Am I writing about “plaid”? Until this fall, plaid is a word that made me feel very unfashionable. Even good old Burberry didn’t do it for me. I just couldn’t even fathom the thought of that word and my wardrobe in the same closet. I guess you never say never because I am getting fashion fever writing this article. I am super excited to tell you all about the hottest and most affordable look for Fall 2017.
Yes it’s a plaid blazer. How can a plaid blazer get me so excited you ask? It’s the thought of styling this menswear inspired look in so many unexpected and interesting ways that has me jumping for style joy. I mean the possibilities are endless. All you need to do is go through your closet and think of what you have that is the complete opposite of a conservative plaid blazer. Remember it’s all about contrast.
This look all started with models. Gigi and Bella and all the gang were sporting them and then we saw them as the fave street style look at NYFW. According to Coveteur on line zine (www.coveteur.com) , the description “plaid blazer” has increased in popularity 650% in one year. The great news is that we can all afford a plaid blazer! Zara, H&M, Target (if you live in the US) all have affordable options for you.

Wear it with a pop of colour. Wearing it with orange, pink, red or yellow will up your blazer game. You can wear it with a blouse or a turtle neck.
Give your plaid blazer an edge wth a sexy bra top for a contrasting look and fun indoor wearable sunnies.
My fave look! Wearing it with shorts and black and white booties give it a total Chanel French girl vibe!
The conservative side of this outfit will pop against the Fall 2017 statement sock booty.
Pair it with your fave logo t-shirt.
A t-shirt and heels gives it an effortless yet powerful feel.
Over the knee boots or just tights will give you a runway inspired look.
Big belts are all the rage and will give it that oomph factor.
Great shades, a colourful fun t-shirt and boy cap will turn you into fashion perfection.
You get the idea right? Add the most feminine, flirty and fun pieces that are the complete opposite of menswear. Add a fur piece, red leather gloves or great layered pieces of jewelry and turn a plaid blazer into the most interesting look for Fall 2017. Do me proud lovelies and Stay Fab and check out Zara, H&M and Target (US only), to grab your plaid blazer and start looking like the street style star that you are baby!
