Today’s outfit comes to us from Jean at Extra Petite.com. She’s one of my favorite bloggers (so stylish) and one of my favorite people. I think her take on Tartan plaid would be perfect for a casual Friday or a relaxed holiday dinner. Here’s how to recreate it on your own.
One. If you like a cotton trench for spring and fall, you’ll love a wool trench for winter. This Uniqlo number is great for the price. I also like this Express trench with a fit-and-flare shape, and this London Fog wool trench is a classic. Plus-size? Try this Kenneth Cole wool trench.
Not feeling the trench? Swap it out for this duffle coat from Uniqlo.
Two and Three. I love the mix of the plaid shirt with the pine green sweater. If you’re looking for a less expensive sweater, J.Crew has a classic cable that fits the bill. I also like this chunky Topshop sweater.
For the shirt, Jean wore her boyfriend’s shirt. Since I don’t have a man whose clothes I can swipe, it’s time to go shopping. The Land’s End shirt is by far the best one I found. It also comes in plus and petite.
Four. Jean is wearing the Sloan pant from Banana Republic, but these skinny trousers from J.Crew Factory are a great choice for under-$50. If you want something that suits the cold weather look better, switch out the twill pants for corduroys. And, of course, there’s always denim.
Six. The bag in the photo is a classic Coach flap satchel. They no longer make this style in navy–though they do make a smaller cross body bag— so I thought I would select this Dooney bag instead. Should you want something less expensive, try this Zara combination suede and leather bowler for $79 or this Erin messenger-style bag from Fossil.
Seven. Jean isn’t wearing jewelry in the photo, but I thought I would add some classic pieces to complete the set. I like the oversized watch to continue the theme started with the man’s shirt. I also like the simple hammered studs from Gorjana and the ring set. Looking for a cheaper set of rings? Try these pentagonal stack rings from Macy’s for $13.
