Giraffe with plaid – master an unexpected great look

Styling a plaid sheath dress

Here I am wearing my plaid sheath with my giraffe cashmere sweater under the dress on a day with snow showers (see the snow flakes in the photo below). This sheath dress was one of my go-to pieces this winter. I styled it as a variation of the mad man look, with a burned red cardigan, Rock’n Roll style), while the giraffe sweater was a little underused.

Pair the outwear to what shows of the outfit underneath

As it is still below freezing I wore my Burberry London motorcycle coat with a head band, and my Harley Davidson booties. There is still a while to go until spring will spring in Alaska.
