MCLV Style: Plaid

Fall means one thing to me this season – Plaid!

I just haven’t been able to get enough of it so when I saw this great zipper shift at Zara I just knew that it had to be mine.

After I brought my new baby home from the store I knew that there were going to be two really fun styles that I would want to try. First, pictured here, I wanted to have a go at the 90’s, grunge, Saint Laurent-inspired style that’s all the rage this season. Ankle boots, chunky jewelry, and a rock n’ roll bag were the finishing touches I settled on.

My next styling project with this versatile plaid shift will be a retro-inspired look featuring a vintage hat, Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag, and round-toed heels. A bit more ladylike and the perfect contrast to this more laid back look.

So this Looks of the Week round-up is my chance to highlight some of the fabulous ladies & gentlemen around the world that are bringing these fun prints to life.
