This Fashionista shows off her unique style in an effortlessly chic plaid ensemble. She is perfectly prepared for a crisp fall afternoon exploring Bologna. It is a smart outfit for pictures, and will forever leave her stylish footsteps in Bologna.
Knotting the flannel shirt over her light blue denim shorts was a hip idea, creating a trendy, city savvy look. The high black socks tucked into this Fashionista’s black leather combat boots scream edgy, adding a boho flare. I also love how this Fashionista accented with black from head to toe, bringing a gentle consistency to her entire look — the black checkers on her plaid button-down, her tiny leather bag, wool beanie cap, high socks and leather boots. The black accent also makes the red in her button-down pop even more. And, of course, her woolen beanie cap is the cherry topping, completing the look. Not everyone can rock this style, and this Fashionista confidently sports it.
Plaid perfection can be easily imitated. Whether you decide to pair your plaid with a beanie hat like this Fashionista did, black leggings and high heeled suede booties, or with distressed skinny jeans, bangles, a headband and flats, plaid is a stylish option for fall. NastyGal carries a fashionable array of plaid fit for this autumn season. If you want an alternative to flannel, try a silk plaid shirt from Nordstrom. The pictured model is wearing it tucked into a pleated leather skirt — another unique option.
Wherever you are this fall, plaid perfection is hitting the streets… so be sure to join in on the action!
