I admitted last week that I’m having all the feelings about my plaid shirt from Madewell. (Seriously, I can’t stop wearing it. It’s getting weird.) But it turns out my obsession extends to pretty much all things plaid. Or tartan, depending on what country you’re in. I’ve discovered that it’s an especially fun print to pair with leather and sequins. The result is an unexpected mix of classic and cool – and it’s a trio that’s definitely made for a day-to-night transition.
Anyone who’s seen my closet (or my music collection) knows that I’m not afraid of being super girly – and just like my BFF Taylor Swift, I love a feminine dress with a ladylike court. But for days when I want to tone down the sweetness, or nights when I want my feet to not hate me, I think a flirty dress, a practical trainer and a classic leather jacket are the ultimate trio.
I love the unexpected combination of wearing a sporty sweatshirt with a prim pencil skirt. Choose a slightly cropped top and this combo feels smart and sexy — or try a slouchy pullover for a more relaxed vibe. There’s your Sunday brunch look sorted.
I’m all about mixing prints in unexpected ways, and one of my favourite combinations at the mo is stripes and florals. If you keep the stripes thin, they can almost serve as a neutral – and they pair perfectly with this season’s beautiful blooms.
