plaid fad?

Hey, everybody! I am so excited to be back today to share the outfit I created around these adorable plaid pants!!! Never in a million years did I think that I would be one to rock such a bold and trendy look... but, right now, I'm loving it! And, yes, in case you're wondering, I am planning on wearing these to school, so we'll see how well they're received by the general public! ;)

One of my biggest tips when styling outfits featuring a certain trend is to have that piece be the focal point of the outfit and then build around that. Otherwise, there tends to be too much going on! Here, the plaid pants are the first thing that stands out! So, to accent their color and cut, I chose a black, 3/4 length sleeve sweater up top and a pair of black, suede pumps. Add an elegant, camel handbag and a dainty gold necklace for extra chic factor, and you're good to go! By adding minimal accessories, you can morph a completely trendy outfit into a more classic and wearable look (that you hopefully won't cringe at in 10 years ;).

Additionally, these pants have dragged me out of my jeans rut (thank goodness!). As the weather gets a bit chillier, I tend to gravitate towards wearing solely jeans as bottoms for a solid four months (aka all of winter!!) because they are basic and will match with anything. However, I am definitely appreciating a deviation from the navy monotony that is my jeans collection. These fresh and festive plaid pants have breathed some life and spirit back into my fall/winter wardrobe!
