This fall, we’re mad for plaid, wearing this big bold print head-to-toe, broken up, at work, at play, and everywhere in between. The most amazing thing is its versatility. The trick? It’s all in how you style it! To prove just how many plaid outfits you can make from these two suits, we reached out to four of our favorite bloggers. They got the chance to style both the Connery and the Pastime to mix and match into two ensembles to show off their own, unique sense of style. The result? Eight must-have plaid outfits that will have you saying, “Checks, please!”
The Connery Trouser is a perfect plaid that go with just about anything – from white to pink and beyond. I LOVED pairing it with basic black in the Back in Black Jacket and Show-Off Tank for an easy and chic work-to-play outfit. The Apollo Earrings add a wonderful Midas touch, and the Interlock Block Heel pull together the greens in the plaid and the black top!
The Connery Jacket and matching Connery Trouser makes such a perfect outfit for the office! I have a full-time corporate job outside of blogging, so I will be mixing and matching both of these pieces often but my favorite is wearing them together! I paired the look with the charcoal Roll-Up Tee that not only has a chic turtleneck but is super comfortable. Add a pair of pumps, and you are ready to take on your work day!
I love the look of a good tailored suit, and this one is perfectly made! The fit of the jacket and pants is impeccable and very flattering. I chose to roll up my pants a bit and pair them with some chic studded heels to add a bit of edge to this otherwise classic look. I’m also wearing the V-Neck Cami in Black, which is such a good basic to wear under all of your favorite jackets for fall and winter! This look will take you from desk to drinks in high style!
Layering is one of my favorite things during colder weather, and the Pastime suit is so gorgeous as a set or worn individually. I wore it with the Aerial Cardigan and Reveal Tee to bring out the gorgeous greens in the plaid. The Pastime Jacket is a fabulous topper and adds warmth but can be removed too. . Wearing over-the-knee boots adds some sass to a head-to-toe suit.
I am so in love with the Pastime Skirt and Jacket! I decided to make my outfit more casual by pairing the Pastime skirt with the hunter green Cowl Pullover and a pair of ankle booties. The color is beautiful, and I love the sleeve scrunch detail that makes this chunky knit look so effortlessly styled!”
Plaid is such a huge trend this fall and so are blazers, so it’s no surprise I’m obsessed with this amazingly chic blazer! The fit is super slimming and it can easily be worn dressy or casual, proving its versatility. I chose to wear it more casual by pairing it with some of cabi’s fantastic denim and some edgy heels. This look would be perfect for the office or a fun night out!
