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.
Last year I bought myself a brown bomber jacket from Woolies and have worn it a hundred times! It really was a great buy. I wanted a jacket in brown to have a bit of a break from all the black in my wardrobe and when I saw it on the rack I knew it was the one.
A few weeks ago while browsing through Woolies I came across this gorgeous black quilted bomber. I immediately put my bag down and tried it on. It looked amazing and I knew it was my new jacket for winter.
The bomber jacket isn’t very feminine but luckily you can make them look a little more girlie when you pair them with florals, lace, dresses and skirts. Mine is a black quilted pleather bomber (another trend I currently love is leather!) but if that’s not your scene I’ve seen others online in soft floral fabrics as well. Most of the time I pair my jackets with a white tee and jeans and then either boots or pumps. This year sneakers are in, and there are some great styles and colours to choose from, so I’ll probably finish my outfit off with some sneakers for more of a sporty look.
These are some great jackets I found on Pinterest.
