Plaid for fall is about as groundbreaking as florals for spring, yet I keep wanting more each time the fall and winter season approaches. In fact my entire wardrobe at the moment is either plaid or animal print. The plaid print never gets old, especially when you put it on newer silhouettes like this asymmetrical top. The top and skirt make the print feel fresh for fall, so style it together as one pieces or separates with a tucked in tee, sweater, jeans or faux leather pants.
If you’re looking for a few statement pieces to dress up your fall wardrobe, I have spotted a lot of ’70s style plaid. From plaid jumpsuits to plaid trousers, this is a fall look that won’t be going anywhere anytime soon and I ain’t mad at it. Check out stores like Zara, Mango, & Other Stories, ASOS & Boohoo for affordable and stylish plaid/check statement pieces
Another big moment for fall/winter is an asymmetrical neckline. Last year off-the-shoulder had its moment; this year, it’s all about the asymmetric neckline. Spotted on the runways of Carolina Herrera, as well as Zimmermann and Kate Spade New York, this slanted one-shoulder look perfectly highlights your collarbone and shoulder without displaying it all. This minor neckline tweak is all you need to elevate your outfits.
If you’re on the fence about off-the-shoulder silhouettes, this asymmetric neckline is a nice compromise. The slouchy, lopsided shoulder is effortlessly put-together; an “I just threw it on” vibe.
I paired my 70’s inspired asymmetrical plaid top and my 70’s inspired plaid skirt together to give it a dress vibe. BTW this plaid top and skirt set is from ZARA. I topped it off with one of my favorite pair of boots that are unfortunately sold out, but black boots are very easy to find this season. Check out these black boots from Zara here.
