Ways to Wear: A Plaid Midi

It’s that time of year when no one really knows what to wear anymore…Do you break out your puffer coat in the morning and sweat all afternoon? Do you dare show off your legs in a leather mini and chunky knit sweater at the risk of freezing and getting judgmental looks from strangers? For those fall days when the weather is unpredictable, you already know what I’m going to say… it’s all. about. layering. I love a good outfit that can be easily altered with the addition or removal of a single piece while staying perfectly on theme for fall.

The chilly weather is just starting to hit the streets of NYC (finally!) and I’m ready to break out my most oversized sweaters and fluffiest coats… but we aren’t quite there yet. Instead, it’s jacket and scarf season! For this look, I just shopped the Urban Outfitters sale (even though I shouldn’t have…oops) and found this adorable plaid midi dress. The side slits are the perfect accent to an otherwise simple piece. I layered the chunkiest, longest, brightest scarf I could find in my wardrobe- an oldie from Express but they magically still have it in stock—on sale in three different colors, too!!

Next on my layering go-to list is the perfect leather jacket. My favorite is from Abercrombie a few years back and it’s finally at that perfect worn-in point in wearing. I would definitely recommend them for jackets that will have everyone asking you “where did you get that?!” or trying to sneak a peek at your labels.

Last but not least, I was super excited to try out these mid-calf boots from Naked Feet Shoes. I love this length for fall and it has been majorly trending on the runways as well as my favorite blogger’s Instagram feeds. The best part of these shoes is they are actually comfy, even with the fairly large heel height. I walked a few dozen blocks in them with no issues!
