Plaid Shirts and Pencil Skirts - an Outfit Post

Posted by GirlieBlogger@Seattle Beauty and Fashion Blog

Happy Monday, fashionable girlies! How was everyone's weekend?

If you haven't noticed yet -- plaid is everywhere! Possibly because it's such a versatile style of clothing. 

For a recent event, I barely had time to change from mommy gear to business wear. So, I threw on a pencil skirt over the plaid shirt I already wore. 

The result? Instant dress up!







 What about you?


How do you dress up plaid shirts?

  9. I think that looks great. It's not a combination you'd normally think of together but it really works. Plus that outfit looks great on your figure, gives you a fantastic shape! I envy you!!

    I don't actually own any plaid somehow...I used to have one shirt but I never really wore it so I think I sold it on eBay?!!

  16. i love plaid!! so creative to mix it up w the pencil skirt. i love the look. i usually associate plaid w more casual looks, need to change my way of thinking and change it up! :D

  17. This does look very dressed up and subtly sexy too! I actually only have one plaid shirt... and it's more of a bright aqua with yellow.. farmer shirt that isn't exactly good for dressing up at all. I think I need to expand my options!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great belt! You wear belts so much better than I do!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lovely- admittedly I wouldn't have thought to mix the plaid shirt with the pencil skirt, but this is wonderful! I particularly like the boots you are wearing with this.

  20. Thanks for the sweet words on my post on Tiffany's blog!
    The only plaid shirt I have is a flannel plaid - I think I need to invest in one that can be dressed up!

  22. Ah Pencils skirts are my Favorite! Love this look, especially that belt!

  23. You look so put together, which is amazing for a plaid shirt which usually is thought of as casual! :)

  36. I can't even express to you how much I love this!! The pencil skirt and boots are perfect for dressing up the plaid shirt!

    I think I've only once tried to dress up a plaid shirt and I did it by wearing a flowy black skirt with it. I might try it with the pencil skirt, next. =)

  53. This is really cute! I think it really works because the color pallet of the plaid is more 'grown up'. It wouldn't work so well if it were more junior-y. :)

  54. Love this! You look so wonderful.. I never wear pencil skirts but lately I have really wanted to try!
