How to mix plaid like a pro

Are you a fan of plaid? Here are some tips for mixing plaid patterns like a pro!

Mix similar colors. Here I mixed purple plaid and pink plaid. Colors that compliment each other.

Go bold! I also chose bold bright colors for a brilliant color scheme that stands out.

Layer. Take an accessory like a scarf or poncho and layer it over another plaid.

Gingham and plaid. Mix gingham and plaid. A simple gingham check with a more complex plaid pattern is a great way to layer squares upon squares.

Sport a plaid coat. Wear a plaid coat over plaid pants, a dress or a top.

Opposites. Wear opposite color patterns, For example, if your outer layer is red with black, make the inner layer black with red.

Coordinate color schemes. Match a coat and hat in the same pattern of plaid for a matchy, matchy plaid look.

Mix different types of plaid. Try mixing a plaid with a smaller lines with a bigger plaid pattern. Complimenting your color scheme.

Tie in with a neutral shade. Make sure to use different types of plaid tied in with a good neutral shade as a baseline so the eyes don’t go totally crazy.

Keep it simple and have fun with it.

Blossom print in a field of blossoms

Spring is coming. Yeah! (I say, after it was just snowing yesterday.) So is the Coronavirus. Boo. However, I found a wonderful field of flowers to jump in a couple of weeks ago. So I jumped. For joy. In the middle of my sorrow. It’s okay to find joy where you can when grieving. And that’s what I did. I see a field of flowers. I jump. I may have been crying a few days later and missing my mom, but it’s all good. I jump while I’m able to.

This top is perfect for spring. Floral, peach and fuchsia with a bow at the top – what’s not to like? I found both the blouse and corduroy leggings at Ross, so you know I got them at a very good price. Since it’s still cold out, I had a gray fringed cardigan on as well. My bright pink Kate Spade New York handbag was another splash of color to an already bright outfit. Just right for an early spring day.

 

 

Everyone stay healthy and well out there. God help us all.
