I am a firm believer that there are no rules when it comes to fashion: I wear white far after labor day and mix my matches on a daily basis. But there is one pattern that is just perfect for winter (or fall): Plaid.
Dress: Tommy Hilfiger (Sample Sale Find, love this one) // Coat: Zara (my 2012 coat, see my 2013 one here) // Fur: Michael Kors, a cold weather must-have (similar) // Turtleneck: Forever 21 // Sunnies: Karen Walker (also here) // Boots: Bacio 61 (Also here) // Bag: Coach (similar) // Jewels: J.crew X2
Pattern-up! Shop twirl-worthy tartans:
I never though I would add a plaid party dress to my clothing collection, but when I saw this twirl-worthy tartan for almost nothing at the Tommy Hilfiger Sample Sale last month, I had no choice but to take it home. A sleeveless fit and flare is my go-to dancing dress, but when it's cold outside, uncovered arms can be too much to bare! I solve this closet conundrum, with a basic turtleneck: layer one under your favorite frock this season, pair with booties and tights to dress down the dress, or add a statement necklace and stilettos for a glitzy-party twist.
