Fancy Plaids!

Leave a comment

Plaids have sprung up on the Spring fashion scene! I wrote about an array of Spring trends in my previous post, however I didn’t talk about plaids part and how they fit into this Spring’s lineup of fabulous trends. This season plaids aren’t just for wearing when doing yard work. Plaids have a fun more sophisticated role this year. I love plaids because they take on a casual-glam feeling that I love when paired with the right accessories. I will show you a few different ways to wear plaids in a fun,stylish, sophisticated way.

Let Plaid Work for You

In an office setting a plaid button down can replace a basic white button-down when paired with more formal pieces. Pair a cotton material plaid shirt with a blazer and  skirt. Accessorize with a pearl necklace, and  watch. Finish the look with pumps.

Casual Day Out

When you are going out doing your normal everyday errands, it is easy to fall into a pattern of boring wardrobe. However it takes the same amount of effort to look put together as it does to look unkempt. A plaid is an easy print to wear during the day that does not feel too fussy. Pair a plaid top with boyfriend cut jeans and loafers. Accessorize with  a long silky scarf wrapped infinity style and diamond stud or cubic zirconia earrings. If you like more height pair with a wedge or pump!

A Night on the Town

If you are going out to a semi dressy dinner. Plaid can be the perfect dinner companion! Wear your plaid top with a flirty skirt and opaque black tights. Dress it up with a long strand of pearls and a sparkly  necklace. Mimic the same thing for your bracelets and add a glam watch. Wear black pumps to elongate your legs.

Hey Dolls! My name is Latrenda and I love all things fashion! I love incorporating new trends with the classics and making them my own. I also love cooking, redoing antique furniture, most specifically vanities and much more! I would love it if you followed me so that we can have some fun together. Below you can read about how I came up with the name Ruby Madison! What does the name Ruby Madison mean? Ruby comes from Proverbs 31 where the Bible is describing a woman of Noble Character: 10A capable, intelligent, and [b]virtuous woman--who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. Proverbs 31:10 The Amplified Bible Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. Proverbs 31 The Message Bible Madison comes from Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York. Madison Avenue is known as the “fashionable road” where the most well known fashion designers, hair salons etc. are located. Therefore, we come to the name Ruby Madison which stands for a fashionable woman of noble character and strength that looks good while navigating in her everyday life.© Whether she stays at home with her children or works outside the home or both; a Ruby Madison Woman can handle it all and does it all with style.
