Plaids, plaids, plaids






Picture: 3. 1 Phillip Lim

I feel like I woke up one morning and all of a sudden plaids were everywhere. I don't know exactly what I've missed out on... clothes with plaids haven't exactly been a favourite of mine, even though I desperately wanted a red and black plaid jacket from H&M once.

I don't know exactly why I dislike plaids. Maybe it's because I associate them with awkward plaid skirts i used to wear when I was younger, or perhaps there's some other reason...

Anyway how do you feel about this trend?

I went ahead and made a few outfits with polyvore to convince myself plaids can be wearable. I would actually wear these...










And everyone is talking about the television show based on the gossip girl books. I haven't seen it yet, but I hear the actors wear lots of pretty clothes. I hope it airs in Norway soon... if not I'll have to download some episodes ;) Anyway, I found this screenshot of one of the actors when I was reading & For The Love Of Fashion today. A great way to wear plaids :)

The green and purple combinations are interesting. Maybe a deep forest green and a lucid violet would go very well, and some brown thrown in.hmmmm.....

Camilla said...

Yeah that sounds nice :) like a nice brown leather bag <3
Green and purple usually work very well together.

I understand, I'm pretty ambivalent about plaids myself, though buffalo check against unexpected backgrounds like teal and purple can be pretty cool.

Ooh I love all the combinations. I'm actually a big fan of plaid so you've given me new ideas on how to wear my plaid clothing. And your blog is wonderful. I shall link you =]

Thanks for all the lovely comments <3

Fashion Tidbits: The skirt is 3.1 Phillip Lim and has a $540.00 price tag. I'm sure you can find something less expensive somewhere ;) And the shirt is from wetseal.com
