Mad for Plaid



I've always been obsessed with plaid and this fall when buffalo plaid was added to the mix, it was no exception. Pairing this plaid top with a chiffon maxi skirt took the lumberjack look out of the equation and added a touch of glam to this look. I was originally going to wear this outfit on NYE but then decided it would be more appropriate for a casual night out. 



How are you styling your plaid? Let me know in the comments!

  19. Love the plaid shirt with the skirt, it looks great and warm at the same time. I have one plaid shirt that's a purple color and I've been wearing it with a skirt and tights, sometimes with jeans as well.

    I love this idea of mixing the plaid shirt with a maxi skirt. I don't know why I only wear maxi in the summer. I need to break them out for the winter.
