DRAMATIC-SLEEVED DRESS (WORN WITH BLACK TIGHTS AND BIRMAN BOOTIES, I MAY EVEN BREAK MY OWN RULE FOR THIS!)

A STATEMENT TOP!

THIS HEATHERED COAT WOULD LOOK EPIC LAYERED OVER ANY PLAID PIECE!

P.S.  Something about this look makes me want to buy a new pair of coated skinnies in jet black and the perfect slim-fit tee.

P.P.S.  Not gray plaid, but this is darling!  COME ON with that scalloped edge!

P.P.P.S.  Look for the small kindnesses and the flood of thoughts that come to mind when I hear the word “lowbrow.”

  1. You would look so great in a short plaid dress with black tights! You are still so young- dont worry about dressing “your age” too much yet – when you are 50 maybe…..
