Plaid Crazy

Whatever would a good winter wardrobe be, without a series of plaids in your closet? I think my plaid obsession has stuck with me, since my catholic school days, when I would try to jazz up my plaid uniform skirt, by adding accessories (which, were absolutely not allowed), and always considering my shoes. Plaid is just one of those feel-good prints that makes you want to wrap yourself all up in it, stay warm and cozy, while sipping on hot toddy's by the fire. And, while we don't have a fireplace in our little Brooklyn abode, you get the picture. 
Usually, I just go for an oversized plaid flannel, denim, and ankle boots. This is actually my uniform, and over the years it's just never failed me. I even wore my flannel out this passed Saturday night (avec leather pants, most naturally), and bounced around the East Village with friends, wearing my very boyish flannel. Point is, you don't need to 'do the most' with your wardrobe, or with your plaids. Pairing plaid prints with textures - leathers, mohairs, and faux's - considering the silhouette of it all - oversized and baggy, boxy or sleek - and piecing it all together with bold accessories - I always go for layered silver or subtle gold rings - is all you need for a casual, more than appropriate for days at the office or a night out with friends, plaid look.
Dave prefers to pair plaids with quilted leather jackets and blazers. A pretty serious layering tactic, this 2-in-1 Twill Blazer with detachable vest from Original Penguin, is an ideal, easy-dressing must-have. 
What We're Wearing:
Erica: Joe Fresh Sweatshirt, District Clothing T-Shirt, Topshop Midi Skirt, ASOS Coat and Sunglasses, Catbird Rings.
Dave: Joes Jeans Flannel, Original Penguin Blazer, Topman Denim, Zara Boots.

  8. Hi guys! Long time no see :). Hope you are doing great! Both looking gorgeous as always. Ah, plaids, I'm completely out of my mind crazy for plaids. Created myself a ridiculous collection ever since I got hooked in the 90s hihi. Would love to add the plaids you guys are wearing to my collection :P.

    Kisses,
