I’ve had my eye on all the lovely plaid that has made an appearance this Autumn / Winter but I haven’t had much confidence to wear it. I think it’s because I don’t feel like red suits me all that much and a lot of the mainstream plaid seems to be in this tone.
Luckily this season the plaid trend goes well beyond the plaid red shirt. A few weeks ago, I put together a collection of plaid items for the Well Plaid Moodboard Monday and I was able to find a large number of different coloured options in all sorts of plaid styles including a lot of monochrome which I love.
Philosophy Australia has embraced this variety of the plaid trend in their winter range and I’m excited to show you how a few of their plaid pieces can be worn.
1. The Plaid Coat
The Arctic coat (RRP $169) is mid thigh length and the classic monochrome plaid makes it a great match with almost anything. It’s a classic Philosophy piece in that it can be worn from work to weekend, from day to night and it would be fantastic to take travelling as it rolls up well and doesn’t crush. The coat is made from a lightweight blend of polyester and acrylic so would work well with layers in cooler climates or the perfect coat for Queensland winters.
2. The Plaid Tunic Dress
The Ferz tunic (RRP $149) features a gorgeous blend of blue-green plaid (my type of tones!) with black sleeves and black edging. It’s super comfy and snug and also has the fabulous added feature of pockets (so handy in a dress). It could be worn over jeans or jeggings but I quite like it with grey leggings and ankle boots. There is a cute tab and button detail on the neckline to give it the classic tunic style. Here’s a closer look:
3. The Cropped Jacket
The Mist jacket (RRP $149) is a classic piece which would be great for work or a dressy occasion. Again, the fabric is a polyester acrylic blend so it’s lightweight and very comfortable. I’ve styled it simply with black pants and a black top but it would also work well with jeans and boots for a more casual look. A bright scarf could also be added for extra warmth and a pop of colour.
