One particular outfit and trend seemed to spark a lot of interest (and emails!), so I thought I’d share the look with you today… who loves plaid? I do! It’s a wardrobe must-have for fall and beyond.

Something I adore about having a perfect plaid shirt is the effortless style it can bring. Simply wear a tailored plaid shirt with fabulous jeans, chic sunglasses (these Prada sunglasses are my favorite, they seem to look fabulous on everyone!) and as always, this Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag works with everything (it is the best handbag you will ever own).

I’d love to know, are you mad for plaid too?

The Perfect Plaid Shirt…

Every girl needs a few key pieces in her wardrobe, timeless classics for easy-to-wear style – and the perfect plaid shirt is one of them! My other essentials include an amazing pair of jeans, classic black sunglasses (my go-to’s are the Prada Cats Eye sunglasses, they seem to look fabulous on everyone) and of course, my Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag (gals, if you’re going to invest in one handbag – this is it!).

Add a belt, black heels, gorgeous earrings and you’re good to go! Oh and I always recommend a vibrant lipstick to give your look a little something extra, this YSL Lipstick in #13 Le Orange is Kourtney Kardashian’s favorite – and it quickly became mine (I’m wearing it below).
