It looks like tartan is here to stay. The safe way to incorporate this look into your wardrobe would be to add a tartan blazer or shirt but why not be a little daring and try some plaid pants? I stumbled upon these adorable pair from Mango and was inspired to pair some looks with them. I will admit that wearing plaid pants can be a little tricky so I have created three different ways to rock this look. The first look is for someone with a more edgy personality. The addition of a cool leather moto jacket and Jeffrey Campbell booties to an otherwise preppy look gives it a London rocker, school-girl look. If your looking for a more work appropriate look try pairing the pants with a feminine silk blouse, a structured blazer, and pearls. If you’re a little self-concious about your rear, you can wear a long cardigan with a scarf and tall boots to provide a cozy and casual look.
Which look do you like the best? I would love to see what outfits you come up with so feel free to share!
I don’t know about you but I am so jazzed (pun intended) for the movie Gatsby to be released May 10th! If you have read my earlier post Harlem Renaissance, you know I’m quite obsessed with the roaring twenties. I just know this movie is going to be such a decadent masterpiece with gorgeous costumes, stunning cinematography, and beautiful actors (Leonardo Dicaprio). I was wondering if there would be a Gatsby-inspired designer collection of some sort like the movie ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ had, so I was delighted to hear that Gatsby costume designer, Catherine Martin teamed up with Tiffany & Co. to create a jewelry line paying homage to the movie and the era. This collection is so opulent and really nails the feel of the era
Stunning right!!!! Well, save up your chips people because these pieces are not cheap with the diamond headpiece at $200K! But we can all get lost in the fantasy of the movie for a lot less. Enjoy!
