The Perfect Plaid Dress

Bring out the eggnog , oversized sweaters and plaids… thats right ,baby ! Its WINTER! It seems as though one the leaves begin to fall off the trees everyone is in full winter mode.  Transitioning from warmer months welcomes deep, rich, and softer tones in fashion.  and of course oh-so-classic plaid.


The versatility of plaid may surprise you! Although our favorite blanket scarves and boyfriend fleece perfect the winter uniform , plaid can also add amazing texture to an outfit and in turn, elevate your look.

Knee lengthened form fitting dresses are MY JAM! In appreciation for the curves of women everywhere, there is something to be said when a garment lays just right to accentuate your curves and makes you feel confidently beautiful .This does is such  garment .  Keeping layers light in this temper-mental  Atlanta weather ; this plaid look is such an amazing piece for lazy days when you can’t bare to put on more than one piece of clothing yet you still want to look cute and put together.

OH YEAH… can we give this pocket in the front some major love! Can anyone explain the obsession us girls have with dresses with pockets? lol . I love this little front pocket which was surprisingly slimming in that dreaded lower tummy area that always seems to need some extra support.

Basically, Im loving this plaid kangaroo pouch ! lol


As a stylist, plaid is so much fun to work with ! Clients are pleasantly surprised at striking the visual impact and versatility of pieces in this classic print. Some that they even own their closets. Being a reformed print-aphobic and self proclaimed lover of all things black – I can understand the apprehension some may feel when trying to incorporate a print into your wardrobe. I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try some new things out ! You may like what you try !
