The perfect plaid

Plaid was major in the 90s. Who can forget the iconic plaid skirt suits worn by Cher and Dion in Clueless? Fast forward to the present and plaid has been resurrected in every colour and form possible, and can be worn be it Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn.  It’s a pattern that lends itself well to all seasons, but in particular I think it is beautiful for Winter.

Marc by Marc Jacobs plaid sweater, AG Jeans, Alexander Wang Bag, Acne Studios Rita Leather Jacket

The primary colours of this Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater is more classic than grunge (so will last the test of time) and I love how the colours really “pop” especially when pared with black.  The clever thing about this sweater is that it doubles as a cardigan adding to its versatility.  It’s an item that can be styled a number of ways but I think is just about perfect with a uniform of skinny jeans and a leather jacket.

Despite it being the middle of Autumn, the days have recently been unseasonably hot and humid.

Normally at the end of 3 months of hot weather, I have exhausted my summer wardrobe and I’m more than ready to embrace winter layering.

However, as the seasons transition in converse on the other side of the world, I have been barraged by summer outfit inspiration via the internet. And shirt dresses have been on my mind.

I had completely forgotten that I owned shirtdresses, so finding this gem by Jimmy D scrunched up at the bottom of my wardrobe was a win in my book.

Classic and timeless, shirtdresses should be considered a wardrobe staple. A quick update with a blue cotton shirt tied around the waist (I’m loving this trend of using shirts as accessories)  and you have a versatile outfit that would work for various occasions.
