Get the Look: Plaid on Plaid

I love plaid anything, but I always thought that plaid skirts can be a little hard to pull off when you're in your 20s.  They either look too schoolgirl-like or too matronly – but there is one way to fix that (as proven by Olivia Palermo): add more plaid!


Pairing a plaid skirt with a plaid shirt, makes the school-girl staple look effortless and stylish. There are however a couple of DOs and DON'Ts:

Go matchy matchy, you want a contrast!

Repeat colors!
The secret lies in matching the colors, and not the patterns. If your skirt is blue with hints of red, like Olivia's, reach for a primarily red shirt.

Get a skater or a pleated skirt,  you'll look like you're 12 (or going to a costume party).
Simple minis and pencil skirts are your friend!

Keep it simple on the bottom,  that means nude or black flats.
(Or pumps if you're opting for a longer skirt.)

OP Plaid

Are you a fan of plaid on plaid? 

Peace, Love, and Lobsters
