Plaid is a huge trend this fall, so when it came time to choose my outfits for New York Fashion Week, plaid seemed like a no-brainer! When I spotted this plaid skirt by ALC, I knew it was not only perfect for fashion week, it would be ideal for my fall wardrobe.
Since the plaid has black, putty, and grey in it, I decided to pick up the black for my top. It felt “New York-ish” to me. Here at home in the suburbs, I would prefer to add a pop of red to the plaid in the skirt for a top. Now, to find the perfect red top for this skirt. . .
The sleeveless top is perfect for early fall weather. When the weather starts to cool down, the addition of a leather jacket is all this ensemble will need to transition to cooler weather. This top will also look cute with flare jeans and boots for casual fall days.
I wore this outfit on day four of New York Fashion Week in September. This was a busy yet fun day. I started the day off with Fashion Shenzhen, then attended RewardStyle’s Rooftop Party, then I had FTL Moda, Georgine, Vivienne Hu, and Art Hearts Fashion. Stay tuned for my coverage of these shows!
This outfit was easy to move in; making it ideal for a busy day of running around mid-town and lower Manhattan. The skirt was comfortable and cozy. I can imagine it in cooler weather with boots and a cozy, ivory sweater. Now, we just need some cooler weather here in the Bay Area!
