Mixing Plaid with stripes is a fall tradition, topping it off with another texture like faux leather is an added chic bonus.
Good Morning Babes,
Fall is all about the layers, and pattern mixing. You will find so many plaid looks this fall. Everyone loves to style it, and it works so well in dressed up chic looks, or casual grungy looks. Plaid suites everybody across the board.
When coming up with ideas for outfits, I love to browse pinterest to draw inspiration. I find my three favorites and mix the outfits together. Sometimes, I sit in my closet and pull a piece I want to style. I browse what I have and mix and match different pieces. Mood boarding helps me come up with ideas as well. Take pictures and lay items out with different items to draw up a stylish outfit.
The Striped Top
I wanted a gorgeous black and white striped top in my wardrobe. A boxy tee that I could layer under and over for fall and winter. The Nest Boutique in South Jordan has been my go to place lately. (not sponsored just a fan girl). I love that they offer higher end brands like free people and items that are under $30. I often score really cute tops for $15-$38.
Stripes are a style staple. You can mix them with so many different patterns and textures. They go well will dots, animal print, and florals. They are a basic when it comes to pattern mixing.
Forever 21 is a great place for you ladies on a budget. I got this top several years ago for under $15. I style it in so many different ways. For such an inexpensive price I figured it would last only a few months maybe a year. It has survived a few years and a toddler.
Plaid is another fall pattern that can be styled in hundreds of different ways. I love that you can tie it over things like a striped tee or style it under tops and have the collar peek out. It really is a staple to have in your fall wardrobe
Faux Leather Jacket
Faux leather Jackets..my fashion love. My sister used to work at Rue 21 and every time she had a sale she was able to help me pick out some amazing jackets for me. Like forever 21, I did not think my jackets would hold up long, but I have had them prior to Aria and they have held up remarkably well.
Faux Leather is such a chic fall item. You can style a lot with them. Pair it with a dress, wear it with jeans. It really translates well, much like plaid. You see preppy girls to boho girls styling these jackets in their own magical ways.
I hope you love this outfit as much as I do. In a great outfit, a girl can conquer her worst fears..herself.
