I really love the plaid pattern and really anything that it comes in. There have been several new plaid trends in the past year, and one of them that I am loving is plaid accessories. Whether it is red, green or black with grey hues, it is absolutely marvelous and I am excited to show you the fabulous accessories that I have found for you! Bags, gloves, and scarves – the whole lot is here today.
Similar to my “Booties, booties, booties” post that I released a couple of weeks ago, I am going to show you three groupings of plaid accessories and only the best that I have chosen to talk about! Plaid is such a staple in the Fall, whether you wear it in a flannel shirt, pants or even in an accessory. I love working with plaid accessories because they put the right spin on your outfit and take it to the next level! Most people associate plaid with Christmas, but I associate with the entire Fall and Winter season! Since the season is quickly approaching, why not break out the plaid accessories?
The Plaid Bag. Whether it comes in a tote, handbag or clutch, plaid is in for this season. Personally, I am in love with the red plaid bag on the right. I like the structure and the colour scheme…pretty much the entire bag (to be honest!!). These three gorgeous bags I picked are from (left to right) Kate Spade New York, Lauren Ralph Lauren, and Tory Burch and they are all linked for your shopping enjoyment!
Being that plaid is a pattern that you can mix with so many great colour schemes, in a bag, it can also be the focal point of your outfit. Pair that red plaid bag with a black neutral background, then BAM! There’s a statement. If you want to go fore more of a neutral plaid pattern, then the middle and far right bag are the bags to do so. The colour schemes aren’t so harsh and have more colours to pick up in an outfit. Plus, the blue clutch is adorable!!
The Plaid Glove. Gloves are probably my favourite Fall accessory. I have a nice pair of cognac leather ones that I got from my Grandmother last year. They keep me so warm in the winter time, plus mittens are often too inconvenient (or at least, for me). Gloves are a great accessory to step up your look. These three pairs of gloves I picked are from (left to right) Coach, Vivienne Westwood, and Halogen and they are all linked as well!
I like to mix up my glove wear between leather and cotton, depending on what kind of day it is. If I know that I am going to be using my hands a lot or carrying a lot of things, I go for cotton because it is easier fabric to move your fingers around in. However, if we are talking about style, than I always pick leather over anything else. Like I said, my favourite pair of gloves are cognac leather, but these three that I have picked out are right in trend. The variations of plaid (red, neutral and blue) are perfect for the Fall and Winter seasons and will keep you toasty warm.
The Plaid Scarf. Everyone loves a good blanket scarf, but these aren’t the only types of plaid scarves there are! Plaid scarves are probably the most common accessory you will find in my closet, only because they are so easy and quick to style. These three scarves that I picked are from (left to right) Style & Co., Lord & Taylor, and Garage and they are all linked as well!
You have the classic Burberry scarf that is probably the most attractive type of plaid out there (personally, one of my favourite patterns), the red plaid scarf and then the infamous blanket scarf. I own a couple of blanket scarves and they are probably the best types of scarves out there (I could go on and on about them…really)! I really love the red plaid scarves for the Fall/Winter seasons because they are so festive and really step your look up (especially in the Winter).
So that’s all I have to say on plaid accessories. They are really great to have, and even if you only have the scarf…work it! I have to say, the pattern is super fun to style and accessorize, and as we transition more into the Winter season, you will see a lot of plaid come out in trend. All of the items I mentioned are linked up here and down below…I have also included a few other links below to items that I love but did not feature! Enjoy!
