1Piece2Ways: Glen Plaid Skirt

Before gingham officially takes over the season, I think we can sneak in our fall favorite print- plaid, one last time as our transitional staple. The print is still weather appropriate, and it pairs perfectly with the crisp spring air and lightweight sweaters. Plaid skirts, actually no, plaid anything had its moment in fall from runways to high street. Plaids are also more versatile than you might think. This eye-catching patterned bottom can go with almost anything.

If I have to pick a favorite type of plaids, it has to be the glen plaid, which consists of small and large checks in muted neutrals that often have thin stripes running through the material. Most of the plaids can be classified as either preppy or grungy, but the glen plaid tends to be more sophisticated due to its muted colors. It works great as a workday outfit when dressed up with a pair of pump and blazer jacket. Today I am going to share with you two of my favorite looks featuring plaid mini skirt, each look can be recreated to fit the climate in your city. Just a little teaser, I have also teamed up with one of my favorite bloggers from Vancouver, Samantha Sito to join me on this week’s #1Piece2Ways post, so be sure to check out her styling tips (HERE) on wearing plaid skirt at the end of this post.

You can dress up a cute plaid skirt with a bell sleeve sweater and a pair of chunky heels, you can also pair them with knee high boots if you’re still in winter mode. The joy of plaid is that it can go any style you like, from grunge to classy. In terms of colors, I’d like to stick with the color palette of the plaid print. For example, my skirt consists of brown, orange, and gray. So when comes to choosing the color of my sweater, I stayed within these color ranges to keep the whole look more coherent.

You can never go wrong with this outfit formula when comes to styling. Sweater + mini skirt combination is a classic one to beat! In this outfit, I picked a minimal crew neck sweater to go with my skirt, the sock booties make the outfit look more chic and sleek. To pop the whole look, I also wore a statement coat in a rusty orange hue to match with the plaid pattern.

A little sneak peak here on how Samantha stylized her plaid skirt. I love how she incorporated a western belt to add a bit of grunginess to the whole look. Don't forget to head over to her blog (HERE) to check out more styling inspiration from Samantha.
