Just as the drop in temperature symbolizes the change of seasons, so does the appearance of plaid in stores ever where. We are back with another edition of 30plusstyle and we are discussing, you guessed it, plaid! Since plaid can be both trendy and classic we have decided to do a $30 challenge to show you how to be on trend without breaking the bank.
I have told you my lovely readers that I wouldn’t categorize myself as a budget shopper. I do however shop when there are coupons, deals and promotions going on. For this challenge I pulled out this Lane Bryant glen plaid skirt that I got on clearance a few years back and I had never worn it. This skirt was less than 20.00 and I was so excited when I bought it. I love glen plaid, the way it blurs the line between masculine and feminine opens the door for a ton of styling options. . With this look I decided to play up the masculine side of this print, pairing my skirt with a boyfriend blazer, graphic t and pump.
If you are unsure about plaid or don’t know how to wear it, my best advice is to start with something small, pair it with a basic opposing item and create a look that you are comfortable with. As with any trend don’t invest a ton of money in your item until you are sold on the trend. So how do you feel about plaid? Do you love it? Do you hate it?
