How I style a pink plaid skirt for the office

Plaid in extreme colors like pink or turquoise is risky

Every shade of pure red, or bluish red is something I can’t resist. When I saw this pink plaid skirt I had to have it. Well, plaid is easily categorized in the punk style direction and pink easily falls in the category of girly. Thus, this combination reads “risky”, and one has to be careful how to style it when one wants to go for an office appropriate look.

When wearing pink, make sure it doesn't look girly. #Fashionover50 Click To Tweet

Stay with the colors of the plaid and/or neutrals

I love to pair pink with brown, white, taupe, or black. For today’s work outfit, I picked the black-taupe theme and combined the black-white-pink plaid with my Burberry Brit trench coat, a black silk blouse, my black L.K. Bennett patent leather wedges and a white jade and black onyx statement necklace for an office appropriate look. You can find a review of the necklace at the link. I added a white black striped cardigan as the AC can be pretty chilly and the cardi nicely picks up the colors of the skirt, necklace, and shirt. The perfect accessory for this look so to speak.
