Mad For Plaid

‘Tis the season to wear plaid. Designers including Fendi, Saint Laurent, Prada, and Calvin Klein feature gray plaid in their Fall 18 collections, making it the standout pattern for the season. But plaid isn’t even the original name of this checkered pattern: proper plaid is actually tartan, a woven wool cloth donned with the iconic pattern. Different variations of the pattern were used in Scotland during the 1500s to distinguish one clan or geographical region from another — so basically, it was style with a purpose.

With my today’s look I mean business. I wore my plaid blazer over a short sleeve turtleneck, and paired it with wide leg pants. To create an edgy look, I completed my look with oversized sunglasses (which I am obsessed with) and an eye popping red bag. Check out my outfit deets below.

OOTD: The Kimono Trend

While it’s too hot outside right now, you can still play with layering. You just have to be a little creative. I guess layering is my thing. It’s all about incorporating lightweight fabrics in signature separates that will give you a functional, comfortable, summertime look. With long silhouettes tied at the waist, the Kimono proved to be an inspiration for a number of fashion houses this season. I’m wearing this black and white striped kimono over a black jumpsuit. It creates an oversized look that I love and makes a monochrome style, which is still a big trend. I’m obsessed with all things black and white. The simplicity of monochrome makes it a timeless classic. To complete my look I added chunky platform heels and a plaid clutch. 

OOTD: What I Wore

Wide-leg pants rule supreme, otherwise known as palazzos. Loose flowing pants were super popular back in the ’60s and ’70s. As most trends tend to do, palazzo pants have recently made a comeback. There is no singular clothing item more slimming than a well-fitting pair of wide black pants that hit right at your waist. The width of the pants’ hemlines only serves to make your waist look that much narrower. You can dress them up with a fancy blouse or with a regular tank top.
Here I have paired my wide-leg pants with a black top to keep it simple. To make my look more chic I layered them with olive green long airy jacket. Adding layers does not always mean adding bulk. Keep the fabrics light and mix up the lengths, and you’re well on your way to your most slimming look yet.
