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.
Stay with the colors of the plaid and/or neutrals
I love to pair pink with either white, taupe, black or brown. For this 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. I added a white black striped cardigan as the AC can be pretty chilly.
Do you have a “risky” piece and how do you style it? Follow me on twitter and tweet me how you style your plaid skirt.
