My Favorites:

Plaid trousers are so in this fall/winter, but I feel like they are so hard to style. I can not tell you how many pairs I tried on before I finally found the perfect pair! The key in finding a versatile pair of plaid trousers- that don’t give you a 9 to 5 is vibe- is slim fit. I found that when the trousers gradually become more fitted towards the ankle are much more flattering than wide or straight leg styles. Bottomline: it’s easier to style pants that just look better… surprise! 😉

Another thing to consider with this trend, is to make sure the plaid pattern doesn’t overwhelm you. So if you aren’t ready to take the plunge with plaid, go with a more muted print- like the ones I am wearing above and style with a solid color on top.

I paired these trousers with a fitted, off-the-shoulder sweater. By wearing a solid color, and exposing my shoulders a bit more, this was a fresh take on a classic style. Overall, if you find the right fit and look for you, this trend is not hard to pull off at all. Just add a solid top, accessorize, add pop of color, and you are good to go!

I am rounding up some of my personal favorites to shop below! 😍😍😍


P.S. I am sooooo in love with plaid, so you will probably be seeing this print almost as much as you see the color black on this blog… almost. 😉
