THE TRENDY PLAID BLAZER
Plaid blazers are one of my favorite trends of the seasons. You not only need one in your closet girl but I am also going to tell you how to style one. This plaid blazer is stylish and girl it fits good. The weather in Cleveland has been cold, dark and uninspiring. Just when I get excited about Spring weather here comes more snow and cold. The only positive is I get to get some wear out of my plaid blazer and other winter items.
This plaid blazer is from Forever 21. It was around $40 or less which was very affordable and I am all for an affordable find. The color of this particular plaid blazer is grey with black plaid stripes and black buttons. There are pockets on each side which are just for detail as they don’t open.

I decided to wear the plaid blazer with a plain black t-shirt from Forever 21. A simple style tip is to always keep some basic camisoles and t-shirts in neutral colors so you can pair them with different outfits. That way you can highlight the key pieces of your outfit without having it look too busy.
The jeans I am wearing are from Guess. I posted about these particular jeans in another post which you can read more about here so I won’t get into too much about them. I will say that these jeans look great with the plaid blazer and I love how they fit.
My bag is a red crossbody bag purchased from Amazon. It has a gold chain link strap and a bow on top with a gold accent in the middle. I got the purse from Amazon. Can you believe it? I searched for a red crossbody and couldn’t really find a style or perfect color red but of course, Amazon had exactly what I needed.
The red purse and the plaid blazer are the perfect color combo. Something about the grey and black plaid with the red.
Shoes are BCBG booties purchased last year when Dillards had their annual after the holiday sale. This is the first time I styled them but I am so happy I finally wore them. The booties are ankle length. They have straps across with silver accents and buckle. They are not too flashy and they don’t take away from the plaid blazer.
