Dressed Down Plaid

When will I ever stop wearing plaid you ask?? Let's regroup in 2020 and see how I'm feeling then!!


J. Crew: Lady jacket in Lurex® Black Watch plaid / Vineyard Vines: Ruffle Neck Top c/o / Mott and Bow: Jane High Rise Skinny in Medium Blue c/o/ Talbots: Horsebit Belt (old; similar here) / J. Crew: Laney pumps with bow in Black Watch tartan / Chanel: Navy Quilted Bag (similar here)

I totally get that not everyone dresses up for the holidays/tries to be festive. I personally am a big lover of jeans + a cute top (or sometimes just fun accessories) but I really have gotten into plaid this year. I mean, I've always loved plaid but I think J. Crew keeps making banger after banger and I just can't resist!!

But my plan for this year was to make more casual/easy looks vs wearing a dress to a million things. I feel like that's more of a general comfort zone for those reading than the former. So with that, I'm trying to "dress down" some plaid. Really dressing it down = wearing jeans. Jeans are easy, comfortable and a go-to for 90% of occasions. 

I feel like this is an easy look to wear to work (if your office is good with jeans -- if not, put on some navy slacks!) or a dinner date night out where you want to look put together but not dressed up. You know?? It's also super easy to take the jacket away and really be in my comfort zone of a white top + jeans.

This jacket is sold as a suit set but I think it's much more versatile than that! Plus the fact that it's black watch plaid helps give more of a muted tone to it (vs say, a bright red plaid pant ;) lol). It also comes in a red (still semi muted) plaid that has a more flattering neckline/collar. Since it's not as open it is more versatile with shirts underneath!
