Plaid is a big trend this fall

I love tartan or plaid and wool skirts. I still remember the pleated plaid/tartan skirt my Godmother Berta gave me when I was about five. It had extenders and I wore it until second grade. Later in life a plaid pleated skirt was always in my wardrobe. As a long-time reader of my blog, you may remember my pink plaid skirt. In this post, I want to share with you how to style a plaid skirt for the office in fall.

Heels are a must with a midi skirt for petites

Midi skirts can be tricky on petites. Thus, to elongate my legs I went with nude heels. I also accentuated my waist with a belt. I went for a nearly monochromatic look which always gives the impression to be taller than one actually is.

Up-dos are a do this fall

I went for an up-do with a knot low in the back. On purpose, I left some strands sticking out. It looks a little bit more French than going for a perfect up-do. Especially, in midlife, a “perfect” up-do can look matronly. Well, in my opinion. moreover, I like the strand to play with.

Hats are big this autumn

Earlier this season, I wrote a post about hats. There were hats all over the runways at fashion weeks for this fall/winter season. Thus, I topped the outerwear outfit with one of my thrift-store finds: A cute pillbox.

Outerwear is an outfit too

Never forget to style your outerwear! It would be a wasted chance to look great and to have fun and be creative. I added my pea coat. They are great to give you a waist. In case you want to invest in one, read what to look for in a pea coat to score a great one.
