We have all been hearing how big plaids are for this Fall. Now you may have been tempted to run out and buy something new, but if you are on a budget this isn't going to happen! A much better idea is to interpret what you already have in your closet to make it look new and on trend. I am going to show you how I do it starting with this plaid top I bought last Summer.
How to make it fresh for Fall? I started by pairing it with a denim pencil skirt, bright tights and a cardigan. Both Fall trends gave it a new look.
The classic wool plaid skirt, I made this years ago. This can be a big yawn. Paired here with platform boots and a short sleeve mock-turtleneck it looks anything but dowdy!
Plaid pants in a high waisted cut I bought on ebay about three years ago. Topped with a little sweater vest this bridges the plaid and menswear trends quite nicely. I used a velvet ribbon as a tie to complete the look.
Three key pieces for three unique, on trend looks and the only new items were the sweater vest I bought on clearance for $4.99 and the stockings for $2.98. Not bad for a day's work. Now look in your closet and see what plaid items you can restyle!
