Trends I love – Plaid

When I saw plaid shirts in stores I immediately thought of Clark Kent in Smallville who loved wearing those – especially in red. I also had a flashback of a blue plaid dress my mom made me when I was much  younger – back when plaid and jellies were all the rage.

If you walk into any store now you will see plaid tops, jackets and skirts everywhere in red, blue and green.

I got two plaid shirts from Mr Price the other day – one in red and one in black (yay for online shopping!) I usually wear them with a white tank top and some black/blue skinnies and sneakers. I’m loving the rocker chic look you can create with these tops – just pair them with leather or denim. I am also looking forward to wearing these brown boots I got at Woolworths today which I know will go perfectly with  plaid.

Two items in my wardrobe that I wear all of the time are sleeveless denim shirts I got from Mr Price. I couldn’t decide between a light denim or darker denim so in the end I bought both. The great thing about denim is you can wear it with pretty much anything – lace, aztec print, leopard print, leather or pair it with denim in a lighter or darker shade.

Change up your look with some accessories like a bold statement necklace and you can either button the shirt up fully or leave a button or two open. If you don’t feel like wearing any accessories you don’t need to either. You decide if you want to dress it up or dress it down.

Add some denim to your wardrobe and fall in love with it like I have!
