I found this plaid tweed skirt back in my closet when I needed something pre-loved for the The Thrifty Six series. I had actually forgotten about this skirt a bit. This was before I completely turned my closet upside down and rearranged it into basics and keypieces. Otherwise I would have seen it earlier. Have you ever heard of the Lonneke method? She is a Dutch stylist. And works according to basics and keypieces. Very interesting. And satisfying I might add.
My history with this plaid tweed skirt
The funny story of this skirt is that when I was still working, in a trendy women’s fashion store, I bought this skirt. I have told it before, I was a branch manager and got a 50% discount on the clothes. Well you may have some idea how much of it went home every week. But at one point my skirt was worn out and I got rid of it. By the way, this was more than 10 years ago. I haven’t been working for eight years. But last year I came across this plaid tweed skirt again on the second hand site and I bought it immediately!
Styling a plaid tweed skirt
But I’ll be honest, I’m going to sell this one! I just don’t think the skirt suits me that much anymore. Too short anyway. But I had a lot of fun with it so it is not that bad.
I wear it here with a cool biker jacket and a off white ruffled blouse and suède boots. For some reason I always wear these wedged boots with this skirt. Probably because the boots are suède and that suits better with the thick tweed of the plaid skirt in my head. And because the plaid tweed reminds me of Chanel tweed (if only) I am wearing a lot of pear necklaces!
Guess what! Only when I finished this post I found out I showed this skirt before, with the same story about it, lol. Ah well, you can decide which styling is better then! And I didn’t wear the wedged ankle boots there!! But I did had that Chanel feel.
