Anine Bing called. She wants her outfit back.
Well, it ain’t gonna happen. As much of a #fangirl I am, I can’t give this one up. I freekin’ love this get-up…so much. I found these plaid pants at LOFT and couldn’t pick them up fast enough. Seriously. What a cool, modernized version of that classic pant we’ve all had in one iteration or another.
What I immediately realized, while standing in the dressing room (wearing the amazing pants in question) was that these pants…oooo these pants. They would be my new jean. Yep, I said it. I dared to utter that something other than my darling 501s could possibly be one of my everyday, totally wearable go-tos.
I could see them with everything. Well, not everything. Let’s not take me too literally here, people. I more so mean, the stuff I reach for on a daily basis…but usually pair with jeans.
I am so excited about these, I can barely contain it!
So let me take you on a journey. A journey where your eyes will behold wonder upon wonder…in the form of me styling these fabulous plaid pants several different ways, with a variety of things…all of which I am sure you, too, have in your closet.
Blazer + Graphic Tee
tee: Calvin Klein Easy Graphic Tee (TTS, wearing Small) – soft, fits perfectly…and love the bold, but simple graphic. I’ve been wearing it with jeans, too.
pants: LOFT Skinny Button Plaid Pants (Marisa Fit, TTS) – the style I’m wearing is cut narrow from hip to hem, but they also come in a curvier fit (the Julie)…aaaand they come in Plus size, as well. Woohoo, you magical pants!
blazer: old Banana Republic blazer – they have their Long & Lean Blazers now (love, but a bit pricey). The Something Navy Lapel Blazer looks polished, but also a bit causal…and its about half the cost.
booties: Linea Paolo Animal Print Bootie (TTS, wearing 9.5) – I was looking for a low heel bootie and came across these. Perfect. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to wear them with a lot, but I’ve been finding they look great mixed in with other prints, colors, etc.
Striped Pullover + Seriously Pretty Shoes
Moto Jacket + White Booties
Sweatshirt + Sneaks
Bodysuit + Bright Colors + Polka Dots
Cozy Sweater + Go-to Bootie
That Old Flannel + Moto Boots
Oh, wow. I just realized how much black clothing is in this post. This might as well be: How To Style Your Plaid Pants With Black. OKAY, let me rectify the situation by throwing this in…
