Happy Friday Y’all!!  I have to be honest with y’all.  I would have never categorized myself as a plaid person.  During the grunge phase in the 90s (yes, I’m that old), I NEVER wore a plaid flannel shirt.  EVER.  Maybe, I thought it was “too lumberjack” for me, and I didn’t know how to glam it up.

Fast forward to today and the Adam Lippes for Target collection.  He did a buffalo plaid in the most gorgeous way.  Seriously!  Neutrals like grey and oatmeal are right up my alley.  I love the oversized cowlneck and fringe on the sweater, and the structure on the mohair coat is fab.  It’s not lined, so I would consider it a light weight coat.  BTW, I would definitely size down on this collection.  I’m wearing an XS in the coat and sweater.

The jacket would be fabulous over this painterly plaid shirt dress and plaid pumps for a graphic head-to-toe look!  I’ll be wearing that look when my dress arrives!  Of course, I’ll post on Instagram when I have a chance.

For a “not into plaid” gal, I’m LOVING this plaid on plaid combination!!  When my mom saw it, she was surprised it was Target.  Just sayin’!

The Style Rx:  Layer plaids from head to toe with tone on tone neutrals like grey and oatmeal for a chic effect.  Tie the look together with neutral accessories.

What are your thoughts?  Are you mad for plaid or do you shy away from the graphic print?  And would YOU wear TWO pieces of plaid?!!

    I REALLY like that coat Sam, it’s beautiful on you, perfect as the weather starts to cool! :)

    I’ve never done plaid on plaid, but I don’t have many plaid pieces in my wardrobe to play with. Mostly scarves! :)

      Same here, until now! I have a dress that had a tweed/plaid skirt on the bottom but that was the extent. Although, I have seen some lookbooks where someone was wear 2 plaid scarfs. One was worn over a top and belted (could be over the bump) and then another scarf over it (like a regular scarf)!

  2. […] already hitting the stores, and it’s PLAID everywhere!  I told y’all previously that plaid was “not my thing”, but now I’m embracing it like my baby boy.  LOL! […]

    Finally! Even a plaid that I can wear! With my shoulders the usual lumberjack plaid would make me look and feel like one. This is all serious girl.

  4. […] try it on…  TOTALLY in my cart.  I’ve been a huge fan of plaid lately (see here and here), and this is a perfect layering piece for Fall and Winter.  The fur collar is detachable, so it […]
