Plaid is a huge trend this fall 2019 season, so I knew it was something I wanted to rock at New York Fashion Week. I didn’t want to do wear a menswear look, or attempt to wear plaid pants; which make me look fat-let’s just admit it. So, when I spotted this comfortable yet very plaid dress, I knew it was the perfect way to rock the plaid trend without adding girth to my frame.
This dress turned out to be so comfortable! The top is a cotton blend which is soft and breathable; perfect for New York’s humidity. I loved the layered plaid fabric, and pretend arm tie around the waist. I decided to give it some fashion week, street style edge, by pairing the dress with sneakers. Now, this is fashion week, so I wasn’t going to pair it with my cardio kickboxing sneakers, oh no, these sneakers had to be fashion week appropriate. Enter Gucci. . .

So when I spotted this pair of fall 2019 Gucci sneakers, I knew they would be my workhorse shoe of fashion week. It’s always good to have fashionable, yet comfortable, shoes on hand for busy days of running to shows. These sneakers encompassed two fall 2019 shoe trends; lug platforms, and mis-matched. Yes, you read that right, mis-matched.
There is a huge trend right now to wear mis-matched shoes. People around the globe are wearing the same shoe, in two different colors. I am not sure if they come like that, or if people are buying the same shoe in two colors; nevertheless, mis-matched feet were everywhere on the streets of New York Fashion Week. My version of the trend was a bit more, shall we say, understated?
These Gucci sneakers had one green back, and one red back. That’s all. Nothing crazy. Just a tiny touch of a crazy trend. I don’t think anyone who saw my shoes even noticed the backs were different. Haha
I wore these sneakers almost every day. They were really comfy, and kept my feet happy throughout fashion week. Love that!
Stay tuned to seeing more of this dress as fall progresses. I plan to pair with boots and a jacket. It’s my favorite dress of the season!
