I am loving this new fashion series I discovered between my fashion blogging friends. Each month, we are sent a style and then we, as best as we can, try to recreate it and find a new way to wear clothing we would not normally wear.
This month, we were given the style choice of dark gingham fashion for the fall and how to wear darker tones this time of year. This is the original photo “via StyleLovely“.
It’s funny because, right after I got the email of when our posting date was, I received a package in the mail from Amazon of a man’s gingham/plaid shirt that I had forgotten I ordered.
When it came in, it was way too small for any man in my family, so I decided to give it a try as the style choice for this post. Now, I will be the first to tell you that I have not ever been a really big fan of plaid, but after putting this shirt on, I may change my mind.
This man shirt was the perfect plaid or gingham style to really dress up my fall look for the day. Instead of buttoning it up, I left it undone and tied it at the bottom.
I paired it with a white racerback tank top and my dark denim pants.
I added a pop of color by wearing my chocolate riding boots and then topped it off with my silver accent jewelry.
The outfit worked great for me and looked dressy enough to go on a date night, but casual enough I could wear it anywhere!
I really loved all the different colors of blue in this top – light, medium and dark all mixed together for the perfect look.
How would you wear this style choice? Do you like gingham prints and plaid prints?
