Plaid Jackets

Plaid is always a great addition to your wardrobe because you can mix in lots of different pieces, patterns and colors from your existing closet.  A bouclé jacket is even better because you also have texture to work with and you don’t have to worry if the fabrics match like you would in a suit for instance. This 3/4 length jacket is really easy to wear and my clients always want to cover the back side (if you know what I mean). You can wear  plaid jackets with a jean, a dress or pants and a dressy camisole. Think outside of the box when maximizing the wearability of your plaid jackets. These Vince T shirts are classic and come in several colors. This neutral tote goes with everything. Leopard belts and booties can be worn in so many ways.

I had fun styling this plaid jacket several different ways. It is so versatile and can go from office to dinner or cocktails. Adding a little black dress is an easy way to make your look seasonless. It always seems to be cold in offices and restaurants so a light weight jacket can give you a lot of flexibility when getting dressed. You can wear this all year round. You know I am all about pattern mixing so I added a snakeskin bag for fun.

As you can tell I really like mixing patterns. This small plaid is easy to work with and I could add snakeskin and leopard for some different looks. This leopard camisole is one of my faves; add a great black pant and this look would be perfect for happy hour or a girls night out. My gorgeous gold hoops that I wear almost every day are from my friend Claudia Lobao. I have linked similar here.

Well you read my mind. I’ll bet you know that I am about to say that this would be the perfect travel ensemble. You have lots of outfits without having to pack a ton of items. I need to remember that the next time I take a trip and need some variety and a small bag.  I have to confess that I pulled these looks last summer when I shopped the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale early with my fave Nordstrom stylist, Rachel Hepp. I was surprised at how fast the items sold out so I put off posting. So here you go!! I have linked similar items in most cases. Sorry I get so far behind these days. Thanks for reading and hope you are enjoying our crazy weather!! 70 degrees to possible snow this week. Only in Texas!! XO Debby
