I’ve always loved plaid in the form of a flannel button-up, or as the lining of a jacket — but I’d never considered plaid pants until I saw these on sale at LOFT. There are lots of similar plaids out there right now (really like this blazer and this coat, for example) – and, in my mind, it’s such a quintessential fall pattern. This darker green/blue tartan is fairly subtle, and easy enough to wear with other colors (more so than a traditional lumberjack red plaid). For this outfit, I tucked in a silky chartreuse blouse and focused on lighter accents with the cardigan and silver pumps. Though I love unexpected pattern mixing (plaid looks amazing with a leopard clutch!), I opted for a structured leather tote to complete this “off to a casual business meeting” outfit.

My next post will show a slightly edgier way to style the same plaid pants. I know, I know — really exciting stuff. You’ll be mad for plaid. Have a happy Monday!

My last post focused on wearing more colors this fall, yet today’s outfit is all black and white. At least my dog Oscar was able to make a special guest appearance (he usually hates modeling and gets extremely grumpy…like a diva).

Adding a bit of a twist to the classic black and white combo, I wore coated black denim, a graphic tee and a wool hat (which I’m still not convinced I can pull off). Rich lip color (I’m wearing Black Ruby gloss from Bobbie Brown) adds a spark of color and some dimension.

I’m struggling through a super busy week, and very glad it’s almost over! Hope you have a great Thursday.

I always find myself reaching for grays and blacks when I pull together fall outfits, but there are so many rich, saturated colors to wear this time of year. Just as the leaves are beginning to change in Boston, I’m starting to look for more fall-friendly wardrobe items in a range of hues. I love these Rag & Bone red skinny jeans and decided to pair them with a silky gray/blue Equipment blouse. For a bright touch, I wore leopard pumps and carried an Annabel Ingall metallic bag.

Some of my favorite on-trend colors this season are burgundy, royal purple and emerald green — these rich jewel-tones can be styled with lots of interesting accent colors, and they bring a little life into a fall/winter wardrobe. I pulled together some wearable color combos to get you inspired:
