Outfit of the Day Inspiration: 04/13/2012

FRIDAY- Plaid and Skirts!
Plaid is a clothing staple for good reason: it’s interesting, versatile, and can be found on everything from socks to kilts.  As an avid plaid fan myself, I am always on the hunt for that perfect plaid shirt: soft, well-structured, colorful, and long.  When you find your own plaid perfection, try one of these looks for a fun and feminine way to style it!

Outfit#1: Rugged Feminine!
Personally, this look heavily evokes one of my favorites seen on the recent Dolce and Gabbana runway.  There’s a definite western vibe going on (which I am always a fan of) but you can choose to minimize this by skipping the cowgirl boots and braids.  Simply tuck your favorite plaid shirt into a poufy white or cream skirt and add a thick belt at the waist.  I would choose flats for this look, perhaps in one of the colors that can also be found on the shirt to tie it all together. 


Outfit#2: Casual!
If you are just going to be hanging out with friends and keeping it casual this weekend, this would be a comfy yet cute outfit.  Take a plain white dress and throw on your roomiest and cuddliest flannel shirt.  Add tights if you want more interest or coverage, and top it all off with flat boots and a few necklaces of varying lengths.  Glasses are always cute, and a great way to give your eyes a break from contacts after a long week of late nights.
