Should I jump on this trend......

Like many of you, I'm over my summer wardrobe and am looking forward to fall! I've started to do some research online regarding what are the it pieces for fall. With our new house purchase, I'm on a tight budget for my fall wardrobe. I went a little crazy last fall....thank you JCrew! I have all of the boots, skinny jeans, suiting, etc that I need. But I want to try to update with some inexpensive pieces like accessories and maybe a few tops. (And defintely a boyfriend blazer!....I love the current JCrew light gray boyfriend blazer they have posted in the New Arrivals section). One piece that keeps coming up again and again in my research is the plaid shirt......this is not the grungy shirt circa Nirvana 1994; rather, this is a more fitted tailored piece to be worn with skinny jeans and a great pair of boots. I love the fact that the shapes are body conscious.....I kind of want to LOVE this trend, but at the same time don't want to be emulating every 16 year old on the street! What are your thoughts on this trend??? Would you wear it??? Or is this best left for the tween/teen set???

Here are some examples:

Outfit ideas.....What are your thoughts on this trend? Yay or Nay!!!????


  1. I love the plaid shirt look, as long as it's kept classy. I've been looking around for one I really love but haven't found one yet. I don't want to spend too much on one either, mainly because I know it's a trend and won't be wearable for ever. Let me know if you find a good one!

  2. I think it really is all about the fit and what you pair it with. Could be a fab piece for you...

  3. I think if it's done in a sophisticated, womanly fashion it could work...but be careful as it's a little bit on the teenage hipster side, as you point out ;)

  4. yay! i like it if it is done tasteful..go for it!

  5. I'm totally digging the plaid right now.
