Again, if you don’t have a plaid blazer yet. Although I doubt you don’t. This blazer has been in fashion for a while now and good news, it’s here to stay for another year! Well until the end of autumn/winter 2018/19 for sure. We don’t know about spring summer 2019 yet. But I will let you know in October when I come back from Paris after the fashion month.
Back to the plaid blazer. So if you don’t have it yet, then get it here (on a budget) or even better splurge on this blazer over here (this plaid blazer costs as much as mine did). Ps. Don’t worry you won’t spend that much money at all. It’s SALE time! At Net-a-Porter too!
As you already know, I got this blazer a while ago from Erika Cavallini.
STRIPED SHIRT DRESS
My striped shirt dress comes from Storets. Unfortunately, you can’t get exactly the same dress anymore as I got mine last year. I told you I love wearing my clothes on repeat. Why buying if you don’t tend to wear it, right? Yet, I found few similar plaid dresses for you at Storets. So be sure to check the widget below.
Also check the next gallery, if you are looking for a legit striped shirt dress. The one with button front. Although truth to be told, you can’t really wear that one for work. Still, life shouldn’t be only about work, and you need a dress for daily errands too. Not mentioning drinks and brunches with your friends. You do want to be the chicest girl at the table, right?
HOW TO ACCESSORIES THE PLAID BLAZER
I bet you already know how? Especially if you read my spring summer 2018 trend report (here). This year we wear everything with a dangling belt. Yes, you read this right. Get a belt, secure it with the tongue buckle and then let the excess material to dangle. Or get a belt like the one I’m wearing. This one is from Slovenian designer Susnyara. And I have no idea where to get it now. I guess by contacting her in person.
Still, there are far more exciting belts out there you can wear with any dress. Although I must say, I love mine as well. Surely you know this, you save me wearing it just the other day with a denim jacket and red dress too.
Also, don’t forget to grab a bag and put on sunglasses. You know, your future is too bright.
As it goes for the shoes. I must confess I made a fashion faux pas here. And yes I will deny this if you bring it up again. But this plaid blazer and striped shirtdress would look better with chic slingbacks, don’t you think?
