Plaid is perfect to mix with another print, but lets try to wear plaid on plaid.
I like a classic look. And I like contrasts in my outfits. Funny as I think about it. I have always liked a classic elegant look, and I have also worn it since I was a teenager. But with a contrast. For example: I’ve always been a hard rock and new wave fan. But if you loved hard rock back then, I’m talking about the time I was 15/16, you would wear short black leather skirts or jeans with a tee from your favorite band, Metallica was very popular and Ozzy of course. And always a leather jacket.
Well you didn’t see me in jeans then, I hated jeans from early on. And I found a leather skirt ordinary. So I wore pencil skirts, because I loved that. But with a leather jacket! So I fell out of tune in the middle of the group of hard rockers I was dealing with at the time. I was not interested, I wore what I liked! But that shows that at that time I was already in love with contrasts, I loved hard rock, and elegant, classic clothing.
Classic skirt with a twist
Today I also wear such a wonderful classic skirt. A plaid pencil skirt. I think I always have had a plaid pencil skirt in my closet. They are so elegant and I used to wear those always with a black top and black boots. Very predictable, but there is nothing wrong with that I believe. One should wear what one likes! But I bought this sweater, I need more sweaters I am cold all the time. And at first I thought that would look good on my mustard pencil skirt. And then I saw this skirt and I wanted to try plaid on paid.
So this is how I wear plaid on plaid
I like this combination because although it’s print on print, it isn’t to crazy. That’s because the same colors are in the skirt and sweater and only one other brighter color. Of course these boots are the perfect ones for under a pencil skirt. Sassy and sexy, can you hear my whip popping! Lol.
I am wearing black accessories and a huge statement black ring from a antique market in Lewes. The skirt high waist which is perfect for me as I have a tall upper body.
