Plaid Shirts & Dresses for Fall

I LOVE a bit of plaid and I think that a shirt. dress or duster is the perfect layer for fall…

Here I’m wearing the newest addition to my collection of plaid.  THe long shirt style dress is perfect for wearing over a tee and jeans as I’ve done here.  This dress is from Essentiel Antwerp + it is a relaxed fit and long for me at almost 6 feet tall so others that might be more suitable and that I like are…here and here and you will also find similar in Zara, Topshop and Urban Outfitters.  I’ll put some links in lower down.

I’m wearing with cowboy style boots, I’ve been livin in these ones from Massimo Dutti but I LOVE these here and also these beauties here :0 and here The jeans are old ones from Anine Bing, similar here and I like these ones from Topshop here The Vogue Espana tee is beyond price, lucky me, but any tee would look cool layered like this.  I’ve gussied up the look a bit with a belt from last year’s Zadig collection which was worn as a 3x around belt…I’ve done 2x tied it and left a long tail.  There were lots of looks like this in several recent Runway shows so look out for extra long belts hitting the stores soon if you like the look.

Here I’ve discarded the jeans but, by now we were being followed around by interested tourists  ;O, so I kept on the tee to avoid embarassing moments!

This close up shot shows my Ilinit bracelet and ring, a perfect combo for this look, take a look at the hand crafted glass, leather and silver pieces ….GORGEOUS!!!  You can also benefit from a discount if you apply BADASS25 at the checkout.  The bag is Zadig here and the guitar strap is an old one that I’ve added.

This look shows how versatile is the plaid, first layered over a pretty blouse and pants and then over a leopard shirt.

So there you have it folks, a few different ways to rock a plaid shirt.  I hope that these ideas will inspire you to take a fresh look at what you already have in your wardrobe before you bust your budget on a fall shopping spree.  Remember Cost per Wear, buy less but stuff that you will wear over and over again.  That’s it for now.  My apologies for a long absence during the holidays.  Back soon with more strategic buying tips.  Thanks for your support my lovelies, Hugs, Sarah X

Baby Boomer speaks for itself, yes I am a woman of a certain age ;) Why Badass? I have Rock & Roll in my DNA, coupled with some Punk Attitude and a (Lovin) Spoonful of Hippie Chic. Altogether BABB ;O The blog is not intended to be age specific, or indeed age appropriate! It is more about my style philosophy. The blog is to help girls and women of all ages to become more confident in expressing who they are through the way they dress. Mine are style tips and tricks based on years of styling, and an extensive knowledge of the fashion industry. My shopping advice is suitable for those with a limited budget, those who are strapped for cash, and for the lucky ones who have cash to splash. Personally I mix it up, marrying high street with high end to achieve my unique look. I hope that you will enjoy my new blog, Sarah x

  1. Totally on edge as usual Sarah. I’m wearing my buffalo plaid with red and white graphic tea quite a bit too at the moment. I like the two reds together and white makes it fresh.
    I haven’t thought of florals or leopard with it though.
