Last week I showed you my new plaid skirt (here). Plaid is a bit risky when you want to wear the item to work as it easily can read weekend, California casual, western look, or punk.

Thus, when you want to buy a plaid skirt for work make sure you inspect the skirt thoroughly. Look whether at the darts the plaid pattern meet exactly like they do in the photo above. Only then you should fork over the money. If the plaid pattern is offset it looks cheap and inappropriate for the office. No matter how many percent it is off, it is not a good deal (see here).

Also make sure that the majority of colors are neutrals or at least colors that are acceptable in a work place – read the major color should not be any hue of neon. In the case of my skirt, the black and white fully do the trick and fuchsia/pink is acceptable in most office environments as long as it has no neon hue to it.

Today I present you another way of styling this plaid skirt for the office. I paired it with a polka dot cardigan as a top and my L.K. Bennett patent leather black wedges. I added a belt to add some interest and polish. How do you wear your plaid?

Don’t forget: tomorrow the second post of my new Wednesday series Bites and Bits of Fashion History goes up at mid night Alaska Standard Time. If you missed the first one you can find it here.
