I’m so excited to share this purple and black plaid with ya’ll today!  Awhile back, I posted a similar plaid (that really old post here) that I  just loved and wore all the time.  But it’s a much tighter fit then it used to be ;), and I really wanted to find a similar color scheme with a looser, comfier fit.    This one is probably the most similar I have found with the black background and purple and white plaid design. It also has a hint of red.  It’s a lightweight flannel material, so it’s going to be nice to wear in winter too.   It’s the perfect plaid to replace my old fave.

Since I love finding ways to dress up my casual items. I wanted to share a few ways I dress up plaid shirts.  For starters, the easy option – add a chic heel.  These black heels have been my ride or die for work since I purchased them.  I wear them about 3 times a week, and they are still really comfy.

Another idea for dressing up plaid is all about the accessories.  I picked up these gunmetal statement earrings recently.  I had two style ideas in mind for them – 1) Dressing up a basic tee and 2) Holiday earrings!!  Imagine them with a chic black sweater and black leggings for a Christmas party outfit.  Cute, right?!?!  I loved the way the gunmetal complimented this plaid.  I think it gave the look a little more of an edgy and trendy vibe.

Last, you can never go wrong with a great black pair of skinny jeans.   Such a simple and easy way to instantly dress up and add chicness to any outfit.  You may remember me mentioning these Hudson jeans during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  They were the pair I was waiting to come back in stock in my size.  Well they did, and I’m in love.  Ya’ll AG and Paige have been my go to denim brands, but this pair OMG so comfy for a skinny jean.  I’m going to give them a few months of washing and wearing, but Hudson may be making it’s way on to my list of must own denim brands!

Also, don’t forget it’s Style File Link Up day!! I can’t wait to see all the fabulous outfit inspiration! Scroll on down to check it out and bloggers feel free to share your latest outfit post!  Thanks for reading ya’ll!
