Unexpected Fashion Companions: Plaid x Sequins

Unexpected Companions / November 26, 2014

Plaid has long been a classic in wardrobes and a go-to come fall. We love it’s versatility – what other print is a staple in looks ranging from preppy to grunge worthy?

For fall, Thakoon and Altuzarra gave traditional plaids a fresh update. Oversized prints in vibrant hues were seen all over the fall runways.

In this week’s Unexpected Fashion Companions, we’ve decided to shake things up by pairing oversized plaids with sequins for an unexpected combination that is fun and anything but stuffy.

Why It Works:

The relatively monochromatic palette keeps this look from being too busy. ChicNova’s buffalo plaid coat offers a boxy silhouette and a great contrast to the fitted separates.

We love the incorporation of different colored sequins, which is why we’ve chosen Phillip Lim’s sequined skirt. Add Topshop’s cropped sweater to keep your look young and fresh.The overall result is more chic and less Dynasty.

Saint Laurent’s creepers add a dash of masculinity to keep everything from being too sweet.  Be sure to use accessories sparingly by adding black opaque tights and a Eugenia Kim beanie to round out this look.
