So although summer is still hanging around, fall trends are upon us and we can all love on one of those trends: plaid. However, plaid is often thought of as masculine and some may not find a way to incorporate it into their wardrobe without the feeling like a…well, lumber jack lol. That’s understandable but making plaid feminine is actually possible.
The first thing that you can do is find feminine colors that compliment your skin color in this print. I personally chose the colors of pink, purple and turquoise. These colors create the most feminine but not too girly of a look if that makes any sense. The turquoise adds a nice balance. Next, decide what item of clothing you will choose in this print. I chose a button up shirt. The shirt itself is pretty masculine and continues to balance the feminine colors of the shirt. I decided on a solid color ankle pant that allows for my shoes to show. The solid color allows the shirt to take the shine and still compliment the entire outfit with another balance of color. Since my pants are ankle length, the nude color sandals that I am wearing (that match my skin tone) are able to show but the nude doesn’t detract from the “structure” of the entire look. I decided against a necklace. Side note: At first, I was going to go with a white chandelier necklace but I am going to save that accent for a future outfit with plaid. The bag is also seemingly masculine but is very appropriate for this look. Overall, the point is that small details can pull together a look. The plaid piece is what made this look more “feminine”. Let me know what you think of this look and stay “tuned” for another look Friday!
