I love a little bit of plaid but I find it a bit of a tricky trend. I feel the garment has to be well structured and sophisticated. You have to be extremely careful not to go overboard and look like a construction worker (if that is not the look you are going for).

Sometimes it is fun just to have a hint of a trend in your outfit. My 'Romance Was Born' skirt is the perfect example. The blue plaid pockets and waist band on my metallic skirt are a fun alternative to an entirely plaid skirt. Plus who doesn't love a metallic gold, pleated mini!?

I teamed my skirt with a 'Cotton On' printed, tailored shirt. The colours matched perfectly with my skirt. As there was already a lot going on with several different patterns so my accessories were kept to a minimum. I just added my 'Kenzo' flats for a little bit of sophistication!
